BIAA mobilizes Grassroots Advocates in Support of The conTACT Act
On Thursday, June 4, 2009, BIAA circulated an action alert with the intent to urge members of Congress to sign on to HR 1347, the Concussion Treatment and Care Tools Act of 2009(ConTACT Act).
The bill would require the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to convene a conference to adopt official concussion guidelines. The bill would also provide grants to states for the purpose of ensuring that elementary and secondary schools implement these guidelines by funding computerized pre-season baseline and post-injury neuropsychological testing for student athletes.
