‘Private Sneak Peeks’ of Alan Schwarz-Produced Documentary, Promoting Commercial Sideline Concussion Test, Resume Tonight

Published June 6th, 2012, Uncategorized

“Private sneak peek” No. 2 of the documentary Head Games is tonight in Boston. The film, inspired by Chris Nowinski’s 2006 book of the same name, is directed by Steve James, includes in its credited production team Alan Schwarz of The New York Times (without disclosure by The Times while Schwarz continued writing about the concussion issue), and is financed by Steve Devick, the billionaire developer of a commercial “solution”: a sideline concussion test.

Private sneak peek No. 3 is tomorrow in Philadelphia, home of Devick-funded research at the University of Pennsylvania, which Nowinski’s Boston University colleague, Dr. Robert Cantu, has disputed. Wonder what Cantu has to say about it in the Head Games film?
