MIND MATTERS CHALLENGE
The NCAA and the U.S. Department of Defense are sponsoring this landmark initiative to enhance the safety of student-athletes and service members. The broader $30 million NCAA-DOD Grand Alliance also includes the most comprehensive study of concussion and head impact exposure ever conducted.
The Mind Matters Challenge is broken down to focus on two important areas related to concussion: Changing Attitudes about Concussions in Young and Emerging Adults (a research challenge); and Educational Programs Targeting Young and Emerging Adults (an educational programs challenge).
