Photos from International Stuttering Association's post

A year ago I had the opportunity, along with National Stuttering Association (NSA) Chairman of the Board Dr. Gerald Maguire and NSA Member David Resnick to represent stuttering and the NSA on a cable TV show called Lifestyle Magazine. With a reach of 3 million throughout the US and Internationally, we hope we reach anyone yet to find support.

Here is the link for the show that is airing this week, finally
