Arizona has introduced a first-of-its-kind concussion education program that requires all student-athletes to attend a program and pass a test before being cleared to play interscholastic sports. The 50-minute program uses videos to walk students through symptoms of a concussion, encourages them to report all suspected concussions, and explains what to do if they have a concussion.
