Host Larry Cohen is joined by co-host, Nolan Robinson and returning guest, David Kracke, the Brain Injury Advocate-Coordinator for the Center on Brain Injury Research and Training (CBIRT), to tell us about CBIRT’s great work in concussion prevention management, and what is being done to make sports safer with smart technology.

On Ringler Radio, host Larry Cohen and co‑host, Robert P. Caples, Jr. talk about a recent settlement in litigation brought by former hockey players against the National Hockey League surrounding concussions and CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) with attorney Mike Andrews from the Beasley Allen law firm. Is the NHL doing enough to prevent CTE? And what does this mean for concussion protocol in youth sports as well?

Professional athletes in the NFL and other professional sports have concussions on the field, leading to questions about the long-time impact on a player’s health and workers compensation litigation cases. Today on Ringler Radio, host, Larry Cohen along with co-host, Phillip Krause talk to Kenneth KutnerPhD., neuropsychological consultant to the NFL, as they discuss cases like Mike Webster, Harry Carson and even Aaron Hernandez, plus research and protocols.
