  • Kosta Karageorge, an Ohio State wrestler and football player who hid concussion symptoms because he felt it was the manly thing to do, killed himself in 2014.

  • Researchers estimate between 1.1 million and 1.9 million children are concussed annually. But they can’t be sure how big the problem is. Many concussions go unnoticed, many children go untreated, and most monitoring systems focus on student-athletes, when recreation league games can carry as much risk. Each system culls incidence information from only one type of provider, whereas injured youths receive care in a variety of settings. That means there’s no centralized source to see who is getting concussed — or how. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention plans to create and oversee a surveillance system to collect data on concussions across the country

  • Every year, almost half a million children across the United States visit emergency rooms for concussions. But recent studies find that number may undercount just how many kids really have concussions. In fact, a study published in the June 20 edition of the journal Pediatrics estimates that the number of concussions among those 18 years old and younger is higher, possibly between 1.1 million and 1.9 million annually.

  • University of New England has joined about two dozen colleges nationwide that are using head-impact sensors to conduct research on the force and frequency of head hits in sports. Many of the studies have been done on soccer and football players. UNE’s researchers chose men’s lacrosse because no academic studies have been conducted on the sport.
