Comprehensive Concussion Review to Begin on March 14


WASHINGTON, DC – House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) and Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Tim Murphy (R-PA) today announced that the roundtable kicking off the committee’s comprehensive concussion review has been rescheduled for Monday, March 14, 2016, at 2 PM.

“The goal of this review is to advance the conversation beyond headlines and traditional boundaries to make a real difference for families across the country,” said Upton and Murphy, who will lead the roundtable. “This roundtable will bring together experts on head trauma – including the public health, military, athletic, and research communities. We want to explore what is known, and not known, about concussions, and how the research community is working to meet these challenges. At the end of the day, we want to identify opportunities to achieve meaningful progress in our ability to diagnose and treat concussions.”

The leaders continued, “There are no easy answers or simple solutions when it comes to head injuries. We look forward to a deep, informative discussion as our work kicks into high gear.”

Additional information about the roundtable, including a list of participants, will be posted here as it is available.
