ThinkFirst, a National Brain & Spinal Cord Injury Prevention Program developed by America's neurosurgeons, reminds young people that you can have a fun and exciting life - and you can do it without hurting yourself, if you ThinkFirst and use your mind to protect your body. Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine is proud to support this important program in Indiana.
ThinkFirst is presented free in junior and senior high schools across the country and ThinkFirst for Kids is fully integrated into the curriculum for elementary students. Each grade (1-3) has an age-appropriate curriculum and an array of classroom activities designed to be integrated into various subjects, such as mathematics and science.
The complete program educates students about activities that place them at risk of a brain or spinal cord injury and consists of a 12-minute animated video, five individual safety modules, five posters and five comic strips depicting "Street Smart," an animated character who practices safe behavior. Modules address individual safety areas, including vehicular safety, water safety, bicycle safety, violence and sports and recreational safety. Click here to learn more about the ThinkFirst program.
