“Our Sports Concussion Program stresses early recognition and prevention. Educating coaches, athletes and other health professionals about the signs and symptoms of concussions is a central role in our care. We teach athletes how to play safer and encourage proper safety precautions, such as making sure helmets fit right, which may dramatically reduce head injury.”
