Athletic Training Student Challenge
NATA
Your college/university athletic training club has a unique opportunity to contribute to the NATA Research & Education Foundation through the Athletic Training Student Challenge, and you get to determine how your gift will be used! As an ATSC participant, your donation can be made to the 2015 Annual Fund, to help the NATA Foundation with important initiatives like education, mentorship, research and scholarship programs. Or your school can elect to designate its donation to go directly to one of our NATA Foundation research or scholarship endowments that hasn't yet been fully funded. Not only will this help the endowment get closer to completion, the student club will be part of history by contributing to a research or scholarship that will be granted in perpetuity. Last year's efforts raised more than $9,000 for the NATA Foundation's annual fund and endowment program. We're hoping that, with your help, the 2015 challenge will be even bigger and better!

Even Suspected Concussion Cause for Concern
Philly.com
Over the past decade, we have seen a significant change in the management and recognition of concussions. Many years ago, there was substantial dispute in simply diagnosing concussions with many people feeling that concussions only occurred when a person lost consciousness. Terms like "bell ringer" or "dings" were often used to describe and minimize the concern for some head injuries. Fortunately, recognizing concussions has become much more common practice.

AAOS Advocates ACL Actions
The Times of Northwest Indiana
In the aftermath of a tear of the knee's ACL, patient and family — while mourning the loss of a season and possibly a career — must decide the whens, whys and wherefores of reconstructive surgery. And they are unlikely to receive an identical opinion from any two orthopaedic surgeons they see. The difference of opinions stems from the multiple variables which go in to the decision-making process.

A New Turf That Tackles Safety
PermianBasin360.com
Lee High School in Midland, Texas, has brand new turf for its football field, but it's what's underneath that will have a huge impact on the players. "We're going to have about two inches, two and a half inches of pretty good cushion there to help our kids," said MISD Athletic Director Todd Howey. It's just an extra layer of safety. "You've got your grass, you got about an inch and a half of rubber, then underneath here there's another inch of shock pad," said Howey.
