Welcome back to work and to another week of #ThatBusinessShow on #1250WHNZ.

If you have started a business and need guidance and resources, consider joining TBBO, Tampa Bay Business Owners.

Opening up the program today was Dr. Rahul Mehra, CEO and Chief Medical Office of MehraVista Health. Specializing in Employee Assistance Programs, Dr. Mehra is a sought after speaker and presenter in the industry. He was in studio today though to discuss a topic that needs more attention and that is student-athlete stress. Given the daily rigors of anybody’s life, the added stresses that athletes incur are often not addressed properly leading to decreased academic performance, substance abuse, and relationship problems. Dr. Mehra became involved in the issue recently after the issues with concussions came to light and through his leadership has assembled a panel of experts to discuss this with the community. The event, The GameChanger, is being held July 30th from 8am to 11am at the Centre Club and tickets are $25.00. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Centre Club at 813-286-4040 or contactus@centretampa.com. An all-star lineup of panelists will be attending including Dr. Mehra, Coach Jon Gruden, and US Olympic Silver Medalist in Ice Hockey Ms. Anne Schleper to name a few. Endorsed by the NCAA, Dr. Mehra hopes to open this discussion up to broader channels outside of Tampa and could use your support. Reach out to him directly at rmehra@mehravistahealth.com for more information!

At 7:30, I welcomed Martine Dorvil, Director of Programs with the University Area Community Development Corporation. Martine has spent 14 years with the UACDC and was in studio today to discuss their mission and their programs. The UACDC works with residents around the University of South Florida area to improve the quality of their lives. Through educational, outreach and social programs, they are making a difference in the community. They created the STEPS program to help families overcome poverty which consists of three key planning tools, prescription for prosperity, individual goal plan, and implementing a network of support. Their dreamcatcher program works with children and she talks about how they are learning Chinese and Chess and the community garden they have too which is open to the residents. You do not need to be a resident in the USF area either to benefit she stresses and their services are free and open to anyone inside Hillsborough County. Learn more at www.uacdc.org!
