SPO-005: Concussions in Youth Sports

 
Concussions in Youth Sports: The Wisconsin Medical Society supports state legislation that would require that children and adolescents participating in any and all organized sports activities who have symptoms consistent with concussion cannot return to play or practice without written permission from a properly-trained health care professional.

The Wisconsin Medical Society supports local and statewide efforts that would increase concussion education for health care professionals, parents, children, adolescents, and athletic coaches participating in any and all organized sports activities. (HOD, 0411)*
