After having an exciting year filled with new experiences and fun, a local neurologist has written a book about the road he’s traveled. Doctor Russ Schroder started the past year by passing his Functional Neurology Boards. Around the same time he came across an opportunity in Cleveland to be an extra in the movie ‘The Avengers’. Now the doctor has written a book, called "Bucket List: Avengers!" to sum up what he calls, an experiences of a lifetime.

"You get up there, and the excitement is real." explained Schroder. "I didn’t know for almost 9-10 months if I’d even make a cut in the movie, if I’d be recognizeable. Then we showed up May 4th, midnight of May 3rd, like everyone else at Cinemark, and it was just fun to see it all come to fruition."

In the book, Schroder jokingly says he may write a next book, but truthfully says he hasn’t thought about it yet. On page eighty-seven of the book, there is a small section dedicated to thanking WHIZ-TV

"They were really instrumental in having a big piece of the puzzle and having what happened over the last year." Schroder said.

The book isn’t the only exciting part of Schroder’s life right now. He and his fiance will be commemorating the opening of their new M.I.N.D. Institute for Neurological Development with a book signing November 1st at 311 Main street from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.. The M.I.N.D. Institute is a childhood behavioral center that utilizes Functional Neurology to help children with conditions like Dyslexia, Autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD, and Tourette’s.
