Concussion
 

Each year, hundreds of children and adolescents experience a concussion from playing sports. Many of them may sustain a concussion but it is not properly identified, diagnosed, or treated. Their coach, parent, official, teacher, or healthcare provider may not recognize the signs. Nationally, emergency departments treat an estimated 173,285 sports-related brain injuries each year, yet many children never access proper care.

Mission

 

To improve the health and safety of Kern County athletes by improving the prevention, evaluation, and management of sport-related concussion through collaboration, education, and clinical practice, while continually improving by integrating research and best practices.
