The 5th Annual Symposium on Black Women's Health: Reaching Out...Changing Lives

Moravian College Athletic Training / Sports Medicine
Coaches Concussion Education Program

Coaches,

We are all aware of the inherit risks involved with participating in physical activity and athletics. We know that no matter how cautious we are injuries will happen. The goal of the Athletic Training / Sports Medicine staff is to try to prevent injuries and if and when they occur prevent further injury. To be successful in this endeavor we need the help of the coaching staff.

A way that we can work together towards this goal is through education. One of the potential injuries that can occur through physical activity is a concussion. To help educate the coaching staff on this topic we have put together materials concerning the prevention, recognition, and treatment of concussions. Please go through the attached material and complete the questionnaire at the end. If during the process you have any questions please let me know. All coaches are required to complete this process.

Please click on the first link below to start the program.
