Focus on: Humanities and The Brain - Concussion

April 13, 2016 from 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Forensic pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu (Will Smith) discovers neurological deterioration similar to Alzheimer’s disease during an autopsy on a former NFL football player. As other athletes face the same diagnosis, the crusading doctor embarks on a mission to raise public awareness about the dangers of football-related head trauma.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Dr. David A. Hovda, Director of the UCLA Brain Injury Research Center. It will be moderated by Susan Derwin, IHC Director.
