HEADS UP is a series of educational initiatives, developed by CDC, that all have a common goal: Protect kids and teens by raising awareness and informing action to improve prevention, recognition, and response to concussion and other serious brain injuries. Recent HEADS UP initiatives focus on sports programs and schools as key places to share concussion information with coaches, parents, and school professionals. Information provided through HEADS UP helps coaches, parents, and school professionals recognize, respond to, and minimize the risk of concussion or other serious brain injury. Fact sheets provided through HEADS UP can be downloaded and customized with team or school logos.
