Mark Hyman

Mark Hyman, sports journalist, author and adjunct professor of sport management, was a panelist at the Association of Health Care Journalists in Boston. The topic, “Will Research Drive More Changes in School Sports?” focused on the increasing attention that is being paid to the pervasive number of sports injuries.  More than 3.5 million children each year need medical treatment for sports injuries, and more than three dozen states have passed youth concussion safety laws in response to a growing body of research showing the long-term damaging effects of these injuries. Experts are are also working to better protect female athletes, who are more likely to get concussions or sustain knee damage. In addition to Hyman, panelists included:

• Chris Nowinski, co-director, Boston University Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy,
• Kathryn Ackerman, MD, MPH, co-director, Boston Children’s Hospital Female Athlete Program, and
• Moderator: Kelley Weiss, broadcast reporter, CHCF Center for Health Reporting.
