Ira Sherman, Vice President of the Brain Injury Association of D.C., has reached out the
NFL Players Association in an effort to enlist their support in educating local students of all ages that are engaged in playing football to inform and educate them to the risks of a
brain injury. It is the hope of the
Brain Injury Association of D.C. to have the NFL Players Association add its knowledge and resources to the effort to educate both players and coaches regarding the potential risk of a
traumatic brain injury as a result of a failure to properly protect against concussion and/or diagnosing it at the time it takes place.
