Winning Photo Dramatizes Dangers of Sports Concussion

Daniel Newman of Katonah, NY walked away with top honors from Nikon for his powerful photo of a young man receiving a nerve block injection for his debilitating migraines caused by a sports concussion. Out of 14,000 entries, Daniel’s image of his brother Eric won the top prize in Nikon’s “I am Next” contest. But more important, says Daniel, the image enables him to take the message about the dangers of concussions in young athletes to a larger audience.









“The leading scientists and physicians of the American Headache Society and American Migraine Foundation have launched the 36 Million Migraine Campaign. The campaign aims to both raise awareness of the suffering of so many Americans, and raise a dollar for every patient with migraine in the US. This will finally change attitudes toward and the stigma attached to this disorder and those who suffer, as well as raise funding that will rapidly accelerate the pace of research and the development of more effective and better tolerated treatments.”
