    Dr. John Neidecker was interviewed by Stephania Bell on her ESPN podcast “Answering the Bell” on the topic "Concussion Management in Combat Sports." The interview was based on the recently published “Concussion Management in Combat Sports: Consensus Statement from the Association of Ringside Physicians” in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, July 2018. 

    He discussed the challenge of managing concussion management in combat sports. “We need to be more stringent in our protocols and what we do compared to what a non-contact sport would do.…The intent of the sport is head contact…Concussion management in combat sports needs to be held to a higher standard.”
