Nation’s Leading Pediatric Hospital partners with TeachAids
One in every five high school athletes will sustain a concussion throughout the course of their sports career. With such an alarming statistic, it’s important that leading hospitals and medical institutions across the country prioritize this issue.
We are pleased to announce that the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford is collaborating with TeachAids to develop CrashCourse, a revolutionary virtual-reality-based concussion education program. With years of extensive research by medical professionals, athletes, and sports organizations, and support from the Taube Stanford Concussion Collaborative, CrashCourse aims to be one of the most comprehensive, engaging, and accurate resources on concussion and sports-related brain injuries.
In addition to featuring the CrashCourse education suite on their website, the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital has also listed TeachAids as one of their core Concussion Resources. In addition, the hospital has developed the Stanford Children’s Health Concussion program, with a multidisciplinary team of physicians in Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Neurosurgery to best support young athletes return to regular play after a sports-related brain injury.
The Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford is affiliated with Stanford Children’s Health, one of the few healthcare systems in the country that is exclusively dedicated to pediatric and obstetric care.
