Dr. Moser Comments on New Guidelines for Youth Soccer for NJTV

Rosemarie Scolaro Moser, Director, Sports Concussion Center of New Jersey said “it’s a great step forward in terms of educating people.”

Doctor Rosemarie Scolaro Moser is a leading expert on youth sports concussions. She believes part of the problem is that kids start competitive sports younger and they’re playing year round. “Every time you have an athletic exposure you increase your probability of having a concussion. So by the time the student is in high school they may have had a number of concussions.”

As the Director of the Sports Concussion Center of New Jersey and a member of the CDCP’s panel for pediatric mild traumatic brain injury, Moser thinks the U.S. Soccer Federation got this one right. “I believe that scientists and researchers are thinking, yes, shaking the brain repeatedly especially a young, vulnerable brain will result in changes. We’re in the process now of trying to figure out how we’re going to measure that.”
