NFL and CDC Unveil Poster to Educate Young Athletes about Concussions
The NFL and CDC have created a FREE poster to educate young athletes about concussions.
For NFL Players
Beginning during the 2010 season, a poster on concussion in sports will be displayed in every NFL locker room nationwide. The poster, developed for NFL players, is the result of a joint effort between the NFL, NFL Players Association, CDC, Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society, and the NFL Physicians Society and describes the importance of recognizing a concussion, taking time to recover, and not returning to play too soon.
This new poster follows the release of a similar poster for NFL players and stresses the importance of:
recognizing a concussion;
taking time to recover; and
not returning to play too soon.
The NFL and CDC encourage every school and sports league to hang this poster in locker rooms and gymnasiums across the country.
Other organizations providing input in designing the poster for young athletes include 14 national governing bodies of sports and the NFL Players Association.
