Invest­ing in brain health (CNBC):

No more than 10 years ago, I played for a league where I felt the pres­sures both inter­nal­ly and exter­nal­ly to return to the field and keep play­ing no mat­ter what. The words “con­cus­sion” and “TBI” (trau­mat­ic brain injury) were not fre­quent­ly used among the med­ical staff. My team­mates and I had no idea that see­ing stars or blurred vision after a hard hit were signs of brain damage.
