Kansas Schools Get Serious About Football-Related Head Injuries

The KHI News Service is an independent news agency based in Topeka, primarily focused on health policy and state government issues.

Questions about the long-term effects of football on the brain have trickled down from the NFL to the high school level. There’s little research on players at that level.  Even so, the organization that governs high school sports in Kansas is directing coaches and players to cut down on the amount of hitting allowed at practice.  Reporting for Heartland Health Monitor, Andy Marso has more.

Andy Marso is a reporter for the KHI News Service in Topeka and a contributor to Heartland Health Monitor, a collaborative effort to report on health and health issues in Kansas and Missouri.  The partners —— Kansas Public Radio, KCUR, KCPT Public Television and the KHI News Service —— strive to bring listeners and readers timely, accurate and comprehensive coverage of a topic that leaves no one untouched.
