Dick's Sporting Goods Offers Free Concussion Testing for U.S. Schools

This morning Drew Brees was on the Dan Patrick show to promote a new initiative from Dick's Sporting Goods. The initiative called PACE - Protecting Athletes through Concussion Education - is offering free ImPact testing and software for middle schools and high schools in the United States.

PACE ImPact testing provides baseline information that can be used to determine if a student-athlete has suffered a concussion, the severity of a concussion, and when it is safe for a student-athlete to return to the field or court of play.

Applications for Education
The PACE initiative could be a very valuable resource for schools that cannot find it in their budgets to offer in-house baseline concussion tests.
