Presented by School of Kinesiology

The toolkit addresses gaps in concussion education, lists available resources and provides information about follow-up care, and was the product of a meeting with leadership from both organizations and coaches, staff and parents. It contains educational and procedural information on how to handle a suspected concussion and information on concussion care, management and treatment options. The Michigan High School Athletic Association also contributed expertise. The toolkit was introduced to coaches and administrators during the DPSCD (Detroit Public Schools Community District) Athletic Symposium in August. The district’s responsibility is to keep athletes as safe as possible, said DPSCD program supervisor Anika McEvans, who hopes to share the toolkit and lessons learned with other districts.  The district’s responsibility is to keep athletes as safe as possible, said DPSCD program supervisor Anika McEvans, who hopes to share the toolkit and lessons learned with other districts. “With an incident like concussion, it’s important that we get it right and provide as much information as we possibly can,” she said.
