CJSM Podcast 7: Chris Nowinski

jsm-podcast-bg-1Our second podcast of the year focuses on the on-going sport ‘concussion crisis,’ a topic we have explored in previous podcasts with guests such as Drs. Cindy Chang and Matt Gammons of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) and Drs. Oliver Leslie and Neil Craton of the Canadian Academy of Sport and Exercise Medicine (CASEM/ACMSE).


Chris Nowinski

We’re happy to have Chris Nowinski as our guest for this podcast.  He is the author of Head Games, the co-founder and chief executive officer of the Sports Legacy Institute, and a published author in the pages of the Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine.

Our conversation ranged from the issues of underreporting of brain injury in sport to the use of helmet sensors in helmeted sports to identify possible concussive and sub-concussive hits; from youth football to elite soccer, and more.

We appreciate the time Chris gave us from his busy schedule, and we hope you enjoy the conversation.  Share with us your comments–here on the blog or on our twitter feed, @cjsmonline.
