Our student-athletes are an important part of our community.Keeping them safe, and caring for their injuries, is a big part of what we do.

We are focused on educating our community coaches on the prevention and initial treatment of sports-related injuries through our Coaches Clinics. We tailor these for each athletic season and focus on:

  • Techniques to prevent injuries through proper stretching and conditioning
  • Signs and symptoms of a concussion (traumatic brain injury or TBI)
  • Common sport-specific injuries including initial treatment and recommendations on follow-up care
  • Hydration and nutrition recommendations

  • A medical director for Harford County Public Schools
  • Supervising physicians for athletic trainers

  • Supervision of concussion baseline testing and return to play protocol
