Concussion study by Hershey, Pa. docs looking for volunteers

If you are a pro MMA fighter in the York-Lancaster-Harrisburg area, call Chris Fetrow at 717-425-0988 for more information. The study is being conducted by doctors at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. At the very least, fighters get one baseline MRI. In the unfortunate event they are KO’ed, they will receive several more MRIs over time, tracking their recovery. This study is extremely important, because as a sport, MMA is very young, and we don’t fully know the effects of blows to the head, as opposed to their effects in other sports like hockey, boxing and football. I support this study 100 percent, for the safety of fighters everywhere.
