Governor Pat Quinn just signed a new law with strict requirements for student athletes.
Any child who suffers a concussion will not be able to return to play or practice, until they're evaluated and receive clearance from a doctor.
This Thursday, the Children's Hospital of Illinois and ProEx Sports Medicine are hosting a concussion discussion.
You can take part in the event this Thursday, August 4th from 6:30 to 8pm at Illinois Central College in East Peoria in room 212-C.
