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.

“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.”
