My platform is Concussion Awareness in youth sports. I am currently working with Rhode Island Senator Frank Lombardi to spread awareness and pass a new bill aspiring to have a concussion specialist at every youth sporting event, and keep youth athletes safe in the game.
Currently, five out of ten concussions don't get diagnosed. My goal is to help concussions be diagnosed and cared for quickly and properly.
The Concussion Legacy Foundation is dedicated to solving the concussion crisis by advancing the study, treatment, and prevention of the effects of brain trauma in athletes and other at-risk groups. We achieve this mission through advocacy, education, policy development, and medical research.
Keeping children and teens healthy and safe is always a top priority. Whether you are a parent, youth sports coach,school coach,school professional, or health care provider, the link below will help you recognize, respond to, and minimize the risk of concussion or other serious brain injury.
One of the reasons concussion awareness is so close to my heart, is because I have had multiple concussions. This then resulted in Post-Concussive Syndrome. I hope by sharing my story this will encourage those who my be experiencing something similar. To read about me and my story click the link below
