Concussion Awareness Certificate
Concussions are an incredibly common form of brain injury, one that can happen to almost anyone who receives a traumatic head injury, regardless of age, health or gender.
Everyone, including parents, teachers, coaches and those engaged in physical activity, should be aware of the signs, symptoms and dangers presented by concussions.
Learning more about what a concussion is and how it can be treated can go a long way to keeping you, your family and those in your care as safe as possible, even if a head injury occurs.
