Well over 10 TV cameras and 15 newspaper and radio stations were present to see the new platform launched. Along with the media were over 75 visitors to find out what will do for the grassroot athelete. They were entertained by Michael Landsberg, host of OTR on TSN.

“The site is like a tool box with a bunch of very important tools for coaches, parents and players can use to understand the cause, effect and consequences of concussions.” Goulet explains. “This site will evolve in to the one stop shop for everything to do with concussions.”
