Fear of vaccines grows with the need for medical ethics

"While individual doctors have obligations to both the individual and public health, their first concern is their patients. And these decisions have to acknowledge fears and respect the stance. Providers must balance reassurance with acknowledgment, care, data, and the intent to 'do no harm.' It is undeniable that the COVID vaccination has saved countless lives and will be crucial to come out of this crisis. In particular, the OAZv has many advantages for global use. But the success of a vaccination program should not expend of public trust or we may jeopardize the future of global public health." Mallika Sekhar is a hematologist-oncologist. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "Fear of vaccines grows with the need for medical ethics." (

Will the COVID Omicron variant change the world again?

"The variant keeps me up at night a little bit because it has 32 mutations in the spike protein, in contrast to the Delta mutation. But it's not just the mutations. In terms of biological plausibility, it's plausible that it could be more evasive against immunity. Not just vaccines, but potentially reinfection. What really worries me is seeing the signals line up in the wrong way. It first started in Botswana, but it's surging not just in one part of South Africa, but across six different provinces in South Africa, all at once." Eric Feigl-Ding is an epidemiologist and health economist. He can be reached on Twitter @DrEricDing. He shares his story and discusses the new COVID Omicron variant.

Grieving our collective loss with compassion

"Cultivating compassion for ourselves and others is a practice in which we release judgment, anger and heal our emotional wounds. We can then move forward to a version of a better world where we have evolved to a new beginning. Change is always happening, and that is our constant. What we focus on while it happens is what will determine how much we will suffer or thrive as we go through it. So, as we emerge through this time, whether as a health care worker, a parent, a newlywed or whatever your role is, let us stay present in what we have gained and be hopeful of the world that we will create tomorrow. Let us focus not on what seems to be an obvious loss or grieving process but one in which we can find introspection, wisdom, strength, and a new set of purpose. It is in this that we can evolve personally and as a collective. It is not easy. There is a lot of discomfort in shedding our old self and grieving our collective loss. Yet if we do this with compassion, we can find comfort knowing hope is waiting for us on the other side." Diana Londoño is a urologist. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "Grieving our collective loss with compassion." (

To Aaron Rodgers, from a physician and Packers fan

"Mr. Rodgers, I’m glad you’re feeling well. This isn’t altogether unsurprising given your younger age and elite physical fitness (though cases in young unvaccinated people can and have become severe) and I hope you continue to feel well as you quarantine. The medical and scientific community works on data, lots and lots of data. The process of running clinical trials and publishing data is rigorously vetted and peer-reviewed. We do not have good data that supports the use of ivermectin. In fact, a couple of preprint studies have been removed from the internet due to inaccuracy and flaws in their data. Furthermore, I fear you are missing — and propagating — a very important point. We don’t just get vaccinated for ourselves, but for the greater good. As I’ve said, I’m glad you’re feeling well. As an unvaccinated young, healthy person you pose a greater risk of spreading the virus to the portion of the very young, very old, and immunocompromised population who do not share in your level of fitness than if you were fully vaccinated, especially with the travel required of you and going maskless. Some of these people make up your fan base. As someone who has been part of a team for his whole life, I wish you would see these individuals as part of your larger “team.” We have to all be in this together to achieve our goals of herd immunity just as you have had to work together with your teammates to win games and titles. I wish Mr. Rodgers a speedy recovery and hope he uses this time to reevaluate some of his recent statements and their possible repercussions. I’ll be watching and cheering on Jordan Love and the rest of the team." Allison Neitzel is a physician and public health student. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "To Aaron Rodgers, from a physician and Packers fan." (

Using AI in the Operating Room

In this episode, we are privileged to host Sanjeev Agrawal, President and CEO at LeanTaas. This is a healthcare software company that increases patient access to medical care. When Stefano first met Sanjeev at the first DocSF Conference, the company was just a start-up. Today, the company has grown into an established and well-funded company that is changing how we manage hospitals across the country.   Sanjeev recounts his healthcare entrepreneurial journal, which began when his team successfully solved a Stanford Cancer Institute problem. He discusses machine learning applications and gives excellent real-world examples of problems where machine learning can be applied. We also tackled the data they are looking for to solve problems and where machine learning is going in the future.    This conversation is fascinating, not just on how to solve complex healthcare problems utilizing accurate data, because there's more to it than that, so make sure to tune in!   About Sanjeev Agrawal Sanjeev serves as the President and Chief Operating Officer for LeanTaaS. Sanjeev was Google's first Head of Product Marketing. Since then, he has led three successful startups - CEO at Aloqa (acquired by Motorola), VP Products & Marketing at TellMe Networks (acquired by Microsoft), and Founder & CEO at Collegefeed (acquired by After College).   Sanjeev graduated with a BS and MS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT. He started his career at McKinsey & Company and Cisco Systems before joining Google. Sanjeev is a Forbes contributor and also writes on his blog at He is an avid squash player and has been named by Becker's Hospital Review as one of the top entrepreneurs innovating in Healthcare.    Key Takeaways:  LeanTaas cannot create volume, but it can help clinics and hospitals optimize patients physicians should be seeing.   The EHR has a historical record of all surgeries performed in the past by the block owner.  90% of a data science problem is the data. So science is important until you can extract meaning from it.   Most healthcare visits are not so simple.   Small data can make a world of difference.   Once you have clean data, then you can apply your algorithm.    Resources Website: LinkedIn: Twitter: @saagrawa

