Given What We Know, Ought Parents Allow Kids to Play Collision Sports?

Tragic suicides of retired NFL football players, multi-million dollar lawsuits and the highly rated film Concussion have all garnered recent media attention and raised ethics questions about collision sports and player injury. Should parents allow their children to play football or soccer? Ought there be an informed consent process? Can collision sports be played safer, or are they inherently risky to players’ brains and joints, perhaps unacceptably so? Our guest lecturer, Dr. Steven Miles, Professor Emeritus of Medicine and Bioethics at the University of Minnesota, is a physician-ethicist who studies, thinks and writes about such controversies. Admission is free, and reservations are requested.
