This Thursday June 23rd, we are thrilled to have Dr. Jason Carthen and Mike Duerson on Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio.
Dr Jason is known by some as “The Leadership Linebacker™”. He is a former Professional Football Player with the World Champion New England Patriots, an international speaker, author, avid blogger, media-personality, and philanthropist. Today we are going to discuss his views on concussions and football.
Mike Duerson suffered a concussion while playing college basketball for IUPUI at the age of 18. He is now 57years old. In 2009, Mike was ruled as “Gravely Mentally Disabled” by the government and removed from the workforce. Currently, he is a philanthropist and the Founder of Dave Duerson Athletic Safety Fund, Inc. which provides nationwide Concussion Testing called (ImPACT) for student athletes in grades 7 – 12, in honor of his brother.
The foundation also provides Concussion Education curriculum to school districts for children in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade.
