We are excited to announce our Inspirational Keynote Speaker for our 2016 National Conference on Hydrocephalus. Mr. Taurean Nixon!
Taurean Nixon is currently a cornerback for the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos. He attended college at Tulane University and played for the Green Wave before he was drafted by the Broncos in the 2015 NFL Draft. Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Taurean remains close to his family. His younger brother, TJ, was born with hydrocephalus and is now 4 years old. TJ inspires Taurean to be an active member of his Denver community. Taurean can often be found in the pediatric wing of the local hospital visiting children and their families and was named the Denver Broncos 2015 Community Rookie of the Year for his commitment to the community. Supporting TJ through his journey with hydrocephalus and the numerous hospital stays and surgeries gives Taurean a personal connection to the kids and families he visits.
