Fred Willis, former NFL Player, and Founder, President & CEO of HPN Neurologic recently visited the NFL ALumni Northern California Chapter to talk about raising awareness and consciousness for retired NFL players suffering the symptoms of Post-Concussion Syndrome/TBI/CTE.
Repetitive mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), such as that experienced by Retired NFL Players, has been associated with the development of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
Fred and his associates at HPN Neurologic invited former players in the San Francisco Bay Area to participate in HPN Neurologic Clinical Treatment Trial Studies and receive a Free Intake Evaluation.
“I want to thank my NFL Brothers in Northern California for their courage to face the serious cognitive impairment issues (Post-Concussion Syndrome) that appears to affect so many former retired NFL players. I would also like to thank Dr. Eileen Roberts and Dr. Kimberly Bell and their staff for showing such responsibility and attention to the health, well-being, and safety of my NFL brothers. And finally special thanks to two amazing men, Dave August and Russ Isaacson of the NFL Alumni Northern California office in Redwood City for their display of kindness and concern for everyone who attended. To them I say ‘the power of giving is your ticket to changing the world.'” -Fred Willis Former NFL Player and Founder, CEO HPN Neurologic
