Consider Long-Term Effects of Concussion in Retirement Decision, Says Guskiewicz

Concussion expert, Kevin Guskiewicz, PhD, ATC, Kenan Distinguished Professor and Director of the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, says that, while he hesitates to say that any specific number of concussions should prompt a decision to retire from contact or collision sports, it is important for athletes and their parents to consider the long-term effects of concussion, including depression and memory impairment.
