CCHS Athletes Learn Concussion Education From Professional Boxer
Posted november 15, 2016
Colonie Central High School hosted a concussion education and awareness presentation featuring Professional Boxer, Ray Ciancaglini, of The Second Impact.
The presentation focused on the importance of properly reporting any symptoms of a brain injury/concussion to your athletic trainer, coach, and/or other appropriate medical personnel and following the appropriate management recommendations, including a progressive return-to-play and return-to-learn protocols once the symptoms have been resolved. Approximately 200 athletes attended the presentation.
Ciancaglini also presented the student body with a large boxing glove with the name NIKO on it. All the athletes signed the glove to be sent to Niko Dinovo, who is recovering for serious burns he received in an automobile accident in October.
