As part of the ongoing Neuroscience Seminar Series, students had an opportunity to hear Akira Chiba a biology professor at the University of Miami speak on campus on Feb. 12.

Dr. Bennet Omalu Presents to a Full House Randy Dean Blakely, Ph.D
Dr. Bennet Omalu spoke at Jupiter's Lifelong Leaning Society for his sold-out lecture, “An Evening with Dr. Bennet Omalu.” He shared about his experience as the first doctor to diagnose chronic brain trauma and identify it as a major factor in the deaths of some professional NFL athletes. His findings were met by an immediate backlash and a media firestorm, leading Omalu to take on the NFL in a move that would forever change sports and medicine. His fight to make the truth known is chronicled in the film “Concussion,” that stars Will Smith as Omalu. Gail and Bill Boyan pictured above with Omalu sponsored the event.
