The Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act establishes the minimum for what should be done when a young athlete suffers a concussion. Care can — and should — go beyond this legal minimum. Though the Concussion Awareness Act affects parents, coaches, and adults working with children in pay-for-play activities, these adults may lack your level of knowledge and awareness. Typically they will look to a licensed health care professional as the expert. It’s vital to educate yourself so you're ready to educate all involved in order to protect our youth.
