Convinced the NFL has no interest in him or his DNA methodology as part of any health-and-safety solution, Johnsen is redirecting his expertise out of players’ helmets and into DFW’s health-conscious bodies.Goodbye, Simplified Genetics.

CBS News journalists, embedded with survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting, take viewers inside the creation of a movement as students turn grief into action in the documentary "39 Days." In the days after a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shot and killed 17 people, CBS News began following a group of students who banded together to fight back. They set out to let the world know immediate change is needed to save lives. The documentary captures students' raw emotions as they grieve and work around-the-clock in an effort to change the gun laws of this country. Journalists were also embedded with Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the shooting.

The documentary presents a timeline of the tumultuous events from the first day of the shooting … [Read more...] about “39 Days”: How Parkland shooting survivors turned grief into action
