Master Electrician Brad Sudol’s Goal: To Stop Alzheimer’s

June 22, 2018
 
In his spare time, Brad Sudol, is working hard to make sure everyone knows the progress that has been made on Alzheimer’s treatments, and how much needs to be done. For example, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has already approved some drugs that seem to have limited effectiveness, cholinesterase inhibitors and memantine. These medications treat the cognitive symptoms of Alzheimer’s, like memory loss and confusion. This is important because, as the disease progresses, it kills brain cells and cell connections are lost. That is why cognitive symptoms progress and memory problems worsen.

As of now, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, but medical science has been working on it for a while and Brad would like to see a cure sooner rather than later. The progress on Alzheimer’s has actually been impressive so far, as there are now treatments available that can help with many of the cognitive and behavioral symptoms. These treatments can often prolong a person’s quality of life. While none of these medications can arrest the damage the disease does to brain cells, they do seem to be able to mitigate the symptoms for a time by assisting the brain in carrying messages between cells. Brad Sudol seems hopeful that a cure for the disease isn’t far off.

When one examines his career and his profession, Brad Sudol is clearly successful as a professional master electrician based in Philadelphia. He’s actually a certified master electrician with a specialty in low-voltage wiring. Also, Brad obviously takes safety seriously, since he has been certified by OSHA, the federal agency that specializes in workplace safety. Brad Sudol is also certified to work on fire alarms and NCCER has certified his skills in both electrical and carpentry for nearly a decade. However, that is only part of his life.
