  • In safety Rx, NFL makes high profile recruit

    Elizabeth Nabel will be looking at the work the NFL’s advisors have already done and are currently engaged in. Cantu says Nabel will bring her leadership background in running a major hospital, and the resultant skill set of working with many medical experts.

    “As an administrator of a high-profile hospital, with the natural egos that go with very outstanding staff, it is a little bit like herding cats,” says Cantu.

    “The NFL is on such a ubiquitous platform, and it’s had such a spotlight on it,” says Dan Lebowitz, who heads the Center for the Study of Sport in Society at Northeastern University.

    “Looking at the practices within the league around safety … is not only smart,” he says. “It’s important in terms of the sustainability of the league.”
