The Defense Department has teamed up with the National Collegiate Athletic Association to study the effects of concussions on service members and student-athletes. The project is run by a group of investigators dubbed the Concussion Assessment, Research and Education, or CARE, Consortium. Steve Broglio is an associate professor of kinesiology at the University of Michigan and director of the NeuroTrauma Research Lab, one of the consortium's three research branches. He tells Federal News Radio's Matt Wingfield more about the consortium.
