   The true story of Dr. Bennet Omaluís discovery and campaign to protect football players from repeated, mind-altering concussions is told in Peterís Landsmanís film Concussion. A Kenyan-born genius who graduated from medical school at the age of 16 and holds eight advanced degrees as well as multiple board certifications, Omalu is a board-certified forensic pathologist. When he investigated the death of the Pittsburgh Steelerís superstar center Mike Webster (David Morse), he discovered that Websterís brain was damaged because of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a neurodegenerative disease caused by the estimated 70,000 blows to his head he suffered as a football player.
   Though the film reveals in the credits some of the changes that have occurred since Omalu first published his paper in 2005, in real life he continues to campaign to stop young people whose brains are still developing from having the repeated head trauma that football and other sports require. The concussion protocols of the NFL and school football programs are making a difference but the question is: do we just want to lower the number of people injured for sport or do we want to protect every child and every player?
