Evaluating Adrenal Incidentalomas

Guest: Irina Bancos, M.D. (@IrinaBancos) Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD) The widespread use of CT and MRI scans has resulted in frequent serendipitous findings, including adrenal nodules. When these nodules are found, two questions need to be answered. Is the nodule malignant and is this nodule metabolically active? This podcast will address these incidentally found adrenal nodules, also known as adrenal incidentalomas. We’ll review when these nodules should be investigated, the likelihood they represent a malignancy and how to assess if they’re metabolically active. Our guest for this podcast is Irina Bancos, M.D., an endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic.

34: Bringing Clinical Trials to the Patient, with Jodi Akin, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Hawthorne Effect, Inc.

Meet Jodi Akin: Jodi Akin is the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Hawthorne Effect, a software service that  streamlines and decentralizes clinical trials. She is an Angle Investor and Advisor for Astia, Board  member for 510 Kardiac Devices, Inc., and the Chief Scientific Advisor for PiCardia, Inc. Previously,  she was the Vice President of Global Clinical Affairs at Edwards Lifesciences LLC. Jodi received a  Bachelor’s in Diplomacy, Economics and International Affairs from Georgetown University, and a  Master of Science in Nursing from Pace University. Key Insights: The Hawthorne Effect is changing the ecosystem of clinical trials. Defining Entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is an attitude, not a stage of a company, according to Jodi. She didn’t set out to simply found a company, rather she felt a gravitational pull, a compulsion, to fix an aspect of healthcare. (10:39) Improved Patient Adherence. Hawthorne Effect brings clinical trials to the patient’s own home, rather than requiring the patient to go to a physical research institution. This removes transportation challenges for the patient, which increases adherence. Jodi cites that 97-98% of their patients adhere to clinical trials. (15:48) Hawthorne Heroes. Decentralized clinical trials are made possible by a gig network of medical professionals. This allows for geographically diverse trials, and these Heroes have additional opportunities for certification and training for different types of trials, with roles that range from patient visits to trial investigators. (18:03)This episode is hosted by Gary Bisbee, Ph.D. He is the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Think  Medium. Relevant Links:Learn more about Hawthorne Effect Read “Startup Improves Clinical Trial Process To Ensure Better Healthcare For All” by  Forbes Listen to “Hawthorne Effect Founder and CEO Jodi Akin” on VatorNews podcasts

Building Wealth While Knowing Your Worth with Lauren Bell

There's no question that we all want to be wealthy. But how do you go about building wealth while knowing your worth? It can be tricky, but it's definitely not impossible.  In this week’s episode of High Performance Nursing, I have a fascinating conversation with Lauren Bell, a registered nurse who is also a consciousness coach, helping healthcare professionals in building wealth while knowing their self-worth. According to Lauren, one of the main things that get in the way of healthcare professionals achieving wealth is their own self-worth. She explains that a lot of healthcare professionals have been taught to be "givers" and not "takers." As a result, they often have a hard time asking for what they're worth or charging what they're worth. If you are a healthcare professional who wants to build wealth but doesn't know where to start, this episode is for you! You will learn how to shift your mindset around wealth and begin taking actionable steps towards building the life you want. WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: All about Lauren Bell (00:27) Lauren’s career vision (01:37) Evolving as a leader (04:18) Pivoting through various paths (09:17) Negotiating your salary (15:08) Making more money (21:16) Making money versus being happy (26:10) Building wealth outside of your profession (28:10) The benefits of outsourcing (30:31) Bringing more abundance in the clinical life (32:09) Why should you plan ahead of time? (36:19) The mindset consciousness perspective (40:59) Preceptorship supervision within the workforce (47:31) Honoring emotions (53:37) Rapid-fire questions with Lauren (59:25) CONNECT WITH LAUREN BELL Connect with Lauren on Facebook.

Are my coping skills a result of my emergency medicine training?

"We’re encouraged to mentally rehearse life-saving procedures for conditions that occur so rarely we might go our entire career without performing them. And the reality is that I could spend every minute of my free time this way and still have an unexpected situation arise during my next shift. So, is there a way, as experts in disaster preparedness, to accept what we cannot control? Thankfully time, medication, and therapy helped me out of a very dark place, and the journey has prompted me to reconsider my priorities. Tessa and I only meet about once a month now. With her continued help, I’m hoping to find a way forward in the specialty I love, but with the understanding that I’m no longer willing to sacrifice my own mental wellness."

Healing Journey from Pregnant with Breast Cancer to Vibrant Mompreneur: Kristen Chester

Walk through Kristen Chester’s healing journey as she describes learning about her positive breast cancer diagnosis when she was 6.5 months pregnant with her son.  Thankfully Kristen had the absolute best mindset for this journey and her son is healthy and thriving.   With a strong family history of breast cancer, Kristen first expressed concern very early in her pregnancy that there may be an issue.  It was initially brushed off as “normal”.    Kristen then had to take on chemo treatments with her son still in utero and continued aggressive treatment as soon as he was born.  She then had a newborn, chemo treatments, and had to undergo a double mastectomy with reconstruction.   All the while, she utilized her time in the hospital while healing to research and create a business!  The business idea of bright, colorful, vibrant caftans and jumpsuits came about as she just didn’t look and feel like herself through her chemotherapy with the hair loss, and the fact she was wearing oversized men’s t-shirts and baggy sweatpants.  There was a need for sustainable clothing that would help her and other women feel powerful, strong, and beautiful with bold, bright, colorful patterns.   This is the journey behind the creation of Casa Danu. Learn more about Kristen and check out her clothing here: https://www.casadanu.com/   ___________________   Guest Bio: Kristen is the founder/"chief caftanista" of Casa Danu - an up-and-coming sustainable women's wear brand focused on creating bold, pattern-forward clothing that helps women bring out the most colorful, enlivened, and powerful versions of themselves.    Kristen is a recovering workaholic who left her successful and high-powered corporate gig to pursue her passion after being diagnosed with Breast Cancer.    Kristen is learning how to navigate the world of being an entrepreneur, while simultaneously being a mom and cancer survivor. Her mission is to help other women find and unearth their bold, vibrant spirit, no matter what challenges they are going through. ___________________ Subscribe to this podcast and download your favorite episodes to listen to later: AppleSpotify RSS Feed ___________________   ⚕️ Are you a woman healthcare professional who is struggling to juggle everything in your personal and professional life?   💯 I understand!

Residency interviews and the inner muse

"Have you ever wondered how many times death has not come, but could have? On the corner of Church Street and Dubuque how close was I, pausing to assess an ice-sheeted puddle just before a woman turns, her head turned too, searching for what? A snack? A phone? A child crying? The summer I almost drowned, my mother said no you will not, and I did not. Hotel pool, a single cool eye seeking, floaters upstairs in the room. Every backseat I slid into under the cloaks of dark and youth and rebellion with every driver that palmed the wheel like a dare—I will not be struck down tonight. How many near-deaths have I walked towards without hesitation, another door, another elevator another escalator on its way up. And now—every mouth and nose just a house for fear. Oh, but how I dare to smile." Liana Meffert is a medical student. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "It goes without saying: a residency interview."
