Upcoming report: Do concussions education programs make a difference?

With a growing number of professional athletes bringing to light the long term consequences of concussions, attention has turned to preventing injury from concussion early—starting in school-age children—and throughout an athlete’s career.

Many schools and athletic associations now offer concussions education programs for parents so they can know what to do if their child suffers a concussion. Have these programs made an impact? We asked.

The results of this National Poll on Children’s Health will be published next week and you can sign up for our mailing list to get the report sent straight to your inbox.
