  • Another Fork in the Road: Jessica Taylor Survivor/Author

    in Education

    Jessica Taylor learned about brain injury the hard way when she fell down a flight of concrete stairs. That event changed her life forever. Jessica had to pick up the pieces and glue them back together. She details her life with brain injury in her book, "Tragedy to Triumph: Journey Back from the Edge." She will share her story and tell of how she advocates for brain injury survivors now.
    Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!

  • Neil Haley Interviews Joe White- Author, Speaker, and Life Coach

    in Education

    Joe White is an author, speaker, international trainer, and life coach dedicated to helping individuals, business leaders and couples.  Joe White, who was born and raised in Sharon Hill, Delaware County, has more than 14 years of experience helping people turn their lives around.
    Following years of “real life” experience, Joe founded Get Life Coaching in 1999.  His perseverance to survive a near-death overdose , beat drug addiction, and a lifetime of personal struggles have given him the skills and energy to help thousands of people change their lives for the better.
    The story of how Joe White came into life coaching more resembles a VH1 Behind the Music episode than a traditional story.  After dropping out of college, Joe left the Philadelphia area to pursue his dreams of becoming a model.   He took a job as a VIP concierge in a New York City nightclub in the early 90’s to supplement his modeling income, but encountered a serious alcohol and cocaine addiction.  Joe’s battle with addiction eventually cost him his success and nearly killed him.  In an act of desperation to change his life, he purchased a set of Tony Robbins self-help cassette tapes and studied them relentlessly.  Within a few short years, Joe had not only turned his life around, but was being courted by The Tony Robbins Organization to join his coaching team.  Being the perennial entrepreneur, Joe decided to go out on his own and, thus, Get Life Coaching was born.

    It's a topic we've addressed in various forms, but this is an entire show dedicated to medicine.  Science-based medicine.  Alternative medicine.  The names and claims of many so-called "natural" cures.  And the charge that medical science should be distrusted in favor of unlicensed "healers" who operate outside the checks and balances of regulatory agencies, and who - in so many cases - are making a pretty penny.
    Joining us for the show are Dr. Harriett Hall (the "SkepDoc") of Science Based Medicine: https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org, and Dr. Stephen Barrett of QuackWatch.com.
