Use your head, wear a helmet!

Bicycle helmet safety was a focus of BMC’s Trauma Service’s Injury Prevention efforts at the WHDH/BMC Health Fair on June 22nd and 23rd.  Thanks to Boston Health Net and the Boston Public Health Commission’s generous helmet donations, we were able to provide concussion education through an interactive simulation with concussion goggles and properly fit 350 people with new bicycle helmets! Ride Safe, everyone!

Helmets are available year round at BMC’s gift shop in the Menino lobby for $5 dollars.  Please call Lisa Allee, Injury Prevention Coordinator at BMC with any questions 617-414-8007.
