This morning Drew Brees was on the Dan Patrick show to promote a new initiative from Dick’s Sporting Goods. The initiative called PACE – Protecting Athletes through Concussion Education – is offering free ImPact testing and software for middle schools and high schools in the United States.
PACE ImPact testing provides baseline information that can be used to determine if a student-athlete has suffered a concussion, the severity of a concussion, and when it is safe for a student-athlete to return to the field or court of play.
Applications for Education
The PACE initiative could be a very valuable resource for schools that cannot find it in their budgets to offer in-house baseline concussion tests.
