Michigan launches sports concussion education website

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- A new website is now live for parents, coaches and athletes to visit to learn about concussions.  The Michigan Department of Community Health has launched the site, Michigan.gov/SportsConcusssions as part of new laws requiring all youth coaches to be trained to recognize the signs of the dangerous head injuries.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there are over 173-thousand kids and teens who suffer concussions from sports and other recreational activities every year.  Football and girls' soccer have the highest prevalence of concussions.
