As a registered nurse and NFL wife, Sandra Merriweather has seen the devastating results of concussions.

In her new book, A Football Wife’s Research Study for the Love of the Games, she offers an in-depth review of her extensive research on the signs and symptoms of concussive head injuries.

It shares the results of a research study designed to review the areas of concussions and head injuries from a different angle and to shed light on the areas that need improvement.

Merriweather hopes the book will provide readers with the most up-to-date facts and information to ensure success and prevention.

“My goal is for readers to understand how concussions occur and learn to be able to observe changes in conditions,” Merriweather says. “Mostly I want them to learn how to save lives.”

A Football Wife’s Research Study for the Love of the Games offers readers a unique view into the world of health and contact sports.
