The film is being sponsored by the Association for Campus Entertainment (ACE) and Campus Life Arts and Programs with an introduction from faculty members Dr. William Bolduc and Dr. Alana Seaman.  
 
Showing starts at 7 p.m. 

A dramatic thriller is based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a sports-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fought for the truth to be known. Omalu's emotional quest puts him at dangerous odds with one of the most powerful - and beloved - institutions in the world. 
 
Dr. Omalu will be on campus for the Leadership Lecture Series on March 29, 2017 in the Burney Center at 7 p.m. to discuss his story of going from humble beginnings to becoming one of the biggest disrupters in the history of sports and medicine. 
 
FREE for EVERYONE!
 
Tickets will be available in Sharky’s Box Office and Game room beginning at 6 p.m. the evening of the event.
