What would you say to Roger Goodell?
The NFL recently launched a comprehensive wellness program for current and retired players. "NFL Total Wellness will empower players to make positive health decisions. . ." Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner
In conjunction with its efforts to help players at the professional level, the NFL is leading the way for a healthier and safer game for players of all ages. I have been invited to participate in the inaugural NFL Youth Health & Safety Workshop hosted by Roger Goodell at the NFL headquarters in Manhattan later this month. Among the contributors are Scott Hallenbeck, USA Football Executive Director, head injury consultants and representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Various speakers will highlight the NFL’s work to make youth sports safer and then the fun begins—we openly share with each other all that we know and is concerning us. They’ve asked me to come prepared for a lively discussion . . .
that’s where you come in.
The opportunity to create something wonderful exists right now. Please consider sharing your concerns, experience, and opinions. Now more than ever, parents must form a team that shares our collective wisdom and our fears with those who are willing and able to rally the nation.
