#TBI Brain injuries in sports getting attention — at Draft Day Sacramento
We’re proud to support Draft Day Sacramento on Friday May 29, 2015. Draft Day is a fundraiser event featuring a fashion show and a lineup of entertainment and NFL players speaking out in support of Dondre Ransom, a local injured military veteran and football player, while increasing awareness about the reality of sports concussions.
“The increased incidence of traumatic brain injuries in sports has resulted in new rules and regulations being adopted by sports leagues like the NFL, NCAA and others. They are designed to decrease the risk of concussions and other injuries. It’s a great first step but it’s not enough.
As the rate of TBI’s increase annually, the services to treat them need to increase too…
…we need elected officials to stop talking about cutbacks for TBI and start introducing legislation that will help children and adults suffering from brain injuries.” Read more: Brain injuries in sports getting attention — finally, Op-Ed by Eric Ratinoff.
