The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed Wednesday, September 29, as Concussion Awareness Day in the province.
Concussions are a serious public health issue. Awareness on this issue can make a difference by helping individuals and communities understand how to prevent, recognize, and manage concussions and where to find credible information.
Sask Sport, the Sport Medicine and Science Council of Saskatchewan and the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport have partnered to present A Concussion Story: Lessons for Concussion Management.
The 60-minute webinar on concussion management and return to play will feature an expert sport medicine panel and a former elite athlete who will share her story about dealing with concussion and the related challenges. The webinar is geared toward athletes, coaches, parents and sports medicine practitioners.
