46: What The Hack (Update)

Hackathons provide a fast-paced, high energy, community-building opportunity for a wide spectrum of participants to flex their innovation muscles and solve for some of today’s greatest challenges. While these events have traditionally been geared towards computer scientists and software developers, in recent years nurses, clinicians, and health innovators have started to convene health-challenge inspired events. Today the health hackathon landscape is exciting, rapidly evolving, and nurses are playing a lead role in driving them. In this episode, we learn from health influencers, hackers, and innovators Jane Sarashon-Kahn, MA, MHSA; Chris Recinos, PhD, RN, FNP-BC, NEA-BC; Anthony Scarpone-Lambert, BSN ‘21; and Jennifferre Mancillas, BSN, RN, RNC-NIC about how hackathons have impacted their thinking, skills, lives, career trajectory, as well as the landscape of innovative health solutions and products.

Mayo Clinic Q&A: Changing COVID-19 recommendations means the science is working

This episode is shared from Mayo Clinic Q&A and was recorded in October, 2021 Guest:  Gregory A. Poland, M.D. (@drgregpoland) Host: Halena M. Gazelka, M.D. (@hmgazelkamd) As continuing research guides medical recommendations, it seems that there are COVID-19 updates released daily. These recommendations cover a range of topics, including whether COVID-19 booster vaccinations are necessary to whether COVID-19 vaccines can be mixed and matched. "The fact that recommendations are changing is not evidence people don't know what they're doing," says Dr. Gregory Poland, head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group. "It's evidence that they do know what they're doing and are paying close attention to new data that's coming along. Then they're adjusting recommendations based on the latest data." Dr. Poland continues to urge people to get the latest COVID-19 news from credible sources.  In this Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Poland walks through the recent recommendations, corrects misperceptions and answers a number of listener questions.

Technology's impact on dermatology

"During COVID, the medical training system had to adapt because people couldn’t meet in person and even those that could didn’t have access to patients or facilities in the same capacity. However, the explosion of remote training tools that became available make this hybrid training method as good in many ways, and perhaps even preferable to one that consists mainly of in-person lectures. In fact, some medical schools have suggested that all preclinical classes should be available exclusively online by 2025. As a result, schools and other stakeholder organizations should examine alternative methods of medical training and can use this opportunity to embrace new technologies in order to effectively and efficiently educate trainees. It may be time to abandon the old ways and fully embrace the advantages virtual training environments, including video games, have to offer." Peter Lio is a dermatologist. He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "The evolution of medical training in dermatology and the impact of technology." (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/09/the-evolution-of-medical-training-in-dermatology-and-the-impact-of-technology.html)

Raising a Son with Batten Disease and the Importance of Never Giving Up with Project Sebastian Founder Christopher Velona

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 105 Raising a Son with Batten Disease and the Importance of Never Giving Up with Project Sebastian Founder Christopher Velona  Christopher Velona is a rare dad on a mission, driving the goals of Project Sebastian. He joins me to share open, honest and vulnerable experiences from his life since his son Sebastian was diagnosed with Battens disease. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Can you tell us about your family? I have two boys, ages 16 and 18, Gage and Sebastian. Sebastian has a rare disease called Batten disease variant CLN8. As a result of seizures, we were misdiagnosed with epilepsy. When Sebastian later had an onset of issues unrelated to epilepsy such as tripping, speaking, difficulty seeing and fine motor skill loss, we were referred for genetic testing and the diagnosis of Batten disease was confirmed.  What did you do with the diagnosis? I did everything the doctor said not to do. I went to WebMD and Google, scouring the internet for Batten disease and reading all the horrible stories online. I was also going through a divorce at the time and I was very angry, sad, resentful and lost. As the diagnosis only further drove us apart, I didn't have the support of a partner.  What has helped you transition into being a single dad and managing Sebastian's diagnosis? I had the support of my family and friends. I'm sober from drugs and alcohol for almost 26 years and I believe in Alcoholics Anonymous, applying the twelve steps to my daily life. With life-changing news, I had to really rely on my tools or face depression. I didn't want to believe it and it was challenging, which led to depression. I used the steps, went to meetings and was able to pull myself out of the depression. I found a mom that gave it to me straight- Kristen Gray from Charlotte and Gwenyth Gray Foundation. She has two children with Batten disease CLN6. She's been a great friend and great support system.  Can you tell us about Project Sebastian? Currently, there's no cure for Batten disease, but there are treatments available to prolong the life of the child. Project Sebastian makes a lot of noise, attacking advocacy and research efforts from all sides. I called my government officials and we co-authored Senate Joint Resolution 25 for Batten Disease Awareness Weekend, which went through the California State Senate and House and unanimously passed. As a result, the first weekend in June is Batten Disease Awareness Weekend for the state of California.

A son's brain cancer. A father's story.

"As you wait, you have a lot of time to think. You comb through the past in search of something you might have missed. If we had acted sooner on the signs of his illness—had the cancer been diagnosed earlier—would Lee have had a better chance? You think about your child as a toddler and as a kid and as a teen. Did you push him too hard or not enough? How did you handle his skinned knees and his successes? You remember the first time he got drunk. (Lee was 14 and had discovered the punchbowl at Heidi’s Sweet Sixteen party.) You remember his first hockey goal." Alan Pesky is founder, Lee Pesky Learning Center and co-author of More to Life than More: A Memoir of Misunderstanding, Loss, and Learning.
