Center of Disease Control HEADS UP Initiative
The Centre of Disease Control (CDC) has developed a program initiative to help
educate and bring awareness about concussion at all levels of sports and play called HEADS UP. It has a huge selection of resources available online for parents, coaches and athletes, including videos and printable resources. It is a must visit website for people interested in learning about concussions or anyone who has sustained a concussion and would like to learn more about the condition and how to deal with it.
Concussion Awareness Training Tool
The Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT) was developed to provide online concussion toolkits for professionals, parents,
players, coaches and even teachers to help with education and awareness of
concussions. It provides learning resources and videos geared towards different learning styles and learner characteristics.
