Launching “Poetry for the Dementia Journey”: An AlzAuthors Anthology

In this podcast, host Marianne Sciucco is joined by an ensemble of talented poets to officially launch our anthology, Poetry for the Dementia Journey. This collection brings together caregivers who have personally navigated the complexities of caregiving, diagnosis, and emotional upheavals tied to Alzheimer's and dementia. They write about many of the situations common to caregivers: the impact of the initial diagnosis, moving into assisted living or memory care, saying goodbye. From touching moments with loved ones to the nuanced challenges of caregiving, these poems offer solace, understanding, and a break from the isolating silence often surrounding dementia. Whether you’re a caregiver, a family member, or someone seeking to understand the impact of Alzheimer's, this anthology and today’s episode provide a profound sense of connection and empathy. You'll experience a myriad of emotions, from sadness to joy, despair and hope. In the end, you will be comforted in knowing that you are not alone. Takeaways: ·      Gain insight into the profound impact of personal storytelling on Alzheimer's. ·      Understand the unique challenges and emotional impact of early onset Alzheimer's on families. ·      Explore the benefits of creative expression in providing holistic care for individuals with dementia.

Medical Gaslighting in the ER: Sarah’s Story

At 29, Sarah Carthen Watson was only days away from her wedding when she experienced chest pain. Her visit to the ER became a stark example of medical gaslighting, where health care professionals appeared to dismiss or overlook her concerns. Medical gaslighting not only erodes trust but also risks missing diagnoses and delaying treatment. Key Takeaways Lean on family and friends for advocacy support. Be specific about the diagnosis you're most concerned about. Ask: "Has every (reasonable) test been done to make sure I don't have ________?" If a healthcare professional refuses to do any tests, labs, or x-rays, demand that they document your request and their denial in the electronic health record.

From Head to Toe: How to Perform a Skin Exam

Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D., [@chutkaMD] Guest: Emma F. Johnson, M.D. For both men and women, skin cancer is the most common malignancy and unlike colon, breast and lung cancer, skin cancers should be visible as they exist on the exterior of our bodies. Primary care providers need to be proficient in examining the skin of our patients and recognizing suspicious skin lesions. It’s just not possible to send all patients to a dermatologist for a skin exam. In this podcast, we’ll explore what questions we should ask our patients before we perform an exam of their skin, how we fit a skin exam into our busy schedules, and when a photograph of a skin lesion might be of benefit. Our guest for this podcast is Emma F. Johnson, M.D., a dermatologist from the Mayo Clinic.  Connect with the Mayo Clinic’s School of Continuous Professional Development online at or on Twitter @MayoMedEd.

YDF Greatest Hits: Is “Multitasking” Possible? – Summer Refresh Edition (with Gloria Mark, PhD)

Feeling tethered to your screens? Doomscrolling much? Have you gotten that little message from your phone, ratting you out, informing you that "you spent an average of XX hours and xx minutes daily of screen time"?? Do you wish you could set some better boundaries with tech/social media/screens in general? Let's face it, our devices are here to stay. How can we make them work FOR US, instead of distracting us from the personal connections we need? How are we supposed to "multitask"?? Is the human brain even capable of such a feat?? Cue our expert in human-computer interaction (HCI), Gloria Mark, PhD! WE ARE SO FORTUNATE to be able to pick her brain about how to make OUR BRAINS better at prioritizing our precious mental currency: OUR ATTENTION. Dr. Mark is the author of Attention Span and Multitasking in the Digital Age, the Chancellor's Professor of Informatics at UC Irvine, and has published over 200 papers in top academic journals, and appeared in scores of platforms, including the New York Times, BBC, NPR, the Atlantic, and recently on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard (check it out, the episode is GREAT!) We are aware that we likely outkicked our coverage, and are SO HAPPY to share Dr. Mark's expertise with y'all. Strap in, pay attention, this is a can't-miss episode, friends! :) Topics in this episode include: The MYTH of multitasking. What is "distraction cost'? How attempting to "multitask" affects our brains and bodies (hint: stress!) Is it really the "notifications" on our phones that are distracting us, or is it something else? Are we really "victims of the algorithm" when it comes to social media? How can being "information rich" make us "attention poor"? How can we be aware of our "urges" to check our phones/email/computer and become more intentional in our use of devices? Learn more about Dr. Mark's work at her website. Her latest book, Attention Span, is available nationwide wherever books are sold! Learn more about her book here.
