-- Feb. 23: The New Concussions Bill -- About 300,000 Americans will suffer a sports-related concussion this year. The Pennsylvania legislature recently passed a bill aimed at reducing the number of head injuries among young athletes by imposing stricter regulations on interscholastic sports. A panel of experts will explain the measure and answer questions about head injuries. Ruben Echemendia, neuropsychologist and owner of Psychological and Neurobehavioral Associates Inc.; Alison Krajewski, athletic trainer at State College Area High School; and Adam Yarger, student at Penns Valley Area High School; are confirmed guests.
