Thanks to COVID-19, school sports have been re-ordered. Rather than football in the fall, kids are playing it now. That’s just one sport that puts a kids head in the line of danger. How many blows are too many? How to protect them? What do we know now about concussion, treatment, and long-term effects? Dr. Daniel Daneshvar is the director of the Institute for Brain Research and Innovation at Teach-Aids. He also founded Team Up Against Concussions, and he's on the faculty at Harvard Medical school.


Digital-exclusive health reports from Dr. Benita Zahn. Look for new episodes every Monday and Thursday.
