A Rare Collection – Easier Said Than Done

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 147 A Rare Collection - Easier Said Than Done There's power in storytelling- for the listener and the storyteller. A Rare Collection is a monthly series featuring people from the rare disease community, sharing a story with a common theme.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Katie Stevens, Executive Director of Team Telomere It's back to school season which has me thinking about how the education system so often fails the most vulnerable children. In 2015, we moved from Idaho to Boston. My son was set to be the sixth patient in the world to undergo a clinical trial for people with Telomere Biology Disorders. We had been searching for the best treatment for my son for years. His body was no longer able to fight viruses and infections, he couldn't stop bleeding and he didn't have enough red blood cells to keep him from feeling easily winded. He was a 12 year old boy whose day-to-day was filled with worry and he just wanted to be "normal". Getting your child an education when critically ill or disabled is easier said than done. I'm thankful for the teachers that stood up for my child. Education for the most vulnerable children of our society shouldn't be dismissed.  Parvathy Krishnan, Foundation Alliance Manager at Global Genes As a child I was always told nothing was impossible and everything would be okay if I saw the positive. I truly believed the ups and downs of life were part of the journey and I just had to see the positive. When I had my first child, I had my parenting journey mapped out and anticipated ups and downs. It was instead filled with potholes, car crashes and train wrecks. It was hard to see the positive when everything seemed bleak. Through our diagnostic odyssey, and through various aggressive treatments taking place concurrently for both of my children, it was hard to find the positive and I felt like I was failing. Hope was a mirage. I felt a medical breakthrough was the only positive that would give me closure. But I was wrong. A smile from my children was the positive I needed. While it's easier said than done to find the positive, even when it feels impossible, remember to turn on the light and hope that this too shall pass.  Becky Tilley, Koolen De Vries Syndrome I'm a passionate writer and advocate. In all the articles and blogs I've written, you'll see the common sentiment to celebrate your uniqueness, be yourself, and enjoy being you. In real life, that's challenging to do. The symptoms of Koolen De Vries Syndrome that myself and my two youngest children share can vary from mild, to moderate, to severe. I grew up with learning disabilities. I was an easy target for bullies. I never learned what it was to love and celebrate what made me different and this is something I want for my children. I want them to be empowered in who they are. For them to do that, I need to be an example, especially as a mom that shares the same syndrome. I feel a responsibility to them to celebrate being unique and inspire my children to do the same.

A caregiver’s love story

"Dying and introspection happening at the same time were a dual reality that I found impossible to ignore when Bill was not doing well. As Bill’s poor prognosis and impending death began to reflect on our life, it was getting harder to respond to the living as we had in the past. Bill seemed to be pulling away from everyone he knew, except for a handful of friends and me. As a dying person, he seemed to be concentrating on only one thing – dying. The truth is that nature is selfish and dying is just part of the natural transition as someone ages. You can’t avoid it, and sometimes it can even sneak up on you." Nancie Wiseman Attwater is the author of A Caregiver's Love Story. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "Dying is a selfish business." Did you enjoy today’s episode?

A physician’s work dread and what he did about it

"Work dread. Even if you didn’t know it had a name, you know the feeling. It is that sensation in the pit of your stomach when you realize that the start of your workday or workweek is fast approaching, and you don’t want it to come. Sometimes it begins on Sunday afternoon when you want to be enjoying time with your family. Other times, you might find yourself sitting in the hospital or clinic parking lot, resisting the beginning of another busy day. Maybe you sit in your car for an extra 10 minutes and allow yourself to finish a podcast episode. Or perhaps you doomscroll on Facebook for a few minutes before taking a deep breath, getting out of your car, and starting your day." Michael Hersh is a gastroenterologist.

We know Polarity Intelligence™ is an essential competency for healthcare leaders. Therefore, it’s important to recognize polarities and differentiate them from problems.

In this podcast, we talk about four levels of Polarity Intelligence Awareness and some of the consequences that occur if you are not consciously aware of your present polarities.

Patti Callahan Henry Untangles What it Means to Remember

What are memories? Do our memories make us who we are? What happens to “us” when our memory fails, and cognitive decline ensues? I discussed these profound questions with one of my favorite authors, Patti Callahan Henry. She is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of sixteen novels, a podcast host, and a co-creator and host of the popular show, Friends & Fiction. Prior to becoming an author, she was a Pediatric Clinical Nurse Specialist with a fascination for memory and focused on neurology and brain trauma. Her novel, The Favorite Daughter, joined our collection of carefully vetted books in November 2019.  “Memory,” she says, “haunts all my work but takes center stage in this one. Who do we become without those memories?”  Patti is the recipient of The Christy Award 2019 Winner “Book of the Year”; The Harper Lee Distinguished Writer of the Year for 2020, and the Alabama Library Association Book of the Year for 2019. She is also a contributor to the monthly life lesson essay column for Parade Magazine. A full-time author and mother of three, she now resides in both Mountain Brook, Alabama, and Bluffton, South Carolina with her husband. In this podcast, we explore how our memories define us, if they do, the landscape of memory, and the concept of “ambiguous loss.” After the Podcast Read Patti’s AlzAuthors post: Memory is at the Heart of Patti Callahan Henry’s The Favorite Daughter ​Purchase The Favorite Daughter on Amazon.

Former Dexcom Exec Claudia Graham Joins StartUp Health’s New T1D Moonshot Impact Board

"The more you know, the better you’ll do living with diabetes," says Claudia Graham. "There's nothing more important in diabetes than empowering patients." If you follow StartUp Health at all, you have seen headlines about our new Type 1 Diabetes Moonshot. To recap, we’ve launched an initiative designed to speed up innovation around Type 1 diabetes by bringing together a cross-disciplinary team of investors, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, researchers, and other industry experts. At the heart of the effort is an Impact Board – basically our T1D dream team – which brings together the top minds in the field for collaborative working sessions. We wanted to take some time on this podcast to introduce you to some of the inspiring folks on this Impact Board and invite you to get involved in the effort. On this episode you’ll meet Claudia Graham, former executive at Dexcom, the company that revolutionized the continuous glucose monitor. She served as VP of Marketing and SVP of Global Access. Now she’s putting her decades of experience at Dexcom – and as someone living with Type 1 diabetes – to work as an advisor and investor. We caught up with Claudia over zoom at her home in Idaho to learn about the opportunities and challenges she sees in the Type 1 Diabetes Moonshot, how StartUp Health helps get away from institutional thinking to break down barriers and empower patients, and how she thinks about leaving a legacy for the next generation. Entrepreneurs, are you working on a T1D solution? We want to hear from you. Investors, want to back an impact-driven fund laser focused on T1D? Contact us. Want more content like this?

SONSIEL: A Nurse Turned to Tech with Joshua Littlejohn, Product Manager of Nurse Experience at IntelyCare

A nurse is always building things that allow better care for patients! This episode features a nurse who has pivoted into technology and now helps build the tools that others use! This week’s guest on the SONSIEL Podcast is Joshua Littlejohn, product manager for the clinician experience at IntelyCare. After working in molecular microbiology and making television, Joshua became a nurse who then turned to technology, inspired to structure the tools and the systems to care for people. He introduces IntelyCare, a platform where individual nurses go and select which facilities, schedules, and shifts they want to work. He talks about his job as a product manager and draws differences and similarities with that of a nurse informaticist, both technology-filled jobs. The former being industry-focused, and the latter health-system-focused. Joshua speaks of finding where he fits in the nursing world and feeling excited about big data innovation in healthcare. Tune in to this episode to listen to Joshua talk about technology making an innovative impact in care and nursing! Click this link to the show notes, transcript, and resources:
