CJSM Podcast with Kim Barber Foss and Greg Myer

We’re excited to ring in 2020 (and our 30th year of the journal) with both the publication of our January issue and a podcast with two special guests:  Kim Barber Foss MS, ATC and Greg Myer PhD from Cincinnati Children’s hospital, the lead and senior author on a study published in our November 2019 issue, Relative Head Impact Exposure and Brain White Matter Alterations After a Single Season of Competitive Football.

Kim and Greg are prolific researchers and have published widely. For instance, Kim published one of the seminal papers on youth sports concussion over 20 years ago in JAMA: Traumatic Brain Injury in High School Athletes. Do you remember those hoary days of the late 90’s, a prelapsarian world before iTunes and Twitter????  And Greg has published widely on subjects from ACL injury to concussion.  He has been a frequent contributor to CJSM and a major force in advancing evidence-based sports medicine.

I hope you get the chance both to read the study and listen to the podcast.  As ever, the podcast conversation can be an illuminating way to understand the author’s interpretation of their own work — conclusions which can be quite different from those which an individual reader may draw from the same study.  This is most especially true when the underlying subject — brain injury in youth contact sports — is such a controversial one.

As ever, you can find and subscribe to our podcasts on iTunes or at the CJSM website. If you have feedback to give us about the podcasts in general, please take the time to rate CJSM at iTunes.  And if you want to comment on this particular podcast and this particular study, please do so on this blog’s moderated comment section.

Enjoy the January 2020 issue and Happy New Year!
