Episode 21: Featuring Mia Roseberry and Navid Hannanvash

Wounded Warriors Homes in the San Diego area is a wonderful non-profit organization that delivers support and transitional housing and reintegration services to the military’s single, post 911 combat vets who have suffered traumatic brain injuries or PTS. Mia Roseberry, the Founder and Executive Director joined Jared Kelley and James Carmody on Rise Up Radio to talk about the important work Wounded Warrior Homes supplies for returning combat veterans. According to Roseberry, the national average of time it takes veterans to receive their benefits after returning home is 236 days. That’s just about four months shy of a year’s time. In the meantime the returning combat vets have to worry about what they are supposed to do for those 236 days with no job, no money and in most cases no place to live. Wounded Warrior Homes is not simply a non-profit group that helps combat vets, it is a movement and a community that helps vets get the support and help they need. During the chat on Rise Up Radio, Roseberry explains how many of the vets return to mentor other vets and how the organization is in need of more funding and help to more vets. Currently they can house veterans within 24 hours of learning of their need, unfortunately for the first time they have a waiting list for seven veterans in need of support and services. 


Physical therapy is not simply about getting healing in the body, it should also involve a person as a whole. This is the passion behind R.I.S.E. Physical Therapy clinic according to Dr. Navid Hannanvash. Hannanvash received his Doctor Of Physical Therapy degree at the University of Southern California and majored in Athletic Training at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dr. Hannanvash recently sat down with James Carmody and Jared Kelley on Rise Up Radio to discuss the clinics holistic approach to physical therapy. He also discussed why he believes physical therapy should be about life and everything you do, not simply focused on healing parts of the physical body. It is about the journey of strengthening the mind and spirit as well. R.I.S.E. stands for Revolution In Self-Evolution, which reflects the unique and specialize individualized care he believes every person deserves. “It doesn’t matter what you do, or who you are, everyone deserves the best treatment possible.”
