School sports seasons are starting, and this week on Noon Edition, we’ll talk with medical professionals and athletic trainers about how the new law is being implemented.

In 2011, Indiana’s legislature passed a law requiring school sports coaches to inform players of concussion risks and to sideline players who they suspect may have a concussion. School sports seasons are starting, and this week on Noon Edition, we’ll talk with medical professionals and athletic trainers about how the new law is being implemented.

Join us Friday at 12 p.m. for our conversation about the future of schools under Indiana’s voucher program. You can visit this site to be part of our live chat, follow us on Twitter @NoonEdition, or join us on the air by calling in at 812-855-0811 or 1-877-285-WFIU.
