Bennet Omalu

The Power List 2019


Bennet Omalu

Bennet is the President and Medical Director of Bennet Omalu Pathology. He was the first to identify and describe chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in athletes in 2002, providing the first evidence that American football can cause permanent brain damage. He has since campaigned to raise awareness of CTE, leading the National Football League to make rule changes to protect players. “If I could make one change, I would include business communication and management in the training of pathology residents. I believe it would make us more effective, more innovative, and more significant in the business of health and patient care.”
