The Fall Season officially arrived September 23rd! As everyone enjoys this dynamic change of colors, expectations are many – daily routines are back. The sun rises just a little bit later and sets just a little bit earlier. The telltale chill in the air reminds us that a great Winter is right around the corner. School is underway and so is the excitement of Fall sports. With Fall activities, we cannot lose sight of the importance of keeping our brains healthy. If healthy, our brains will energetically guide us through the season's wonderful activities. One Hit Away is looking forward to this powerful time of change and stands ready to educate, support, and provide resources to those suffering from sports-related brain injuries. A healthy brain makes it possible to enjoy the simplest blessings of life.  OneHitAway thanks you for your time and generosity, and we most certainly wish you health and happiness during this Fall season.

From Two Members of OneHitAway!
"The Sender"  Co-Authored by Dr. Kevin Elko who is a member of OneHitAway's Advisory Council. 

A Powerful Story About When Right Words Make All the Difference. This special read is based on the life-changing true story of Indianapolis Colts Head Coach, Chuck Pagano’s fight with cancer. The Sender blends creative storytelling and inspiration to communicate a powerful message of endurance, strength, and serving others.  The Journey of Brain Healing requires Discipline, Strength and a Goals-Based Process. I say to myself I will do this....
A Must Read for Everyone!!  
  "Incurable Me" by K.P. Stoller, MD who is a member of OneHitAway's Advisory Council.

In  Incurable Me , a maverick physician brings transparency to some of medicine’s most closely guarded secrets. As he establishes a link between commerce and medical research, K. P. Stoller also explains how to treat some of the most worrisome diseases and conditions afflicting humans today—including Lyme disease, brain trauma, dementia, and autism.   Dr. Stoller takes his provocative arguments a step further.  Written in an accessible style that is thoroughly appropriate for a lay audience,  Incurable Me  is a must-read for anyone interested in the state of modern medicine.
Another MUST Read For All
California Governor Jerry Brown
Unfortunately  Vetoes Bill AB 2182
AB 2182 , vetoed by the Governor, would have established a four-year pilot program in three school districts in Northern California to conduct baseline and post-injury neurocognitive testing for student athletes.  
In recent years, growing concerns over sports-related concussions have led to increased attention and legislation on head injuries among young athletes,” stated Assemblymember Mullin. “To further address this issue, we need more research and data to improve the way we identify, report, and treat head injuries in student athletes. This data is also needed to provide parents with information they can use when deciding whether or not to allow their children to participate in sports."
