It’s way past time for more medical information and media coverage about the dangers of concussions.
Thanks to Linda Pourmassina for her very informative column in The Seattle Times [“Concussions are a bigger issue than most people realize in women’s sports,” Healthy Living, Feb. 2].
School nurses have had head bump protocols forever — rest, assessment, letters and phone calls to parents, and referrals to medical care providers. School nurses have protected and treated students with head bumps long before the NFL denied any concerns.
KCTS presented an amazing documentary on Jan. 28. “League of denial: The NFL’s concussion crisis.” Every parent, student athlete, coach and professional athlete should view this film.
The NFL has consistently denied health concerns over the years.
