"Concussion: Answers in the Blood?"
"Concussion: Answers in the Blood?"

There’s a lot more awareness of sports-related concussions lately, but still no reliable physical test of when an athlete has recovered enough to return to play. A couple of researchers at the University of Montana are working on a promising blood test for concussion recovery. Their story, and those of the Montana athletes and trainers who help them, airs on MontanaPBS Tuesday in a film called “Concussion: Answers In The Blood?” Eric Whitney spoke with the film's producer, John Twiggs.

John Twiggs is a producer at MontanaPBS.
