The program provides injury prevention, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation, as well as implements the ImPACT program, a computerized neurocognitive assessment tool for treating concussions. Our two full-time certified athletic trainers also serve as first responders for the SHC community and provide medical care, education and information on many non-sports-related issues as well as all sports injuries.
