Concussions 101 – a Primer for Kids and Parents

Concussion talk is everywhere. How do we diagnose a concussion? How do we treat them? How do we build greater awareness?

How are we to navigate through the overwhelming body of research on the topic?

Fortunately, a doctor-professor from Toronto has sought to simplify the medical world’s best evidence on concussions.

Dr. Mike Evans works with a creative team to build awareness of different health topics in a current and easy-to-understand white board format. It’s a self-proclaimed “med school for the public on YouTube.”

To say his work is clever would be an understatement.

Whether you’re a parent, teacher, coach, or athlete, be sure to watch Dr. Mike’s presentation on concussions:
