Concussion Discussion With Jodi Radosh
Dr. Jodi Radosh is an Associate Professor of Communications and an Associate Director of the Holleran Center for Community and Global Engagement at Alvernia University. She teaches a variety of classes including social media marketing, public relations, advertising, television production, health communications, and event planning. Dr. Radosh oversees service-learning, in which education is coupled with community service. She assists and mentors professors in linking their courses with community partners.
She has extensive experience in media, having worked at several television news stations. She founded, anchored, and produced “CNN Headline News Local Edition” on Blue Ridge Cable in Ephrata, and co-hosted the magazine show “Around Your Town.” She was a reporter, anchor, and news director for Channel 5 Berks County News in Reading. Further, she was a weekend reporter at WGAL-TV Channel 8, the NBC affiliate in Lancaster/Harrisburg/York. Currently, she moderates election specials and political debates on Berks Community Television (BCTV) in Reading. Her proudest role is mother to her two teenage daughters, Rachel and Dani, as well as wife to Dr. Lee Radosh, a family physician with a focus on addiction medicine.
Jodi also has demonstrated incredible courage. Four years ago, she suffered a concussion which kept her at home for over a year and took two years to completely recover. She created concussion support groups in the community and at Alvernia University. Unfortunately, this past August, a swimming accident caused another bad concussion, which required a lot of physical and occupational treatment once again. Thankfully, she is doing much better and is passionate as ever about spreading concussion awareness as well as helping others with traumatic brain injuries.
