The University of Minnesota's Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport has released a video documentary called "Concussion and Female Athletes: the Untold Story."
From the Tucker Center:
Concussions and their devastating consequences affect athletes in all sports and at all levels. However, while sport-related concussion has ignited a national conversation and public debate about this serious brain injury, the majority of attention has focused on male athletes. Critical issues-and unanswered questions-surrounding the impact of concussion on female athletes have been largely ignored. Are females as or even more susceptible to concussion than males? Are female athletes less likely to report a concussion when compared to their male counterparts? Through the personal stories and experiences of coaches, athletes and their families, as well as in-depth interviews with nationally recognized scholars and medical experts, this documentary examines the causes underlying concussion and offers practical solutions to help prevent and treat sports-related concussion injuries in female athletes.
The video documentary can be found on the Tucker Center website and at The MN Video Vault, a project of Twin Cities Public Television.
