MCLA Students Seeking Community Input on Concussion Survey
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The marketing research students in professor Nancy Ovitsky's course at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts are looking for feedback on concussions in youth sports.
Ovitsky, who also is director of the college's Professional MBA Program, said there is no client for this survey, but rather it was generated by student-athletes wondering how people are reacting to recent research on the frequency and effect of concussions in youth sports.
"The survey data is used as the basis for their summary and statistical analysis for their final term project," she said.
The survey was developed using SurveyMonkey
and the students say "input will help us understand how this issue may impact the future of participation in youth sports."
Community members are being asked to participate in the survey. The participation in anonymous and no information associated with responses will be released publicly. Participants must be age 18 to take the survey.
