About Concussion Legacy Foundation
The CLF was founded by Chris Nowinski and Dr. Robert Cantu. After seeking help from Dr. Cantu for his own post-concussion symptoms, Chris' view about concussions was completely changed. He discovered he had never been taught the signs and symptoms of a concussion, so he didn’t report them or even know he had them while playing football at Harvard. He wasn’t told the value of resting after a concussion, nor was he warned of the long-term effects. Chris decided to bring the information Dr. Cantu provided him into the public eye, and set a goal to change how concussions were understood and handled in sports.
