Key Organizations Meet at ACSM for Strategic Summit on Concussion in Youth Sports

National sport governing bodies and medical experts from across the United States gathered at the ACSM National Center last week to devise strategies for youth concussion prevention, awareness and education.

Stanley Herring, M.D., FACSM, moderated the discussion. Herring has been instrumental in ACSM’s leadership of the concussion initiative and the passage of the Zackery Lystedt Law in Washington State. The Lystedt Law requires young athletes suspected of sustaining a concussion to be cleared by a medical professional before returning to play.

Summit participants included the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, USA Football, the National Collegiate Athletic Association, and many more. Outcomes will include concussion awareness, education and advocacy initiatives.
