Plainsboro, NJ (PRWEB) March 8, 2010
Athletic trainers play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and health of student athletes, a panel of experts stressed at the Athletic Trainers’ Society of New Jersey (ATSNJ) 24th Annual Athletic Training Conference in Plainsboro. While sports are an excellent opportunity for student-athletes to be active and healthy, experts say it is important that measures are in place to ensure they are participating under the safest possible conditions.
Senator Paul A. Sarlo (D-Bergen/Passaic/Essex), recently introduced legislation (S-693) that would require each school district that conducts an interscholastic athletic program employ one or more school athletic trainers. “School sports give our kids an opportunity to be active, healthy, and learn the fundamentals of the game, but proper precautions must be in place to make sure these activities are safe,” says Sarlo, who is also a volunteer coach is his spare time. “This bill is about keeping our student athletes safe and out of harm’s way.”
Sarlo became interested in the issue after hearing about a case in Kentucky where a high school football player collapsed and died as a result of complications from heat stroke after an intense practice. The football coach, who did not have the benefit of an athletic trainer on staff, was charged with criminally negligent homicide and later acquitted. “The case in Kentucky definitely illustrates the problem with the lack of athletic trainers on site during team practices. Having an athletic trainer on-hand reduces the risk, and ensures that injured or ill players have access to immediate medical care if they should need it,” Sarlo says.
Dr. Robb Rehberg, a professor at William Paterson University and ATSNJ Past-President, expressed the ATSNJ’s support for the Senator’s legislation. “The best way to protect a student athlete’s health is by employing the services of an athletic trainer. As health care providers with expertise in the prevention, recognition, and care of athletic injury and illness, athletic trainers play a key role in keeping our student athletes healthy and safe,” said Rehberg, who is also a recent appointee to the New Jersey Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. “Athletic trainers serve as a resource for coaches, parents, and athletes, and have specific training in making return to play decisions and coordinating proper care. In the absence of a physician, athletic trainers are the most qualified personnel in this area, which is why it is important that all schools with athletic programs employ one.”
The panel included several experts, including Dr. Kevin M. Guskiewicz, a leading researcher on concussions from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Thomas Bottiglieri, D.O. a team physician for several Bergen County High Schools, and Charles Gatt, MD. a prominent New Jersey orthopedic surgeon. “Athletic Trainers bridge the gap between coaches and parents in the athletic health care system. They are the eyes and ears of physicians on the sidelines and in the athletic training rooms,” stated Bottiglieri.
“One of the most important things is the athletic trainers know the kids very well. They can help from both a personality stand point and an intellectual stand point, which goes a long way in making some important decisions when it comes to return to play,” said Gatt, who is the Chairman of the Orthopaedic Department of the Medical School, UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson University. In addition to doctor-athletic trainer relationships, Gatt also discussed the value of an athletic trainer when an athlete has chronic injuries. “The athletic trainer is a big help in telling me how athletes are recovering from injuries, and how the initial injuries occur.”
John Bamber the Head Football Coach at Ewing High School in Ewing, NJ, provided a coaches perspective, and discussed how he handles the conflicting emotions about returning an athlete, specifically a talented one, to the game versus leaving them on the bench. Bamber also touched on the pressure parents place on their child to return to play even if the child has an injury.
Niki Popyer, a Marlboro High School girls basketball player, and her mother, Cathy Popyer, illustrated the important role Marlboro’s athletic trainer played in her receiving proper health care. Popyer, who sustained multiple concussions while playing sports, credits the management of her condition by her athletic trainer as what helped most in her return to play. “[My athletic trainer] not only helped me with my physical symptoms, but he also helped me emotionally. When I stopped playing, I was in a bad place and he really helped me through that too.” “I cannot imagine kids playing sports without an athletic trainer on-hand,” said Cathy Popyer.
