BalancingACK--with Chris Nowinsky on America's concussion crisis

Part one of a two-part podcast

Here's BalancingACK, Nantucket Chronicle's wellness radio show presented on Nantucket's own NPR affiliate, WNCK, 89.5 fm.  BalancingACK is hosted by Joanna Roche, Nantucket Chronicle Wellness Captain and Spa Director at The Westmoor Club.  Joanna brings years of experience in wellness and radio broadcasting to this show, which is aired weekly on Saturday mornings at 10:30am and repeating Sunday mornings at 11:30am.  Her guests will include Nantucketers and others in the wide-ranging topic of personal wellness.

Today's episode Joanna interviews Chris Nowinsky, author of Head Games, on the topic of America's concussion crisis in sports.  Chris Nowinski tells his remarkable story - how a former Ivy League football player and WWE wrestler fought the NFL and turned his post-concussion syndrome into a successful crusade that has made concussions one of the most important public health issues of our time.  

BalancingACK is also available in podcasts right here on NantucketChronicle.com.
