William P. Meehan, III, M.D. (Sports Concussion Doctor): I Owe My Career Choice To A Single Patient

Two years ago, in recognition of April as Youth Sports Safety Month, MomsTeam asked 30 experts to write a blog answering two questions: first, how or why did they get into their field, and second, how have they made a difference in the life of a youth athlete in the past year.

Today, we reprise the blog submitted by William P. Meehan, III, M.D., Director of the Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention, Sports Concussion Clinic, and Research for the Brain Injury Center at Boston Children's Hospital.
