With so much being made on the long-term health issues of pro athletes, what happens to an NCAA student-athlete who has to retire due to concussions? What residual effects are they still dealing with after retirement? How do they go about living a normal life after head trauma ended their playing careers earlier than expected? Life After Concussions in College Sports offers a unique, personal perspective on an important public health issue of our time that’s still underreported at the college level. We hear from student-athletes who’ve had to retire about what life is like after ending their college athletic careers due to concussions.
