USA Today - Kids With Previous Concussions Take Longer to Recover

Gerard Gioia, Ph.D., associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, was interviewed for a story by USA Today, highlighting a new study that found the recovery time for a concussion increases for kids and young adults, if they have had a previous concussion or multiple blows in the same year. Gioia points out that the benefits of teamwork and physical activity for children vastly outweigh the risks of concussion.
