Taking Action in California
NATA
On Nov. 22, NATA joined forces with U.S. Rep. George Miller (CA-7), Ranking Member of the House Education and Workforce Committee, at Northgate High School in Calif. to advocate for youth athlete safety. Representative Miller reintroduced federal legislation entitled "Protecting Student Athletes from Concussion Act of 2013" that would set the standards for concussion management, including return to play and return to academics decisions. NATA worked closely with Rep. Miller and lead sponsor Rep. Timothy Bishop (NY-1) in advance of the introduction in developing language.

Also in attendance to discuss concussion care were the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and former NFL player, Honor Jackson. NATA's Vice President Scott Sailor proudly awarded Northgate's Athletic Trainer Glen Barker, MS, ATC, and staff with the Safe Sports School Award for making sports safety a priority in their school.
