DIGNITY HEALTH CONCUSSION NETWORK
Concussions. They’re all over the news, and even in movies. You’ve probably heard that having too many, or even one serious one, can cause problems later in life. What you may not know is how to reduce the risk of concussion, what to do immediately after a concussion, and what can be done in the long term to speed recovery. The Dignity Health Concussion Network can help you on all three of these fronts. Our goal is to provide you access to quality information from our medical professionals, as well as resources and learning tools that can help people from all walks of life avoid concussion or respond correctly and quickly to a concussion. Use the links above to find concussion information tailored to athletes, parents, coaches, medical professionals, and the general public.
