NFL Neurosurgeon, Ironman Triathlete

It is not everyday that I get to speak to a renowned neurosurgeon for the NFL. Yes! The National Football League. In addition, long time team neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Joseph C. Maroon, M.D., FACS, is Professor and Vice chairman of the Department of Neurological Surgery and Heindl Scholar in Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He is a world-renowned neurosurgeon, health and nutrition expert and Ironman triathlete. He obtained his medical and neurosurgical training at Indiana University, Georgetown University, Oxford University in England and the University of Vermont.

He is regarded as a premiere specialist in the surgical treatment of injuries and diseases of the brain and spine, particularly with microscopic and minimally invasive procedures. He had done extensive research into brain tumors, concussions and diseases of the spine that have led to many innovative techniques for diagnosing and treating these disorders. Consistently listed in America’s Best Doctors, he has an international referral base

Team neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers since 1981, Dr. Maroon has successfully performed surgery on numerous professional football players and other elite athletes with potentially career-ending neck and spine injuries, safely returning them all to their high level of athletic performance. He serves on the National Football League’s Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Committee. Along with Mark Lovell, Ph.D., in the early 1990’s, Dr. Maroon co-developed ImPACT™ (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing), the first, most-widely used and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system. ImPACT is a 20-minute test that has become a world-wide standard tool used in comprehensive clinical management of sports-related concussions for athletes of all ages. Over 3 million athletes have been base-lined with ImPACT™.

Dr. Maroon is frequently quoted as an expert source by national media, recently including the New York Times, USA Today, Associated Press, ESPN, Sports Illustrated.

Robert Ferguson, MS,CN ~ Celebrity Nutritionist & Fitness Specialist

It takes an Intense Passion & Enthusiasm to achieve Success in your Business, Fitness & Lifestyle Goals. My guest is Entreprener, Celebrity Nutritionist & Fitness Specialist ~ Robert Ferguson, MS, CN. Healthful living and lifestyle changes work," said the author of Conquering the Munchie Monster. "What so many look for is a quick fix; but at the end of the day, they are less than successful because they don't believe they can be successful." Ferguson, who owns the company Diet Free Life, has been helping people achieve weight loss through healthful living since 1998.

A former U.S. Marine, he works with both the general population and celebrities. He also is a physical conditioning and nutrition specialist for professional boxers on Showtime®, HBO®, ESPN® and "The Contender." One of Ferguson's goals is to bridge the gap within the African American community between knowing what is healthful and practicing what it knows. He conducts free live cooking demonstrations and fitness programs, and delivers motivational speeches in urban areas across the country. Ferguson teaches people how to make their favorite recipes more healthful, and he shows his clients how to incorporate good health into their existing lifestyles with diet and fitness plans customized to meet each person's needs. "There is a misconception that healthful living is boring, bland and difficult to maintain. But it really can be enjoyable, fun and easy," he said. "Many people who want to be healthy feel like they have to walk away from their cultural identities," he added. "They have an all-or-nothing mindset: either eat bland and boring -- steamed broccoli and salmon -- or go back to eating fried chicken every day." Friends and family often are the biggest stumbling blocks to living a healthful lifestyle.

"There's an internal battle between being healthy and being accepted," Ferguson said.

"People are always thinking about what they'll lose by upgrading their lifestyle with nutrition and fitness. When people start to eat healthfully, and all their friends and family continue to eat unhealthfully, they feel like they stand out." But Ferguson believes that when healthful efforts are viewed as a lifestyle change rather than as a diet, individuals will become self-reliant and empowered -- and therefore experience long-term success. They also will set positive examples for those closest to them. "I want to open eyes and minds to show that life can be lived and experienced differently without the word DIET," Ferguson said. ~ DietFreeLife.com

A renowned, sought-after global speaker, he is widely respected for his many achievements, both in the corporate and non-profit worlds.

Mr. Kemp graduated from Georgetown University in 1971 and Washburn University School of Law in 1974. He has received two Honorary Doctorate degrees, the first an Honorary Doctorate of Law from Washburn University School of Law in May 2003, and the second, on May 5, 2018, an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from the University of Connecticut, while serving as the Graduate School Commencement Speaker.

With more than 50 years of direct experience in the disability movement, Mr. Kemp has partnered with, worked for and served as Board Member/Chair or CEO of some of the leading disability and nonprofit organizations.

In 1995, Mr. Kemp co-founded the American Association of People with Disabilities with Paul G. Hearne.

Bev also worked at Black Entertainment Television for over thirteen years, as the host of the popular national television talk show "Our Voices."

In 2011, Bev signed off the air as host of "The Bev Smith Show" which was heard on the American Urban Radio Networks, where she was fondly known by many of her fans as "The Queen of Late Night Talk." She hosted the show since 1998, and was the only African American woman radio talk show host who had a nationally syndicated show in the country and was the only African American woman to host a nationally syndicated Radio show.

Don Siegelman ~ Let's Vote 2020! A View on Current Socio-Economic Issues!!

WSJ,TIME,CNN, MSNBC,FOX, NY Times have covered My Guest, Former Governor Don Siegelman a former American politician, lawyer who held several elected offices in the state of Alabama.

He is back to talk about his Thoughts on the 2020 Vote, Biden/Harris the growing Corona-virus Pandemic, Things He has Learned in the last decade Fighting for Justice & the Future.

His conviction was questioned by over 100 former Bi-Partisan attorney generals & officials & they petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to look into his case. National & International media have also covered his case: NY Times, CNN, FOX, TIME just to name a few. His NEW Book: "Stealing Our Democracy: How a Political Assassination of a Governor Threatens Our Nation" in Bookstores NOW.

He served one term as the 51st Governor of Alabama from 1999 to 2003. As of 2020, Siegelman is the last member of the Democratic Party, as well as the only Roman Catholic, to serve as Governor of Alabama. He is the only person in the history of Alabama to be elected to serve in all four of the top statewide elected offices: Secretary of State, Attorney General, Lieutenant Governor and Governor. He served in Alabama politics for 26 years. In a searing political memoir, former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman explodes the myth of an impartial U.S. justice system. He should know. Arguably the most successful and promising politician in modern Alabama history, his three-decade career in public service ran afoul of rival opponents who used the federal judicial system to take him out of contention in Alabama and nationally.

Siegelman ultimately was sentenced to 88 months in federal prison and served five years, with long stretches in solitary confinement during which he was a literal political prisoner, cut off from interviews and outside contact.
