Dr. Pam R. Sailors is this week’s featured woman in STEM. Dr. Sailors is the associate dean of MSU’s College of Humanities and Public Affairs, and she has conducted extensive research on the risks and morality of having children play football.
“Kids start playing football as soon as their little necks can support the helmets on top of their heads,” Sailors said. “By the time they are old enough to make the choice to play, a lot of the damage has already been done.”
