Location: Tyler Haynes Commons, Room 305

The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) hosts weekly Brown Bag discussions, open to members of the campus and the community, from 12:30–1:25p.m. on most Fridays during the academic year. Each week, a speaker or small panel leads a presentation on a provocative social issue, then opens up the floor for discussion.

This week's CCE Brown Bag speaker will discuss the risks of football related to brain injuries on a high school level, the education players currently get about the risk, the culture among players regarding handling injuries, the prevention efforts currently in place, and the future of football related to brain injuries. Free pizza will be provided.
