“The partnership with Dignity Health is significant, both from the perspective of community involvement and support, and their work in providing safety for children who have suffered concussions during training or game play,” said Chris Brown, executive director of Phoenix Rising FC Youth Soccer. “We are excited to partner with Dignity Health in a number of initiatives that provide a higher quality of care for the players in our organization.”
“When children embrace human kindness early on, it has a positive effect on the health of our communities,” said Mark Viden, vice president of brand marketing for Dignity Health. “We are proud to support Phoenix Rising Football Club Youth Soccer players. The organization provides important development, both physically and mentally, to Arizona youth.”
“Through our partnership with Phoenix Rising FC Youth Soccer, Dignity Health will extend its commitment to preventing and identifying concussions among adolescents and youth,” said Dr. Javier Cárdenas, a neurologist at Barrow Neurological Institute. “Our nationally renowned concussion education tools help athletes and their families understand the danger of concussions and offer insight on how to prevent these serious injuries in youth sports.”
