ThinkFirst About Concussions raises awareness about sports-related concussions for student athletes and their support groups of coaches, trainers, managers, school administrators, parents and guardians. The program begins with an overview of the signs and symptoms of concussions explained by an athletic trainer. Those who attend the program then hear individuals who have suffered from the complications of concussion-related injuries share their cautionary stories and why head injuries should be taken seriously.
ThinkFirst About Concussions also partners with schools that serve a high percentage of low-income families to provide Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment Cognitive Testing (ImPACT). ImPACT is a widely-used, concussion evaluation system. The test provides tools and services that are medically accepted as the best way to determine when it is safe for a student athlete to return to play. ImPACT is in use by the majority of teams in Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League and the National Football League.
