To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with 26 leading organizations, developed the new "Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports" tool kit for youth sports coaches, parents, and athletes. The tool kit offers important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion—a type of traumatic brain injury.
