NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tulane University says it has joined the NFL's Neurological Care Program for retired players.

The NFL and the NFL Alumni Association established the program in 2010, giving players access to neurological hospitals for evaluation and treatment of brain and spinal function.

Tulane said in a news release Wednesday that the program will be led by Dr. Roger Kelley, chairman of Neurology at Tulane University School of Medicine, and Dr. Gregory Stewart, medical director of Tulane Centers for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Other institutions in the program are Inova Memory Center of Falls Church, Va.; Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta; Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York; University of California in San Francisco; University of Southern California in Los Angeles; and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
