About YSCP

The awareness program is a collaboration between primary care providers and specialists and has established standardized guidelines for concussion management for all health care providers across the Peterborough Family Health Team.

The Youth Sports Concussion Awareness Program was created in partnership with physiatrist, Dr. Derek Krete. Although there is no government support for this initiative, this is made possible through the fundraising efforts of the Greater Peterborough Health Services Foundation, Your Family Health Team Foundation.
