Concussion Legacy Foundation University of Toronto (CLF UofT) is a concussion education program for students and athletes. We are a university chapter of the Concussion Legacy Foundation Canada, which was founded to advance the study, treatment, and prevention of the effects of brain trauma in athletes and other at-risk groups.
CLF UofT has three main actions: community presentations, research engagement, and awareness events.
One to three presenter(s) educate student-athletes about the dangers of head injuries through presentations using an evidence-based bystander intervention model. The goal is to empower student-athletes with the knowledge they need to take concussions seriously and foster a safer concussion culture.
The research engagement team looks into the latest science on concussions and shares it via multiple methods, such as a podcast, and Instagram.
The awareness events hosted by CLF UofT focus on promoting safe concussion culture and the latest research to the UofT community.
