On August 24, 2017 we welcomed Hope University athletes to have a concussion screening. It was a great experience to be able to pre-screen and give a real baseline of health for many of them being freshmen.
52 athletes were screened, of that 71.2% were identified as predisposed to a concussion and only 15% were not. What does that mean for these athletes? It means they have a true baseline of health regarding susceptibility to concussions.
What a great experience to be able to reach out to our own community to help these passionate athletes understand what they body is doing and to give them the opportunity to take control and mitigate damages from concussions.
