“Groundbreaking” concussion course from UCalgary aims to educate public and experts

February 10, 2019

CBC reports that the University of Calgary has developed a free online course to educate the public on sports concussions. “We know concussion has a significant health impact and is one of the most common injuries in sport and recreation,” said Kathryn Schneider, an Assistant Professor at the Sport Injury Prevention Research Centre. “It's a groundbreaking course in that there's no other open online courses that have been run in this area at the University of Calgary. It's the first one of its kind.” A UCalgary release adds that the course was developed in consultation with Pierre Frémont from Université Laval’s Department of Medicine. CBC |UCalgary (AB)
