Eric travels around the United States teaching High School and Middle School students on the importance of making healthy decisions and not being afraid to openly express themselves to others when they are going through challenging times. He discusses how this will ultimately make them a stronger person to face life’s challenges of today, tomorrow, and down the road. He does this by discussing real-life examples of both healthy and unhealthy choices that his younger brother Brendan made when growing up.
He’s has been invited to speak on multiple podcasts, started his own blog on decision making, and was interviewed by running congresswoman (Caroline Colarusso) to discuss the tragic story of his brother, how It affected his family, and the life mission he has set out on to help the youth make healthier choices.
Eric has partnered up with the Herren Project to connect with more students and expand his outreach. The Herren Project’s mission is to empower, inspire, and support the youth affected by substance misuse and promotes healthy lifestyle choices to help prevent substance misuse. The organization was started by former NBA player Chris Herren whose life has been dramatically affected by substance misuse in the past.
