The Russian Flagship Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill recently completed a successful first year.

Dr. Kevin Guskiewicz and Roger Goodell discuss the sensors placed in a football helmet that are used in the Helmet Impact Telemetry (HIT) Study. Goodell, Commissioner of the National Football League (NFL), was the Blyth Lecturer for the Exercise and Sport Science (EXSS) Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with the lecture being held inside Alumni Hall at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center. Goodell was invited by Dr. Kevin Guskiewicz, EXSS Department Chair, Kenan Distinguished Porfessor and Director of the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center (Gfeller Center). Guskiewicz's research on concussions has reshaped the way the NFL, military and many other sports are approaching injuries to the head, neck and spine. Goodell and Guskiewicz, also a member of the NFL's head, neck and spine committee, made the rounds at the EXSS department including a presentation about the Gfeller Center research and an introduction Q&A about the the Sports Management program at UNC-Chapel Hill. Goodell also took a few minutes to meet two Carolina football athletes and head football coach Larry Fedora. (photos © Kevin Seifert for EXSS)
