Two programs with ties to sport received generous gifts this year. The innovative and interdisciplinary Center for Sport received a $5.5 million gift from the Douglas J. Hertz Family Foundation, Inc., and the newly created Tulane University Center for Brain Health, also a program of the Center for Sport, received a $12.5 million gift from The Avalon Fund.
The Tulane Center for Sport is devoted to the study, research and support of all areas where sport engages society, including health, legal issues, labor agreements, sports marketing and finance, media, data analytics and venue architecture. The Center for Brain Health, which will work in conjunction with the School of Medicine, will specialize in the treatment of traumatic brain injury and post-
traumatic stress disorder in U.S. military veterans.
