Woodbury High School, in partnership with Summit Orthopedics, is pleased to offer an innovative concussion management program called Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing (ImPACTTM) for all participating student-athletes.
Baseline concussion testing is available for all Woodbury High School student-athletes! Participation is completely optional, free, and does not in any way effect team selection or participation at Woodbury High School. Testing dates and times will be coordinated with coaches to reserved computer lab time at WHS prior to the start of the season. For more information, please refer to the parental letter and consent form below or www.impacttest.com. Additional concussion information can be found on the MSHSL or CDC web site.
Please let me know if you have any questions or wish to take the ImPACT test and do not have access to a computer.
