NOCSAE, CDC Team Up to Give "Heads Up to Parents" About Concussions in Youth Sports
Date:7/20/2011

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., July 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are teaming up to launch "Heads Up to Parents," a new educational initiative designed specifically to provide parents with the facts about how to protect, prevent and respond to youth and high school athlete concussions. The partnership, made possible by a grant from NOCSAE to the CDC Foundation, builds on the CDC's successful "Heads Up" initiative featuring free tools for coaches, athletes, parents and healthcare professionals that provide important information on preventing, recognizing and responding to a concussion.  

NOCSAE is an independent and nonprofit standard-setting body with the sole mission of enhancing athletic safety through scientific research and the creation of performance standards for protective equipment.

"Forty-five million kids and teens participate in organized youth sports each year. Parents, who know their young athletes best, are on the front line to identify concussion risks, injuries and help prevent long-term health problems," said Mike Oliver, executive director of NOCSAE. "Working with the CDC, we will help make sure parents get the facts they need quickly and easily to better protect athletes."

The CDC estimates approximately 1.6 to 3.8 million sports- and recreation-related concussions occur each year in the United States, and children and teens are at highest risk.

"The CDC is working on a series of projects focused on preventing and reducing the long-term impact of sports-related head injuries. Public-private partnerships, such as this one supported by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment, are helping the CDC get important, science-based messages out to parents, athletes, coaches and partners," said Charles Stokes, president and CEO of the CDC Foundation. "We are proud to be able
