Ontario teens report high rate of head injuries

A recent study of Ontario teenagers, published in JAMA and reported in medpageTODAY, suggests that teens self-report fairly high rates of head injuries, most often among boys in grades 7 and 8.  The authors suggest the study supports the need for more prevention initiatives, particularly in sports.  More study needs to be done to find out if there is a relationship to academic performance, substance abuse, and other long-term problems.
