Enrolled Participants

The CARE Consortium follows male and female NCAA student athletes and military service cadets from 30 institutions across the United States for a multi-year period. Participants undergo a comprehensive preseason evaluation for concussion and are monitored in the event of an injury. A subset of participants are engaged in more advanced studies which include blood biospecimen collection, neuroimaging and head impact measurement.


Current and former participants of the CARE study are encouraged to contact the individual identified on their study Informed Consent Statement. All other questions regarding participation may be directed to the CARE Administrative and Operations Core.
