BGHS Athletic Trainer Interviewed by Channel 6 News
Carl Palma addresses concussion education for coaches
Athletes Saving Athletes
Launched in 2012, Athletes Saving Athletes harnesses the power of peer-to-peer communication and the value of educating student athletes in basic sports safety. Eleven Beech Grove student athletes were recently selected to attend the program, which was sponsored by Community Health Network Sports Medicine. The training was held Saturday, March 14, at Decatur Central High School from noon - 5:00 p.m.
Taught exclusively by certified athletic trainers, Athletes Saving Athletes is a unique educational program that teaches recognition and understanding of signs and symptoms of sports related injuries and chronic medical conditions. It originated in Caifornia as part of a mission of Advocates for Injured Athletes to help put an athletic trainer on every sideline. In 2014, Community Health Network was the first network outside of California to conduct the program.
The curriculum covers concussion, head and neck injuries, heat illness, sudden cardiac arrest, diabetes and asthma, and stresses the importance of notifying a certified athletic trainer, coach or other supervising adult immediately when a teammate is in trouble. In addition to learning to recognize and understand signs and symptoms, program participants learn Compressions-Only CPR and are introduced to the function and purpose of the AED (Automated External Defibrillator).
The curriculum includes the compelling video stories of the program’s three Founding ASA Ambassadors: Tommy Mallon, a lacrosse player who received a catastrophic head and neck injury; nationally ranked tennis player Brittan Sutphin, who suffered sudden cardiac arrest while swimming; and Will James, a football player who nearly died due to exertional heat stroke. In addition, the students in attendance met Cody Lehe, a Second Impact Syndrome survivor, and learned his story regarding continuing to play while suffering from a concussion.
The motto of the ASA™ program is: “What you know may save someone you know.” Program graduates become ASA™ Ambassadors, committed to sharing the value of learning sports safety education and using that knowledge on and off the playing field. BGHS Athletic Trainer, Carl Palma, participated in the program with our Beech Grove students.

Cameron Cardenas, Kody Conaway, Ben Davids, Brian Davids, Kyli Luna, Abigail Myers, Deanna Smith, Danielle Sohn, Brenton Strahla, Linnea Tuterow, and Seth Wilson.
