Important information regarding concussions

The Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) has developed a very thorough and informative section of their website devoted to the recognition, treatment and prevention of concussions. They offer a page devoted to youth sports, as well as one aimed at high-schools.  Among the plethora of free materials available are posters, wallet-cards, checklists, guides for coaches and much more. I’ve had two sons experience concussions while playing sports, and wish we’d had more knowledge back then. The CDC’s “Heads-up” program is a wealth of free and valuable information.
