The Doctor Who Took on the NFL

Omalu is a physician who has conducted groundbreaking research in the field of concussion in athletes.  The 2011 NFL lockout was in part due to Omalu’s findings, as players made their own safety a key issue.  He was played by Will Smith in the 2015 film Concussion.  He also conducted a private autopsy of Stephen Clark, an unarmed African-American fatally shot by the police, which differed significantly from the official police autopsy
