Concussion Prevention at Barrow
The national spotlight is on Arizona as we gear up for Super Bowl XLIX. But did you know that Arizona is leading the nation in concussion prevention, education, and treatment? The Barrow Concussion and Brain Injury Center at Barrow Neurological Institute is believed to be the nation’s most comprehensive concussion prevention, treatment and education program. Under the direction of Javier Cárdenas, MD, and with the generous support of Barrow Neurological Foundation donors, the center has established many of the country’s first-of-its-kind concussion programs, including baseline concussion testing, concussion research, Brainbook, Barrow Brain Ball, Barrow Concussion Network and domestic violence identification.
