Our Western Maryland office in Lavale now has a potential radio personality in clinician Mark Treasure, CP, BOCO! Dankmeyer staff and patients know that Mark is a guitarist and vocalist when he is not in the office serving the needs of area patients, particularly on Sundays at his church with his wife Linda. On October 25th, however, Mark’s voice could be heard very early in the morning on WCBC 107.1, when he “appeared” in an interview with host Dave Norman.
Mark had an opportunity to talk about the history of Dankmeyer (founded in 1954) and the Cumberland area office, which was established in 1974 by Dankmeyer founder, Charles Herbert “Herb” Dankmeyer, a bilateral amputee. (You can read about the history of this office by clicking here.) During the interview, Dave reveals that he was familiar with Dankmeyer, having come to the office as a young athlete for an orthosis in the early Eighties, which he still has and uses! Dave also talks about his own father’s limb loss. Originally scheduled to last for three minutes, the two chatted for ten minutes.
Mark claims he was a little nervous during the interview, but he sounds like a natural to us! You can listen to the interview by clicking here.
Mark welcomed the opportunity to inform people about the services Dankmeyer provides, telling Dave that he and Patient Services Representative Heather Iman live in the area and are ready and able to serve the Western Maryland area five days a week. And Dave knows that because he last saw Mark at church!
This was Mark’s second educational effort in October. Just a week prior, Mark had been a guest lecturer at the Allegany College of Maryland (ACM). Mark lectures annually to Physical Therapy Assistant students, but in October, he spent time with the Occupational Therapy Assistant students.
