House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) last week announced that the committee will undertake a comprehensive review of the causes, effects, and treatments of concussions in the New Year. The goal of the review, to be conducted by the Oversight and Investigations, Health, and Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade Subcommittees, is to bring experts from across the medical field, military, sports leagues, and other stakeholders together to advance the understanding of these traumatic brain injuries. Additional information about the committee’s review will be posted on the Energy and Commerce Committee’s website.
