Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Concussion Program is on Facebook!
The Mayo Clinic in Arizona has a comprehensive sports concussion program that focuses on protecting the health of concussed athletes through evaluation and education/awareness about prevention. Physicians from 12 sub-specialities of medecine are involved: neurology, neuroradiology, neurosurgery, neuropsycholology, headache medicine, sports medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation, emergency medicine, internal medicine, vestibular medicine, physical therapy, and occupational therapy.
Importantly, the Facebook page is a place where you can get valuable information about concussions, including news stories, and is a place where you discuss your thoughts about the issues raised. While you’re on Facebook, check out Concussion Talk and follow me on Twitter: @concussiontalk
Most of all, DISCUSS. Concussions and all types of brain injury are not going to disappear, but by talking about it we can take some of the mystery away, and it’s the mystery that scares people.
