March means #MarchMadness but it is also Brain Injury Awareness Month. Jurnee Agbowu suffered a concussion when she collided with another player during a youth basketball league game last April. She blacked out for two seconds, but continued to play, thinking she was fine. During that same game, she suffered a second hit, as well. It was only later that the 16 year old from Xenia realized there may be a problem. She was referred to the sports medicine department at Dayton Children’s where she was treated for her concussion. Her advice for other athletes? “Once you get hit, sit down, even if you think it’s nothing. Take it seriously. It’s not just a headache. Listen to your body and sit.” Learn more about Jurnee’s road to recovering from her concussion. http://www.childrensdayton.org/cms/media_releases/concussion_Jurnee/index.html
