I’m currently touring the west coast of North America in a 1967 Airstream Land Yacht interviewing medical practitioners and athletes about traumatic brain injuries in sport. Upon leaving my job 6 months ago as the Executive Director of a not for profit organization I was forced to come to grips with parts of my athletic past that were causing me a great deal of grief.
Over a 10 year period I sustained multiple hits to the head during my ski and soccer career which included three years on Canada’s National Ski Team (2006 to 2009) and one year playing midfield at the University of Vermont (2004).
The Scott Barrett Project is inspired by three principles;
To continue my own healing journey by speaking and working with practitioners in the field
To learn more about other athletes struggling with head injuries
To provide a platform that could assist others in their own healing journey
