Packers host Health and Safety Forum for Wisconsin youth and high school coaches

Posted Jun 11, 2013

The Green Bay Packers hosted an NFL Health and Safety Forum for more than 50 youth and high school coaches Monday, June 10, at Lambeau Field.

Medical experts and representatives from the Packers addressed safety matters facing youth athletes at the event, which was the first of its kind for the Packers. They addressed their role in promoting player health and safety, and discussed the ways the NFL is making sports safer for all athletes. The group also participated in a Q&A with the coaches following the presentations from each instructor.

Pepper Burruss, Packers head athletic trainer and NFL Head, Neck and Spine Committee member, Kurt Fielding, Packers assistant athletic trainer, Red Batty, Packers equipment manager and Dr. Mark Gardon, board certified neurosurgeon and consultant to the NFL all attended and spoke at the forum.

“We’re glad to be able to host this event today and help educate our state’s youth football coaches,” said Burruss. “Safety is not optional, especially when it comes to our youth athletes, and we are working to make the game safer through forums like this.”

The NFL Head, Neck and Spine Committee, comprised of leading medical experts, advises the NFL and NFL clubs on best practices for prevention, management, and research on concussions and other head, neck and spine injuries.

The NFL takes a proactive approach in addressing player health and safety and advancing science to help athletes of all ages in all sports. To learn more about the league’s efforts to promote health and safety at all playing levels, www.nflevolution.com/.
