Wed, June 20, 2018 11:45 AM – 1:15 PM
Join us for a fascinating talk on the new efforts to protect student athletes in Illinois. Tregg Duerson, a mental health advocate and son of 1985 Bears Super Bowl great Dave Duer-son, will co-lead the discussion. Dave Duerson’s tragic suicide has sparked awareness of the links between concussions and brain damage in football players. The Dave Duerson Act to Prevent CTE is a proposed law that would ban organized tackle football for Illinois children 12 years old and under.
State Representative Stephanie Kifowit, a leader on related issues in the Illinois General Assembly, will also add color to the conversation. Representative Kifowit is in her third two-year term of office representing the 84th District, which includes Aurora, Oswego, Montgomery, and Naperville.
