Omnibus Lecture Series: Dr. Bennet Omalu

Apr 4, 2017
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Description

As detailed in the 2015 award-winning film Concussion, Dr. Bennet Omalu’s career breakthrough in becoming the first doctor to discover and identify chronic brain damage as a significant factor in the deaths of certain professional athletes wasn’t a smooth venture. Faced with ridicule and dismissal by the NFL, his peers, and the sports industry as a whole, Omalu has become a symbol of truth in the pursuit of doing what’s best for people and their health.
