Ahead of the Game:
The Parents' Guide to Youth Sports Concussion
by Rosemarie S. Moser Ph.D.
Ahead of the Game is the first trade book of its kind, and will be eagerly anticipated by parents, coaches, teachers, and health care professionals alike. Ahead of the Game not only covers the nuts and bolts of identification, management, and treatment of concussion in youth—in user-friendly, easy-to-understand language—it will also introduce the reader to a new concept in preventive medicine: Brain Hygiene. Just as our children receive dental hygiene and routine physical exams, there are steps we can take to protect their most vital organ—the brain—before an injury occurs.
Foreword is written by U. S. Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr.
