    Recovery Now...Parkinson's Disease After Brain Trauma

    in Health

    My guest tonight is Dr. Robert Kuvent, who spent his career as an accomplished foot and ankle surgeon. He's served in at least nine Podiatric professional affiliations, and held positions in sixteen varied service organizations. To say he was a "Type A" personality, with an exceptionally busy life is an understatement. Then things changed, when his life was turned upside down with a disconcerting diagnosis. PD, like most other disabling conditions, not only takes a toll on the patient...But their family as well. Dr. Kuvent will be the host of a program called "Shaken Not Stirred" about PD, in our new line up of two hour programs starting in August. He will be on every other Wednesday night to help raise awareness and hope for those whose lives have been touched by Parkinson's.
    Most sources now acknowledge that PD can become a long term effect of people who have suffered previous brain trauma, like the CDC and NIH.
    This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.
    This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."
    We focus on the four A's of Recovery...Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.  :)

  • "Another Fork in the Road" Panel - "Learning Accommodations After Brain Injury"

    in Education

    For many survivors damage to the brain gets in the way of cognitive learning and adaptations must be made. Accommodations come in many and varied forms. This evening two young women, who both sustained a brain injury, Melissa Cronin and Juliet Madsen, are joining me on a panel to discuss “Learning Accommodations After Brain Injury.”


    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, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips 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!
