Institute of Medicine calls for U.S. concussion-tracking system

The Associated Press reported the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council on Wednesday called for a national system to track sports-related concussions.

Wednesday's report cited numbers that said 250,000 people at ages 19 and younger were treated in emergency rooms for sports-related brain injuries in 2009, up from 150,000 in 2001. However, there is no data for often youth children suffer concussions in community or school sports.
