Professor R. J. Elbin will be on The Hog Call to discuss concussions in athletics and the new film “Concussion” from Sony Pictures
Concussions have become a hot topic in professional athletics such as football and boxing. The long term effects of this consistent and continuous head trauma experienced by professional athletes long after retirement can be fatal. Due to recent cases involving mental instability that leads to murder-suicide, mental impairment that causes physical disability, and pre-mature death in some instances concussion protocols have been indoctrined into these sports. Dr. R.J. Elbin, a professor at the University of Arkansas and a concussion expert, will be joining The Hog Call on Thursday January 28th, 2016 to duscuss the film, concussion research, and its impact on all levels of sports from pee-wee leagues to professional levels. Tune in every Monday- Friday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on 1190AM or online at 1190thefan.com. You can also call in to the show and give your opinion on the concussion discussion at (877)-496-1190
Yeah, it’s from seven years ago, but it’s still worth watching again.
