The Center for Sports Communication & Media's McGarr Symposium on Sports and Society will provide a platform for a meaningful discussion of football, its effects on the human brain, and the symbolic importance of the sport in American life. Given football’s popularity and its significance to individual and community identities, how might it be possible to reconcile the sport’s strengths with growing concerns about head trauma?
In other words, can we fashion a future for football that preserves the hallmarks of the sport while also attending to legitimate health concerns? This forum will facilitate realistic conversations about the sport and its future in light of growing medical evidence.
