Dr. Kaufman Leads Concussion Research and Takes it to the Field
Dr. David Kaufman was at one home Michigan State Football game in 2010 and has seen his role grow from all home games in 2011 to every game since 2012. His presence on the field was recently highlighted in an article published in the NY Times by Joanne C. Gerstner. "I have seen many types of concussions, mild traumatic brain injuries, in many individuals over the years, but you cannot match the wide spectrums you will get until you are on the front line," Kaufman, the chairman of Michigan State University’s Department of Neurology, said in a telephone interview.
