The National Football League has announced a webinar that will address the GE-NFL Head Health Challenge on Wednesday, May 22 at 3:00PM ET.

The session is “aimed at further engaging the scientific community,” according to the league. It will focus specifically on Challenge I, which offers up to a $10 million award for a proposal that would advance the understanding and diagnosis of traumatic brain injury.

Participants will include DR. Kevin Guskiewicz, Chair, Department of Exercise and Sport Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a member of the NFL Head, Neck & Spine Committee, and Mark A.
