Brain Injury Links of the Week

There is so much going on within the field of brain injury, that it’s difficult to stay abreast of all the latest news, research and happenings. With that in mind, we decided to start a new, weekly feature called “Links of the Week.” These posts will include the latest videos, articles, blogs we’re reading, etc. so you can stay on top of the latest in brain injury.

Have suggestions or ideas for links or articles we should feature? Leave a comment below and include the link or email us at socialmedia@biama.org.

Concussion is a hot topic among not only those in the field of brain injury, but also among parents, teachers, coaches and student athletes. The New York Times published an article this week “Concussion fears lead to growth in specialized clinics for young athletes” about the opening of dozens of youth concussion clinics in approximately 35 states, despite the fact that there is still “no agreed-upon, established formula” for the treatment of brain injuries.”

Last Sunday evening, 60 Minutes featured an excerpt from “Invisible Wounds” and shared the experience of a military veteran with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Missed the broadcast? Catch up here.

CBS News also published an article on concussion this week. The article features startling results from a survey of 120 high school athletes and their thoughts and behavior when it comes to concussion safety.
