Congress Turns Attention To Concussions

The U.S. Congress hosted a hearing on head injuries to high school athletes yesterday and were told young people who suffer concussions are at a greater risk of long-term physical and mental consequences. The Government Accountability Office issued a report stating that the number of concussions at the high school level may be estimated to be low due to players not reporting them. In addition to all of the research presented, Congress heard from Michelle Pelton, a former high school basketball and softball player whose life has been affected by the five concussions she sustained.
