Concussion Legacy Foundation Media Project
The Concussion Legacy Foundation Media Project is the first and only concussion education program for journalists.
The CLF Media Project consists of two parts
SHAPING THE PUBLIC’S UNDERSTANDING
Few public health issues have evolved as rapidly as concussions have over the last decade. No longer do we “rub dirt on it” and return players to the game or laugh when an athlete goes to the wrong sideline.
Unfortunately, while pro sports have adapted, the new guidelines for recognizing and responding to concussion have not reached every level of play. By staying current on concussions and accurately reporting on them when they occur in sporting events, the media educates hard-to-reach coaches, parents, and athletes.
ABOUT THE CLF MEDIA PROJECT
The CLF Media Project recognizes this opportunity to improve public health and provides media professionals with current concepts, tools, and vocabulary to accurately cover concussions, protocols, and return-to-play.
