Chris Nowinski

Christopher Nowinski is the co-founder and executive director of the Sports Legacy Institute (SLI), a non-profit organization dedicated to solving the sports concussion crisis, and co-director of the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy at the Boston University School of Medicine, where he is also a PhD candidate in Behavioral Neuroscience. Nowinski also serves on the NFL Players Association Mackey-White TBI Research Committee and the Ivy League Concussion Committee.

A former Harvard football player and WWE professional wrestler, Nowinski was forced to retire from a series of concussions in 2003. His challenging recovery from post-concussion syndrome led him to write the critically-acclaimed book Head Gamesin an effort to educate parents, coaches, and children about this previously hidden public health issue. The book later inspired an award-winning documentary of the same name in 2012.
