Alumnus to discuss ‘this beautiful Injury’ at ’Nole Talk

By: Erica Martin


James Durham, a professional communication alumnus and founder of non-profit TBIOneLove, will share his secret to a better outlook on life during the ’Nole Talk “This Beautiful Injury” at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19, in the Bayside Auditorium.

Durham has been on “positive steroids” since a motorcycle crash that left him with a severe traumatic brain injury in 2011. Despite his invisible disability, Durham has fought through painful rehabilitation to retrain his brain and achieve his goals with a smile on his face.

“I’m on positive steroids times a million,” he said. “I just keep giving every day my all no matter what, and I just try to lift others up.”

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call Casey Lathem at 770-2168.