Ridgewood student-athlete parent, Glenn Jorgensen also described how his children’s injuries affected him and the importance of receiving prompt treatment from an athletic trainer that covers practices and game. “Having an athletic trainer is something that I feel is necessary for the safety of the kids.”

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
Most spouses in North Carolina begin the process of a divorce settlement in the hopes that somewhere down the road they will live a happier life. There is a light at the end of the tunnel (even if it may seem far away), and most are doing everything possible to reach that light, including negotiating for post-divorce support. What happens if, further down that road, one former spouse becomes disabled or passes away, ending the support the other former spouse has been relying on? If the family is not protected by insurance, that road to a happier life could take an unexpected turn for the worse. It is important to negotiate with every aspect of the future in mind, and that includes negotiating for insurance coverage to guarantee coverage should the unexpected happen.
Insurance coverage is an often neglected aspect of life when negotiating during a divorce settlement. Many fail to realize the potential benefits of maintaining insurance coverage post-divorce. There are many types of insurance that can be negotiated for during a divorce settlement, including health insurance, auto insurance, home owners insurance, disability insurance, and life insurance. Of these, health insurance, disability insurance, and life insurance are the most common forms taken into account during a divorce.
North Carolinians will be happy to know that, in most cases, if you have been covered under a former spouses employer-provided health insurance plan, you have the right to continue that coverage for a set period of time for a monthly fee following divorce. This is typically referred to as COBRA. Childrens coverage can also be continued under a qualified medical child support order. However, COBRA can sometimes be expensive. Pay attention to the costs and deadlines associated with COBRA and negotiate wisely to ensure you receive the maximum benefit possible.
Furthermore, depending on the type of life and/or disability insurance your former spouse has, that insurance can be used as a risk management tool and/or a wealth accumulation tool if negotiated for prudently. Both life insurance and disability insurance can be used as a tool to protect any financial obligation your former spouse owes in the event of an unexpected occurrence that would prevent him or her from fulfilling that obligation. This protection could extend to all areas of support, including spousal support, child support, mortgage payments, and many others. To guarantee this protection, negotiate so that you are both the owner and beneficiary of the policies, taking responsibility for paying the premiums to ensure the coverage will be there when it is needed. This means that those premium payments will need to be negotiated for in the support settlement outlined in the Separation Agreement.
Additionally, most permanent life insurance policies can also be used as a wealth accumulation tool during divorce settlement negotiations. Any cash value associated with a permanent life insurance policy or with a business buy/sell agreement that is funded with life and/or disability insurance is fair game when negotiating the divvying up of assets. Be sure to take this potential hidden wealth into consideration and negotiate for terms that put you in control of both the premium payments and the beneficiary designation.
It is best to reevaluate insurance coverage in all areas when going through the process of divorce, taking into account the issues mentioned above. A North Carolina attorney focused on family law issues can help safeguard your future by negotiating for this and other important issues during the divorce settlement.

The United Kingdom (UK) announced a historic change in their policy on abortions for women raped in armed conflict, a move that should have enormous global impact on health care given women in war zones. UK government spokesperson, Baroness Northover, speaking in the House of Lords on January 9, 2013, acknowledged that girls and women raped in armed conflict have absolute legal rights to comprehensive medical care, including abortions when medically necessary, under common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions.
Global Justice Center President Janet Benshoof states, We applaud the UK for its global leadership on calling an end to the unjust and illegal denial of abortions for women raped and tortured in armed conflict.
The UK now joins with Norway in calling to ensure abortions are part of medical treatment for women raped in war, and for calling on the US to lift the abortion restrictions placed on all US humanitarian aid funds. [Norway was the first country to affirm that nondiscriminatory medical care under the Geneva Conventions must include abortions, and in 2010 called upon the US government to lift its abortion ban on aid for women raped in war as a matter of compliance with the Geneva Conventions.
Baroness Northovers statement laid out several ways the UK government would protect the medical care rights of women victims of war rape:
