H.R. 6615 AKA the Traumatic Brain Injury Program Reauthorization Act
I recommend and support passage of HOUSE bill H.R.6615 AKA the Traumatic Brain Injury Program Reauthorization Act of 2018 — would reauthorize a national concussion surveillance system to determine concussions’ prevalence and incidence. This surveillance system would act under the authority of the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), providing $5 million in funds to carry out the national concussion surveillance system.
Traumatic brain injuries affect 2.5 million high school students every year, in addition to elderly patients and athletes in contact sports. These injuries can have significant consequences, including death.
Federal funding for both prevention and research are needed in this case with supplemental support from a $1 excise tax per NFL Ticket 🎫 being a major contributor to brain 🧠 contact injuries research.
