  • When should you head to the ER vs Urgent Care vs Family Doctor/Primary Care Provider?
  • How can the trainers/team support staff help?
    • what conversations should you have with them?
  • What conversations should you have with your primary care doctor if you are playing sports?
  • What about concussions? What are the warning signs/symptoms?
  • What is the path to get back on the field if surgery is warranted?
