Yesterday I had the pleasure of sharing my concussion/TBI journey on WCCO Radio on “News and Views with Roshini Rajkumar” … and to make this episode even more special … we filmed live at the Minnesota State Fair WCCO News Radio booth!!
I have known Roshini for several years since photographing her for her Savvy MN Magazine cover shoot and she has been a great friend and resource to me since — she also introduced me to my amazing women’s writing group!
Roshini asked Dr. Jeremy and I to come on her show this week to talk about National Concussion Awareness Day coming up on September 15th, as well as the latest report on NFL players and CTE. We also talked a lot about our fantastic feature story in this month’s Experience Life magazine which is focused on concussion awareness. You can read the full feature story here: http://bit.ly/2itUHeF
We talked for over 20 minutes on our segment and covered a lot of great info. Roshini commented on how she has watched my recovery progress and can tell how much I am improving every time she sees me on her show … she even got a little emotional which got ME emotional LOL! I owe a huge part of my recovery to Dr. Jeremy Schmoe at Minnesota Functional Neurology … he was the first doctor to truly believe me about my symptoms and totally validated my eye tracking issues and how much it was affecting my dizzy/balance.
In conjunction with National Concussion Awareness Day, Dr. Schmoe and his staff will be offering complimentary baseline brain health assessments at his clinic in Minnetonka on Sept. 16th.
