Sport Concussion Library

An official launch of the Sport Concussion Library will occur on December 8th, 2011.

Dr. Paul Echlin states, “Our young athletes need access to multi-modal education tools such as the e-modules, a selection of video documentaries, and testimonials from their peers. All of these resources are now available on this website so that the athletes, the parents, and the coaches can learn the symptoms and treatments to avoid long-term brain injury.

He continues, “Concussion is a serious brain injury that can cause short and long term disability among our athletes. We can no longer turn our collective heads when a concussion occurs. There is now a strong grass roots need for an up-to-date, and accurate central source of information on this issue.”
