NET Honored for Concussion Website
NET (netNebraska.org) and the Nebraska Concussion Coalition took top honors for the website “Concussion Recognition and Management” in the regional CINDY (Cinema in Industry) competition.
The website modules were created for Nebraska licensed health care professionals as a comprehensive overview and guide for best practices in concussion recognition and management to help ensure that every child sustaining a concussion in Nebraska is managed according to current best practices. Visit dhhs.ne.gov/concussionmanage to learn more.
The website was produced by NET for the Nebraska Concussion Coalition. The coalition, which is comprised of representatives from key government agencies, healthcare providers, club sport programs, educators and non-profit agencies, is taking the lead in implementing action-oriented steps to improve concussion awareness and change the culture of concussion management at play, school and home. NET professionals who worked on the project include Chet Kincaid, Jenni Johnson, Alex Epperson, Patrick Bate, David Barry, Steve Exon, John Beck, Jim Lenertz, Werner Althaus and Laura Williams.
The first-place award was given in recognition of the new website’s impact in the medical and professional audience category for region seven (North Central U.S.) CINDY competitions.
NET operates the statewide public service network which includes NET Television, NET Radio, NET Learning Services and NET Technology Services. For more information about NET, Nebraska’s PBS and NPR stations, visit netNebraska.org.