140: Rare Diseases Lesotho Founder Nthabeleng Ramoeli

Nthabeleng Ramoeli was born in the small southern African country of Lesotho. At the age of 12, she began to experience chronic pain and subluxation of her joints, in addition to extreme skin elasticity, GI and lung issues, and anapyhlaxis. These symptoms persisted through her admittance to university, where test after test came back inconclusive. So, she began her own research…and stumbled upon Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS). While her diagnosis was eventually confirmed, none of the practitioners in her region knew what EDS was — or how to treat it. She found herself arguing with doctors every time she had contact with the medical system, as most couldn’t admit the limit of their own skills and knowledge. In 2014, she was in an accident in which she sustained over 10 broken bones down her spine, among other injuries. A spinal specialist informed her that EDS had saved her life: her joints were so hypermobile, the impact hadn’t shattered her spinal cord…and while she spent close to a year in rehabilitation, she can walk again today. In 2017, she founded Rare Diseases Lesotho Association (RDLA) in order to serve others living with rare disease in her corner of the world — by raising awareness, providing care and education services, and bringing those who feel alone into community. In 2020, this led to the creation of the Rare Diseases African Alliance, which also includes the Rare Diseases Namibian Alliance. As an activist and advocate for EDS and other rare diseases, Nthabeleng has found ways to cope with her diagnosis despite the hardships she faces — and is fueled by helping others live as comfortably and fully as possible with rare disease. Tune in as Nthabeleng shares: when she first started experiencing symptoms of EDS, and how she was diagnosed how she struggled with doctors who didn’t understand her diagnosis and treatment how her constellation of symptoms finally made sense when she discovered EDS in her research her experience in a psychiatric hospital, which further proved her diagnosis was not in her head the degree to which her organs are involved in her EDS type how her diagnosis has impacted her relationships how and why she founded RDLA how disability has transformed her presence in the world how you can support RDLA’s efforts her advice for others living with invisible disability

Ignoring jaw pain comes at too high a price

"The COVID-19 pandemic challenged health care systems and patients’ personal economic capacity, leading to approximately six million adults losing their dental insurance. Additionally, the World Health Organization and the American Dental Association recommended dentists to limit their practices to emergency and urgent dental care. In the list of these diagnoses requiring emergency care, jaw pain (temporomandibular disorder (TMD) that includes several clinical problems involving the temporomandibular joint and group of muscles that help with chewing and other associated structures), was not included. This is not acceptable." Soumya Padala is a craniofacial orthodontist. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "Delta surge warning: Ignoring jaw pain comes at too high a price." (

61: Reporting Powers: Insights in Action

While the recent pandemic caused devastating loss of life and strained health systems, it also brought into sharp focus nurses’ pivotal role in healthcare and their enormous, and largely untapped potential to shape patient care, rethink how healthcare is organized and where it’s delivered.   Moved by the unprecedented stress and strain on nurses and our health systems, Johnson & Johnson, in partnership with the American Nurses Association and the American Organization for Nursing Leadership, set out to understand the various ways that the nursing profession evolved amidst the pandemic. From the stories and data emerged the pointed Accelerating Nursing, Transforming Healthcare report -- one that offers a deeper understanding on how the pandemic transformed nursing practice and how the momentum of these innovations can steer us to a much better and preferred future of the profession.   In this second of a multi-episode series centered on the Accelerating Nursing, Transforming Healthcare report we go behind the scenes on a “listening adventure” and hear how the pandemic changed people’s access to care, their care needs, and the impact on the well-being of the healthcare workforce, and learn through thought-provoking stories, experiences, and fine details how three nurse changemakers are weaving the needed innovations into their organizations, care delivery, and workforce to Accelerate Nursing and Transform Healthcare.

Racism in Pain Medicine

Guest: Natalie H. Strand, M.D. (@DrNatStrand) Host: Amit K. Ghosh, M.D. (@AmitGhosh006) Racial biases can influence diagnosis and treatment decisions. It is important to normalize implicit biases and be aware of our own biases to reduce disparities and improve health care for patients. Joining us today is Natalie Strand, M.D., a consultant in the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, AZ. She will discuss the unique, relevant and timely topic of racism in pain medicine, including the occurrence of racism in medicine at all levels – from patient care, diagnoses and outcomes to professional development of physicians. She describes our responsibility and how, if we want to engage in anti-racism, we must do it at all levels in medicine. Additional Resources: Strand, N. H., Mariano, E. R., Goree, J.
