CDC HEADS UP
SAFE BRAIN. STRONGER FUTURE.
This site contains valuable information on concussions and other serious brain injury.
A concussion is a type of brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works. It is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head. Even what seems to be a mild bump to the head can be serious.
Children and adolescents are among those at greatest risk for a concussion and the risk is greatest during physical education (PE) class, recess, or school based sports activities. Concussions can happen at any time a students head comes into contact with a hard object. Recognizing and responding appropriately to the concussion can prevent further injury and help with recovery.
