Summary Managing Youth Sports Concussions: Education Versus Legislation--Washington State Passes a New Law explores the fact that concussions are a common problem, with serious consequences, in the United States. Touching on the issues of health/fitness, medical care, rehabilitation, and public policy, the DVD makes a compelling argument for the fact that physicians have an opportunity to help prevent a tragedy from occurring after an individual experiences an initial concussion. In that regard, the DVD details the process of developing the Zachery Lystedt Law (named after a high school-aged football player who was paralyzed in an on-the-field accident) in Washington state and the movement to pass the law in every state
