Urge House Members to Cosponsor HR 1347, The Concussion Treatment and Care Tools Act of 2009

As reported in an earlier edition of Policy Corner, members of the House of Representatives have introduced the Concussion Treatment and Care Tools Act of 2009 (HR 1347), a bill designed to ensure adoption, dissemination, and implementation by elementary and secondary schools of concussion management guidelines for the purpose of better treatment and awareness of the injuries of the estimated 3.8 million young people that suffer sports and recreational concussions each year.

The sponsors of this Act, Representatives Bill Pascrell, Jr. and Todd R. Platts, have called upon Congress to 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.

Because the support of this initiative is vital to the protection of school aged children engaging in sports and recreational activities, it is important for us to urge as many Congressional Members as possible to sign on as cosponsors!
