Just A Minute with Anne DeMartini


– I’m Anne DeMartini, I’m
an Associate Professor of Sport Management here at Flagler. (gentle music) I am currently working
on legal consciousness, which is a socio-legal theory,
so it combines sociology and law, and we’re applying
it to concussion management in girls youth soccer. When you just look at
the straight-up numbers about how prevalent concussions really are in girls youth and girls
high-school soccer, I think a lot of people assume that it’s only a American football or rugby problem, but it’s definitely something
that we need to be looking at. What is really important is making sure that we’re looking at
such a public health issue from as many possible angles as we can, and so we are taking it
from the legal angle, but there are so many ways. Part of our jobs is to
conduct research and to think and talk about these
things, and to get excited, and to model for students
the idea that we’re all lifelong learners, and that we all get to investigate stuff that makes us excited that’s related to our discipline.
