Associate Professor of Kinesiology Comments on Brain Damage and Safety of NFL
The International Business Times quoted Cynthia Trowbridge, associate professor of kinesiology and athletic trainer, in an article about San Francisco 49ers linebacker retiring after one season amid concerns about brain damage and the safety of football. Trowbridge said the NFL needs to ensure that its medical professionals who are tasked with taking concussed players out of games are supervised by other medics instead of coaches and general managers.
