Grant to Support Sports-Related Concussion Research

by

Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) was awarded grant funding to support the university’s involvement in the largest-ever study of sports-related concussions, led by the Department of Defense and the NCAA.

WSSU is one of 30 universities in the U.S. that is participating in the study, and is the only historically Black college or university involved with the study, according to WSSU News.

The study, called the NCAA-DOD Concussion Assessment, Research and Education Consortium (CARE) has collected data from more than 39,000 study-athletes and cadets at 30 college and military service academies. CARE’s next phase will consist of comprehensive testing of the study-athletes and cadets when they leave college and up to four years after their collegiate careers ended.
