Tom Bartsokas, M.D., Department of Sports Medicine, says, “We are offering high school athletes who participate in contact and collision sports the opportunity to undergo baseline neuropsychological testing. This aspect of sports concussion care provides medical specialists valuable information about a child’s pre-injury brain function so that post-injury treatment may be more individualized and case-specific.” Dr. Bartsokas continues, “This service is designed to target active youngsters in a way that is convenient, accessible and affordable.”
The cost for a sports physical is $25 per student and the cost for ImPACT® baseline concussion testing is $25 per student. The cost for having both services completed is $50 per student. All proceeds will go to the participating schools’ athletic boosters.
