Dr. Bennet Omalu, chief medical examiner of San Joaquin County, talks about his research into concussions and brain disease.
Omalu is a forensic pathologist who is also professor in the UC Davis Department of Medical Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.
The Fox40 interview here comes in anticipation of the film “Concussion,” scheduled for a Dec. 25 release, starring Will Smith as Omalu. Omalu’s autopsy of Pittsburgh Steelers center Mike Webster led to his discovery of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in football players.
