The Head Health Initiative is one of the ways that the NFL continues to make significant strides in promoting a culture of safety for NFL players and, through our leadership, for football players and other athletes at all levels. The focus is on the total health of athletes from when they start playing the game through their entry into our League to their transition out of the game. We embrace a leadership position on this issue and will not relent in our work towards a safer game.

Below are links describing the priorities, partnerships, and rules related to the NFL’s work on health and safety from, the League’s health and safety website.
