Among the topics set to be covered is the May 29 White House Healthy Kids and Safe Sports Concussion Summit.

During the summit, the president is set to announce new commitments by the public and private sectors to raise awareness about how to identify, treat and prevent concussions and to conduct research into sports-related concussions to better address that issue. He's set to be joined at the summit by young athletes, parents, coaches, experts, professional athletes and military service members.

Strahan's background as a former New York Giants defensive end and current analyst for Fox NFL Sunday gives him firsthand insight into the importance of sports safety.
