Vice President New Zealand - Dr Elizabeth Roberts

Sister of the late Richmond player Shane Tuck, Renée Tuck has lived experience of how CTE can impact families. After taking his own life in 2020, following a long battle with mental health, Shane was found to have suffered from severe CTE during a brain autopsy. It was this diagnosis, made possible due to the practice of pathology, which helped Shane's family to rebuild their lives thanks to the answers it gave them. Renée feels passionately about supporting other families who are going through loss due to this disease.

Secretary/Treasurer - Prof Noel Woodford

Amanda Green is campaigning to raise awareness of CTE after her husband, NRL legend Paul Green, was found to have a severe form of the disease after being found unresponsive in his home last year. After his brain was donated to the ASBB for examination, a definitive diagnosis helped Paul's family to understand what had happened and finally brought them some closure. Amanda hopes to shine a light on her late husband's diagnosis, so we can advance our approach to detection, education, treatment and support for people suffering from CTE.
