7/23/2015 – U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — Hundreds of basic cadets lined up at the Air Force Academy July 13 to help experts learn more about head trauma.
All Academy cadets are taking part in a three-year, $30M collaboration between the Defense Department and the NCAA to study concussions. Eighteen universities in the United States and the military service academies are participating in the research project.
The study coincides with the White House Summit on sports concussions, a presidential commission created in May 2014 to encourage the identification, treatment and prevention of serious head injuries.
