Local Inventor and CEO Joins NECC Alumni Board
Bradford resident Brian Mohika, CEO of CathWear, has been named to the Northern Essex Community College Alumni Board. His appointment was voted upon unanimously at the Board’s March 20 meeting.
Originally from Lawrence, Mohika graduated from NECC’s radiologic technology program in 2006 and from UMass Lowell’s Bachelor of Science in nursing program in 2015. Since that time, he has devoted a large part of his career to inventing and patenting devices for individuals recovering from mobility-limiting medical procedures. In 2017 he created the Lawrence-based CathWear, a unisex underwear brand with a built-in catheter channel tract, designed to improve quality of life for patients with certain conditions.
His work and story was recently featured in the Lawrence Partnership’s “Why Lawrence?” video series, which highlighted his contributions to the regional economy and workforce.
In joining the Alumni Board, Mohika states, he hopes to continue the spirit of community involvement by giving back to the college that gave him a start.
“I want to give back to the school in any way I can for its help in launching my medical career,” he says.
The NECC Alumni Board is an organization dedicated to engaging alumni and promoting their interests to the college and community. Board members meet regularly to plan and discuss alumni events, fundraising initiatives, scholarship awards, and more.
