It isn't only football and hockey players who suffer from concussions.  Any athlete is at risk, including females.   Studies show girls are reporting nearly twice as many concussions as boys in sports played by both.  Now, new research out of Michigan State University shows that females and younger athletes who suffered concussions took longer to recover than males and older athletes.

Milennials. Digital natives. Generation Z.  Many terms describe the young adults who’ve grown up with technology.  They carry pocket devices that contain more computational power than was used to put a man on the moon.  From kindergarten through college, educators are re-tooling their classes to prepare students for a quickly evolving media world.

Michigan State University is no exception.  All semester, five student teams have been competing to design a multimedia campaign that explains the university’s new communications strategy, the “Media Sandbox.”  On Saturday,  one of those teams will be announced the winner.
