New Sports Concussion Guidelines

My son, Ian, with a concussion after being hit with a baseball .
I just learned that the American Academy of Neurology has issued new guidelines for the treatment of sports concussions. This is an issue that's near and dear to my heart and I've blogged about it before. If you have a child that plays a sport, please take a minute and read through this article. (And, don't underestimate the risk to baseball players.) 

Many thanks to Jim Potter, Senior VP for Advocacy and Operations at the American Academy of Physician Assistants for bringing this to my attention today.
