This October part of our team attended the 2017 Gathering of Friends Dinner featuring Dr. Bennet Omalu. This was an amazing evening and incredibly unique experience to hear Dr. Bennet Omalu share his story in person. In 2002, he discovered the presence of a degenerative disease in the brain of former pro football player Mike Webster, naming the condition chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). His efforts to raise awareness of CTE were rebuffed by the NFL, although mounting evidence eventually forced the NFL to make concessions. Omalu's work was dramatized in the 2015 film Concussion, with actor Will Smith portraying the Nigerian-born doctor.
