Concussions Part 1: Head Injuries and CTE In Pro Athletes

The play at all costs mentality in sports has created an epidemic of concussions that in some cases carries the ultimate price.

Concussion, from the Latin concutere ("to shake violently") or the Latin concussus ("action of striking together") is the most common type of traumatic brain injury.

In this episode of the Massachusetts School of Law's Educational Forum professor Holly Vietzke talks with The Sports legacy Institute's Co-Founders Chris Nowinski and Dr. Robert Cantu as well as former professional athletes, including Mick Foley, Jay Fiedler, and Kyle Turely and their wivews about their deeply personal experiences with brain injury and the evolution of treatment and awareness.

The Massachusetts School of Law also presents information on important current affairs to the general public in television and radio broadcasts, an intellectual journal, conferences, author appearances, blogs and books.
