CDC Funding Announcement:

The purpose of this research is to either (a) develop and pilot test a new intervention OR (b) rigorously evaluate an existing intervention that targets young athletes participating in sports programs. Interventions should be social and behavioral in nature and can represent either primary prevention or secondary prevention of sports-related concussion. Primary prevention interventions aim to prevent sports-related concussions before they occur, while secondary prevention interventions aim to reduce the impact of concussions that have already occurred. Information gleaned from this research can inform mechanisms for change in the culture of youth sports and support multi-stakeholder approaches to promoting a positive (preventive) culture of sport to mitigate negative norms, beliefs, mores, and policies that may increase risks of concussion among young athletes.
