About Think First Foundation
The Think First Foundation (TFF) is a non-profit, voluntary organization dedicated to preventing brain and spinal cord injuries through education of individuals, community leaders, and creators of public policy. Established in 1986, TFF was founded by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons. Consisting of more than 200 chapters, TFF produces educational materials including a catalog entitled “1997 Catalog, Think First,” the “Think First Fact Sheet,” and brochures. The foundation conducts high school presentations, develops local programs engaging in public policy initiatives, supports public and community awareness projects, and has the “Think First For Kids” program which is implemented in elementary schools by local teachers. TFF includes more than 200 active local programs throughout the United States, Chile, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. Each program includes sponsoring licensed physician and program coordinator who participate in the Think First high school program. More than five million students have attended Think First program presentations.
