In the world of concussions and head injuries, education means two things:

Community Education

We strive to provide accurate and helpful information about the symptoms and treatment of concussions. What are the signs to look for? What are the best treatment options. We hope to answer many of the questions you may have.

We also plan to hold community workshops to continue our mission of spreading concussion awareness.

Having a child with a concussion can be a very challenging experience.  Maintaining communication with both the medical providers for your child and your child’s school is a critical step in assisting their recovery.

Our school program aims to establish successful concussion protocols in our schools that align parents, school staff and medical professionals.
