Gray Matters: Brain Injury in Sports

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) in professional sports has made the headlines this year, but has been problematic for scores. Retired professional soccer player Taylor Twellman and retired WWE wrestler Christopher Nowinski both have first-hand knowledge of the effects of TBI on behavior, mental processes, and careers. At ThinkTaylor, Twellman educates players on recognizing and treating injuries, while Nowinski’s work at the Sports Legacy Institute includes researching TBI in sports and translating results into safety programs. Legendary sportscaster Bob Lobel draws out whether the threat of TBI means new rules, new equipment, or the end of certain professional sports.

Christopher Nowinski will be signing and selling copies of his book, “Head Games: Football’s Concussion Crisis from the NFL to Youth Leagues” at the end of the event.

Thursday, September 27, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
C. Walsh Theatre, Suffolk University
