Wow! Is it just us or did January whiz right by and now we’re already heading into February and the Superbowl? Here’s a roundup of some items to close off the month.
Next Congressional Hearing in Houston Feb. 1st
If you’ve missed the most recent announcement about the ongoing Congressional Judiciary Committee’s study of concussions in football and sports, the next hearing will be this Monday afternoon in Houston. Some of the speakers scheduled include Dr. Bennet Omalu, Co-Director, Brain Injury Research Institute, West Virginia University; Ron Courson, Director of Sports Medicine, University of Georgia Athletic Association; Dr. Stan Herring, Team physician for Seattle Seahawks, American College of Sports Medicine; Dr. Howard Derman, Concussion Specialist for Houston Texans; Director, Headache and Pain Center at Methodist Hospital; Dick Benson, High School Football Safety Advocate, Austin, TX; Jon Butler, Vice President, National Council of Youth Sports; Trevor Cobb, Retired NFL Player. (Thankfully, Dr. No is NOT scheduled to make a fool of himself again at this hearing.) This one will be held at 1:00 pm this Monday, Feb. 1st at the Prairie View A&M University College of Nursing Auditorium in Houston, Texas. We’ll be posting links to the hearing as they become available on Monday.
