Kristin Olliney and Isabella

"She’s come really far … but she has a long journey ahead of her, but we’ll take that together, too."

In 2010, Kristin Olliney and her daughter Isabella's lives were changed forever when Isabella came down with sudden acute encephalitis, which caused brain damage. Despite the number of challenges they face every day, Isabella and her mother face them head on and work on her rehabilitation every day.

Play Smart: Understanding Sports Concussion

A concussion is a mild brain injury caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body that causes the brain to move rapidly inside the skull. Every year, approximately 60,000 high school athletes experience concussions that are sports-related.

To help address and prevent sports concussions in young people, BIA-MA has produced an award-winning video for parents, coaches and student athletes. Play Smart: Understanding Sports Concussion includes two 12-minute segments. One segment is specifically designed for coaches and parents while the other segment caters to student athletes. The videos include facts about sports concussions, personal testimonies of student and professional athletes and expert advice. Click on the image below to preview a short clip of the video!
