Last week's announcement that a foundation named in honor of the late Chicago Bear Dave Duerson had donated a King-Devick test kit to each of Chicago Public School's 80 high school football programs for use in
assessing athletes for suspected concussion on the sports sideline, and that the foundation will work with CPS and the K-D Test manufacturer to implement system-wide testing, was welcome news.
So too was that the Dave Duerson Family Foundation, thru individual and corporate sponsors, plans to roll out its program in other cities in the U.S.
The announcement that the Dave Duerson Foundation was donating a King-Devick test kit to all 80 Chicago high
school football programs was welcome news, but it isn't a magic bullet in sideline concussion assessment.
