Specializing in knowledge translation and innovative engagement strategies on concussions, Concussion Central exists to help people navigate living through concussion, working to ensure better outcomes for concussion patients as they recover or adapt to life with a concussion.
In 2017, our founder sustained a concussion in an automobile collision. She still suffers from symptoms today.
Over the past 4 years, she has learned to live through her concussion and has identified the need for an accessible concussion information hub for those living through concussion, their caregivers, and the medical community. She found that most concussion knowledge is disparately spread across the internet, tucked into corners of academia and medical research. There are very few groups working to create an everyday, simple, and clear conversation about living with concussion, existing and new therapies, and recovery strategies.
We believe that those living through concussions should thrive, regardless of overwhelming symptoms, emotions, and information.
We draw on these four values to guide our work.
We will always look for new ways to build partnerships, reach our stakeholders and ensure that concussion information remains accessible and engaging.
