JLME Update
Recently we went to press with our fall issue and its supplement! We are proud to publish on such timely topics: sports-related head injuries and next generation sequencing. Click here to view these issues on our website as they are available for free, so please share with your colleagues and anyone else who might be interested in learning more about David Orentlicher’s “Concussions and Sports” or Kaufman, Curnutte, McGuire’s “Clinical Integration of Next Generation Sequencing: A Policy Analysis”.

Here’s some info about our fall issues: “Concussions and Sports” addresses implementation and enforcement of concussion laws; helmet technology; the ethical, physical, and personal implications of brain injuries; and policies to engage young athletes, parents, and coaches in informed decision making, among other related concerns and considerations. Orentlicher and his co-authors discuss the impact that the sport of American football has on American culture—and how that impact is costing its players, young and old, their well-being and physical health.

Margaret Curnutte, David Kaufman, and Amy McGuire discuss much-needed ways to approach the evolving issue of NGS. Though great clinical potential for NGS exists, issues such as reimbursement, variability in analysis, and privacy concerns affect whether NGS can be routinely used in clinical settings.  The papers in this supplement address federal oversight, coverage and reimbursement, regulatory concerns, and case law related to NGS and whole genome sequencing.  

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on our fall issues! Thanks for reading.
