Concussions, CTE, and Conditions in Between

What: Should young athletes be allowed to play tackle football?

Are concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) a public health problem or merely one associated with professional sports? Over the past decade, controversy has grown over whether sports concussions and head impacts lead to progressive degenerative brain diseases such as CTE. With the debate unfolding in scientific journals, media, and the courtroom, CTE is now widely acknowledged as affecting a growing number of former professional players.

Yet, considerable ambiguity remains as to the prevalence and pathology of CTE among the general population. Some individuals believe that the risk posed by head impacts requires banning tackle football among youth athletes- and they have introduced legislation to do so. Others assert that the physical, mental, and social benefits of organized sports outweigh the risks, based upon current scientific evidence.

Join us for stimulating debate as expert presenters and panelists discuss this issue and examine how existing science impacts the way youth football is portrayed in the media, how it is addressed by legislators and policymakers, and how it affects those tasked with administering to and educating our children.
