Concussions and CTE: Everything Sports Parents Need to Know
It’s Super Bowl Week and all eyes will be on Santa Clara, California as the Carolina Panthers meet the Denver Broncos. And with the increased awareness of concussions, all eyes will also be on the sideline staff evaluating the players for concussions and determining whether they can return to the action. While the players in the Super Bowl are professionals, what do parents of youth football players—and of other young athletes—need to know about concussions? And what about CTE, which has recently entered mainstream conversations thanks to the film, Concussion?
Listen in as Chris Nowinski, co-founder and executive director of the Concussion Legacy Foundation and co-director of the BU CTE Center, explains what you need to know about concussions, Second-impact Syndrome, Post-concussion Syndrome, and CTE. If you're the parent of a youth athlete, this is one podcast you won't want to miss!
