Dr. Hallie Zwibel and Alice Heron-Burke Publish Op-Ed on Return-to-Learn Concussion Protocol

Jan 06, 2016

"A student unable to fruitfully engage in academics isn't really for competitive athletics," write NYIT Center for Sports Medicine Director Hallie Zwibel, D.O. and Senior Director of Counseling and Wellness Alice Heron-Burke in a Newsweek op-ed (subscription required). "Without a strong 'return-to-learn' protocol alongside a 'return-to-play' guideline, decision-making responsibility falls to those most reluctant to keep star athletes sidelined--the students themselves, their coaches, and colleges where athletics is big business."

Heron-Burke and Zwibel helped NYIT establish its return-to-learn protocol and call for the NCAA to do a better job in ensuring that students are able to return to the classroom -- not just the playing field or court.

I really appreciate the value Chinese parents place on education.” In a report of their wide-ranging discussion, President Guiliano shares insights about American and Chinese educational values; the importance for Chinese students of learning English and American culture, when possible; and the need for constant innovation and cooperation.

The article mentions an NYIT alumni dinner held in Shanghai, as well as the opening of a Career Services and Alumni Relations office there, which now serves all alumni based in China. In addition, the report mentions a recent survey showing that among U.S. M.B.A. programs, NYIT graduates have the best salary-to-debt ratio, making it the top M.B.A. for return on investment.

When consumers sell personal devices online, including smart phones and tables, beware, lest they become attractive to hackers. One crucial step is to be sure to log devices out of the cloud.
