Due to the many concussion-related issues the National Football League has been facing in recent years they are taking steps to help research and advance the science of concussions.
In September of 2013, the NFL donated $30 million to the Foundation for National Institutes of Health to advance medical research on brain injuries. It was the single largest donation to any NFL organization in history. Then, the NFL and GE launched a four-year, $60 million collaboration called the Head Health Initiative. The initiative is used to accelerate diagnosis and improve treatment for traumatic brain injury by finding new technologies and innovations in the space.
