Brandon Boyd joined the Concussion Legacy Foundation in July of 2017. He manages the CLF Media Project, the first and only concussion education program for journalists. Prior to joining the Foundation, Brandon was an Algebra I Teacher at New Bedford High School in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
Brandon grew up an avid sports fan in Bellevue, Washington, and majored in Communications at the University of Washington. After graduating, he joined Teach For America and was placed in Massachusetts before getting hired at New Bedford High School, where he was also an assistant basketball coach and ran a podcast club for students to discuss sports.
During his senior year of college, Brandon wrote an article on concussions and CTE for which he interviewed members of the Foundation. The interview sparked an interest in how the concussion crisis threatens the sports he grew up loving, and an admiration for the work of the Foundation from afar. Now Brandon hopes his work will contribute to the continuity of sports and the immediate safety of youth athletes.
