Electricians and Alzheimer’s Advocate Brad Sudol

It is simply the case that Bradley Sudol is a man who nurtures two passions in his life. Of course, he has a passion for how he makes his living, as a professional electrician based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is certified as a master electrician, with a specialty in low-voltage wiring, which is phenomenally important in this technological age. His passion for electrical wiring has led Brad Sudol to be one of the safest master electricians in the country. He is so safety-oriented, OSHA has certified Brad as a safe electrician. Brad also has been NCCER-certified for both electrical and carpentry for about the last decade or so.

Then there is his other passion. You see Brad Sudol acts as an advocate for increased research and awareness of the toll taken on society by Alzheimer’s. There is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s, but medical science has been working on solving the problems associated with the ailment, so there are now treatments available that can help with many of the cognitive and behavioral symptoms and at least help patients maintain their quality of life just a bit longer. For example, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved drugs that seem to have limited effectiveness, cholinesterase inhibitors and memantine, which are used to treat the cognitive symptoms, like memory loss and confusion.

The Advocacy of Brad Sudol

For a career, Bradley Sudol makes an excellent living as a Philadelphia-based certified master electrician, where he is a certified specialist in low-voltage wiring. He has been doing this a while, so he has a lot of experience to rely on and his clients and customers appreciate the work he does. He also obviously does his job safely, given that he has been certified as a safe electrician by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). He also has been certified by NCCER as both a carpenter and an electrician. Oh, yeah; he also is certified to work on fire alarms.

When he isn’t working as one of the best electricians in the Philadelphia area, Brad Sudol is an advocate for those suffering from Alzheimer’s, which is the most common form of dementia. This disease is very debilitating and it affects everyone associated with the sufferer. Alzheimer’s results in serious problems with memory, thinking and behavior. The memory loss is often severe enough to lead to impact the sufferer’s daily life, to the point that it often requires daily nursing care to maintain their lifestyle.

It is Brad Sudol’s intent to increase awareness of Alzheimer’s and to make sure everyone helps contribute to its cure, which he hopes will happen within his lifetime. Alzheimer’s is largely associated with old age because the vast majority of Alzheimer’s sufferers are 65 and older. That said, around five percent of Alzheimer’s patients are afflicted with the “early-onset” version of the disease, which can affect some people while they are still in their 40s or 50s. This is one of the worst diseases anywhere, and Bradley Sudol is intent on bringing about an end to it.

Brad Sudol and the Phillies

Many men identify themselves based on what they do for a living. Based on that, Bradley Sudol is a Philadelphia-based professional electrician. He is certified in low-voltage wiring and he is also certified as a master electrician. To show that he takes safety seriously, he is also certified by OSHA and he is also certified to work on fire alarms. Brad Sudol also trained to be certified with NCCER for both electrical and carpentry, which he has held for nearly a decade.

However, while Brad Sudol is a highly skilled electrician, he is far better known as a baseball blogger whose specialty happens to be following his beloved Philadelphia Phillies. Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Phillies are the oldest baseball team in the league. At least, they are the only continuously operated sports franchise in the country that has never changed its name or its city. The Phillies were established in 1883 as a member of the National League and they still occupy the same position to more than 130 years later.

It is Brad Sudol’s job (or hobby, depending on how you look at it) is to impart to everyone that his Philadelphia Phillies have a full, rich history, both good and bad. They have won two World Series championships since 1903, when the Series was set up, but they have also won seven National League pennants, beginning in 1915. While the Phillies sport the fourth-longest World Series drought in Major League Baseball history, Bradley Sudol would rather concentrate on the present, or at least the recent past. They are now one of the most competitive teams in Major League Baseball and that makes for a better story.
