Over the previous yr I’ve been volunteering with the charitable group Fighting Foundation and one in every of our objectives is bringing higher concussion and CTE training to fight sports activities. A key cause being knowledge exhibiting that higher educated fighters get much less CTE.
I’m very proud to announce (thanks largely to the tireless advocacy of Preventing Basis founder and board member Carla Duran) that this month the Nevada Athletic Fee added vital mind well being and security info to their web site.
British Columbia turned the primary fee to undertake CTE and Concussion fundamentals for fighters. Adopted by the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Department of Athletic Regulation which turned the primary Tribal Fee to take action. Now Nevada turned the primary US State fee to undertake these key supplies. A significant step by one of the influential regulators for fight sports activities. Thanks to Govt Director is Jeff Mullin for taking this optimistic step.
Nevada has not solely adopted Preventing Foundations CTE and Concussion posters (co-created by the Association of Ringside Physicians) but additionally the Basis’s mind well being fundamentals video together with a brief check on the basic materials.
We hope each fee follows this lead and brings key mind well being information to fighters.
