NCAA chief medical officer reinforces the need for concussion management

In an editorial for Neurology, the journal of the American Academy of Neurology, Dr. Brian Hainline and other experts outline the expectations and requirements for concussion management in college sports.

"Because coaches have the greatest influence on student-athletes, they need to act in a unified and convincing manner with regard to concussion management. Student-athletes truly need to understand that they are not commodities, but rather competitors who are surrounded by a team that places safety, excellence, and wellness above all else."
