What actions during a hockey game are more likely to lead a player to suffer a concussion?
What effect does a concussion have on a child’s ability to learn in school?

“The biggest question that we’ve been asked by parents is ‘Is it safe for my child to go out and play tonight?’ And quite frankly, we couldn’t answer that. So we needed to get a program put in place,” said Dr. Wayne Hildahl, chief executive officer of Pan Am Clinic.
