No two concussions are the same. Each one is unique!

Raising Awareness of Sports and Non-Sports Related Concussions

Concussions Matter, Inc. is a non-profit organization started by Jenna Mosenson to help educate coaches, parents and athletes about sports and non sports related concussions. Our mission is to work to get all students a baseline test, not just student athletes, to establish support groups for those suffering from the effects of concussions and to establish support groups for the caregivers.

Jenna will be working in partnership with The Brain Injury Association of New York State (BIANYS) and will serve as a founding member of the Youth Concussion Council for the organization.  Jenna will also share her personal story at BIANYS trainings and will advocate on behalf of students and youth with brain injury.

“The Brain Injury Association of New York State (BIANYS) is proud to support survivors like Jenna who use their experience with brain injury to make a positive impact in the community.  Raising awareness about concussion prevention and treatment aligns with our mission and we are thrilled to work with others on this issue.”

-Eileen Reardon, Executive Director of the Brain Injury Association of New York State.
