NFL, General Electric Announce Concussion Study Partnership

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell this morning announced a new initiative with General Electric "to put more research into how" head injuries occur in football, "how do we prevent them, and how do we diagnose them" (“Face the Nation," CBS, 2/3). The four-year initiative, "expected to begin in March with at least $50 million from the league and GE, is the result of a late October conversation between" Goodell and GE Chair & CEO Jeffrey Immelt (N.Y. TIMES, 2/3).
