Senator John McCain’s Speech in Philadelphia

Here is an excerpt:

“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”

A video of his full speech is here.

NCAA and the Well-Being of Student Athletes

NJCU sponsored an extremely informative talk today by Dr. Brian Hainline, the NCAA’s chief medical officer, on the trends, data, and best practices that should be employed when dealing with the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of student-athletes who are  ambassadors from our university to the outside world. Here are some relevant links:

The Sports Science Institute of the NCAA, headed by Dr. Hainline, has many publications exploring the intersections of science, medicine, and sports.

This key article contains many of the points Dr. Hainline stressed in his presentation – A National Study on the Effects of Concussion in Collegiate Athletes and US Military Service Academy Members: The NCAA–DoD Concussion Assessment, Research and Education (CARE) Consortium Structure and Methods

PubMed Central contains almost 300 full-text articles on “ncaa medicine“; these articles are from only 2016-17! A search on “concussion sports” yields almost 600 full-text articles for the same time period.

The CARE Consortium “… endeavors to provide necessary infrastructure and scientific expertise to study concussion.” Please check its “Resources” and “Publications” tabs.

Here is a YouTube video of Dr Hainline discussing concussion and college sports; here is another one of him explaining what symptoms athletic officials should look for if they suspect a concussion.

The HEADS UP site from the CDC contains a plethora of useful information along with a credit-bearing training video for clinicians. Publications, reports, and fact sheets are here.

Please come here for the hundreds of bills and reports from Congress dealing with concussion.
