Today at noon, join the Dr. Joseph Maroon and John Denny with the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research to learn how its work is helping to diminish the impact of sports-related head injuries.
Established through a
seed grant from the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Foundation makes
research awards for programs that help to address prevention,
diagnosis and treatment of injuries to the brain.
Hall of Fame Coach Chuck Noll played a key role in helping to dramatically increase the understanding of concussions, and pioneered important changes to testing concussions in athletes. His inquisitive mind ultimately led to substantial safety changes across many different sports and levels of competition.
