Taking Care of Us
Getting the Right Information at the Right Time.
You are the key to your health. We believe that having access to the right information at the right time can empower you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage your health.
The Adolescent Complex Concussion Clinic (AC3) was created in 2012 when we recognized that a sizable number of teens struggle with persistent post-concussion symptoms without having a dedicated team to support their recovery. Our team decided to take on the challenge with an interdisciplinary approach to managing complex health issues and the AC3 outpatient program was born. We are located within the GF Strong Rehabilitation Center. Our team provides education, self-management support, and comprehensive care to teenagers living with persistent symptoms of concussion in British Columbia and the Yukon in Canada.
