Trisha Meili was known to the world as "The Central Park Jogger". Her life was violently interrupted on April 19, 1985 in Central Park. Her brutal attack was one of the most widely publicized crimes of the 1980's. She spent 12 weeks in a coma. Remarkably, she largely recovered, with some lingering disabilities.
Currently Meili is as an inspirational speaker. She also works with victims of sexual assault and brain injury in the Mount Sinai sexual assault and violence intervention program.
