Concussion Legacy Foundation

The Concussion Legacy Foundation was founded in 2007 by Robert Cantu, M.D., and Christopher Nowinski to solve the concussion crisis by advancing the study, treatment and prevention of the effects of brain trauma in athletes and other at-risk groups. CLF achieves this mission through advocacy, education, policy development and medical research. The Concussion Legacy Foundation and the Boston University School of Medicine partnered, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and founded the VA-BU-CLF Brain Bank, which now includes the largest CTE tissue repository in the world.

CLF's vision is a world without CTE and concussion safety without compromise.
Collaboration with WWE: 
CLF's president and co-founder Chris Nowinski was a WWE Superstar from 2002 to 2003, having to retire after developing post-concussion syndrome. CLF is proud to have Paul "Triple H" Levesque on their Board of Directors. Nowinski also provides an annual lecture on concussions to the main WWE roster and to NXT talent.
