The national Conference of State Legislatures recently sent out an article featuring Washington State’s Zackery Lystedt Law and the importance of having this law passed in every state. So far several states have passed similar laws to the Lystedt Law, including New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Virginia.
Richard H. Adler, Principal at Adler Giersch PS and Chairman of the Brain Injury Association of Washington (BIA-WA) was quoted in this article on behalf of BIA-WA. “Catastrophic brain injuries in sports are preventable.”
Its BIA-WA’s hope that with additional public awareness of the Lystedt Law to key lawmakers, this law come become nationwide and protecting student athletes from concussions.
