The Rev. Imani Dodley, Sports-Related Brain Injuries, & Stop The Trafficking Run/Walk

Sep 5, 2014

On this edition of Need to Know, Reverend Imani Dodley of Reformation Lutheran Church discusses how she’s working to incorporate the healing properties of yoga to help at-risk residents in our community tackle violence, abuse, addiction, mental illness, and more. We’ll learn all about Dodley’s mission to help yoga break new ground in our area through her non-profit, Yoga 4 A Good Hood.

Also on the show, with school now back in session and fall sports kicking off, concussion awareness efforts for Rochester youth are on the rise. Need to Know’s Carlet Cleare talks with local sports medicine experts who are teaching young people about the signs and symptoms of concussions and how to prevent them.

And the non-profit Angels of Mercy is taking a multi-layered approach in the fight against human trafficking locally and overseas.
