'Heads Up' on Concussion

Education is a key component to keeping concussions on the sideline. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control, in collaboration with an expert work group, developed free online courses and a “Heads Up” tool kit that provides important information on preventing, recognizing and responding to a concussion for people on the frontline – athletes, parents of athletes and coaches.
