We are incredibly excited to let you know that the Pink Concussions Study research results will be presented in poster form at the
this weekend in Chicago. This is a great opportunity to share this information with neurologists working in the concussion field.
Since our paper has not been accepted yet for publication, we cannot yet release the results to the media. While turned down for publication, the reviewer wrote this about our paper:
"I commend the authors on a very interesting and well-written article. Due to the minimal research on the topic, I think the paper will be interesting to researchers conducting concussion research. I have only a few concerns regarding the article in its current state that are listed below."
With his constructive suggestions on how to improve our paper plus the feedback I will get over the weekend in Chicago, I am convinced we can get this paper published.
Male Athletes and Concussions
We could use your help as we still are recruiting male athletes for our 2nd concussion survey. We will compare this data against our concussion survey of 538 women athletes. But after thousands of tweets, only 82 men have signed up.
Could you help? Please create a Facebook post or tweet about our male survey to reach out to your teammates, friends or coaches.
Wanted: Males, any sport level w/concussion history to take online #concussion survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MaleAthleteConcussions
Here are some photos to use... We put on our sister site SportsCAPP in case the name PInk Concussions was unappealing to men.

Wanted: Male athletes with concussion history any sport/level for online concussion survey.
Participants are needed for an International Study of Male Athletes and Concussions to explore athletes’ experience with concussion, reporting to coaches, and health issues. Will compare male responses to female study.
Concussions maybe invisible, but we now know our study will illuminate their effects on female athletes' lives. And we hope to learn about the past to help educate all athletes in the future.
