Retweet to ReThink

RTtoReThink logoConcussion is a serious injury and our success in treating and educating people is based on working with individuals like you.

We are launching an awareness initiative called Retweet to ReThink using the hashtag #RTtoReThink. This campaign will help us educate other patients and families about concussion by sharing interesting facts on social media.rt to rethink
