The Coalition for Concussion Treatment (#C4CT) Concussion Awareness Summit, featured during Super Bowl XLVIII in New York, will focus on important scientific, medical, translational and prevention related topics as they pertain to the emerging global issue of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), particularly on their long-term impacts on athletes and soldiers. All panels will include industry experts, leading scientists, neurologists and international business leaders joined by current and former professional athletes.

The NFL Retired Players Association is dedicated to providing powerful national advocacy and collegial support for retired professional football players, their families and their communities at large. Former NFL players add value and bring a tremendous vitality to the communities they live in. The NFLRPA promotes the retired player as a community asset and a person of influence that can help improve the community as a whole.

Our efforts are focused on building community among former NFL players to promote life balance, well-being and maturity to improve their image, their persona and create an optimum quality of life for the retired player.
