It is simply the case that Bradley Sudol is a man who nurtures two passions in his life. Of course, one passion comes with his main career as a professional electrician based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In that career, he is certified as a master electrician, with a specialty in low-voltage wiring. Brad also is one of the safest in the country when working around electricity, which is why OSHA has certified him as a safe electrician. If you need more evidence, Brad Sudol also has been NCCER certified for both electrical and carpentry for about the last decade or so. Brad is also certified to work on fire alarms.

To indulge his other passion, 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.

This is important because, as Alzheimer’s progresses, it kills brain cells and cell connections are lost, which is why cognitive symptoms progress and memory problems worsen. While these medications can’t stop the damage 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. Curing Alzheimer’s is very important for Brad Sudol, and he is doing all he can to make it happen.
