From alcoholism to advocacy

Behind the scenes shot of host Lisa Bien and guest Jillian Bauer-Reese

Temple University Professor of Journalism Jillian Bauer-Reese has been in recovery from alcoholism for five years and brings her experiences with addiction to the set of Bouncing Back to provide insight into the trajectory from addiction to recovery.

Having bounced back from substance abuse, Professor Bauer-Reese is now an advocate for better media coverage on the topic of addiction, particularly in the city of Philadelphia. She’s fighting back against inaccurate news stories and teaching the next crop of journalists to cover addiction with nuance, respect and a solutions-driven approach.

Tune in to TUTV Monday, April 9 at 12:30 and 8:30 p.m. to see this all new episode of Bouncing Back.
