Improving Inclusion Practices in Schools with the Inclusive Educator – Bre Gastaldi

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 153 Improving Inclusion Practices in Schools with the Inclusive Educator - Bre Gastaldi Bre Gastaldi is known as the Inclusive Educator and she teaches school districts how to implement inclusive practices. She's also a special education teacher. She joins me for a discussion on diversity and inclusion in all aspects of education and the school setting.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Can you tell us about yourself and your work as an inclusion expert? I got into special education by way of my own neurodivergence. I was diagnosed with ADHD in middle school, studied psychology as an undergrad and I started understanding myself better and fell in love with psychology and working with kids. I got my masters degree and began teaching, eventually becoming an inclusion specialist. I was also looking for ways to include my students in a variety of activities. My students excelled because of it, the school culture shifted and I began working with other teachers and administrators to improve inclusion practices. I have since branched off and became the Inclusive Educator.  What is the biggest misconception around inclusion? Inclusion isn't a program because true inclusion exists within your child's general education classroom- it's not a class they go to. If only certain students can be in an inclusion program, it isn't inclusive. Inclusion is an undeniable sense of belonging from the time a child walks into a classroom. It's a feeling of belonging and being valued and celebrated.  How does inclusion affect a general education student? A 2008 analysis of several studies found that inclusion had a neutral to positive impact on neurotypical students in 81% percent of studies. When there's an inclusive classroom and culture, all students are learning more. School districts doing a good job being inclusive reveals an increase of graduation rates. Inclusion impacts general education students in that they improve in academics, but they're also socializing with a reduced sense of fear, they generally have a stronger self esteem and better sense of self. What are your top tips for inclusion? Let your child lead because they will tell you one way or another when they're ready to participate more. As a parent, be intentional about making positive connections with the multidisciplinary team. If your child isn't being included, start slowly with focusing on what their interests are.

Preventing Digital Healthcare Fraud with Cybersecurity Solutions While Growing Patient Access

September 21, 2022: Now more than ever, healthcare organizations must give patients easier access to their health data and focus on reducing friction. The challenge comes with balancing the need for improved user experience with the importance of adopting appropriate security measures to guard sensitive data. During this solution showcase with Lane Williams, Director Solutions Engineering at (F5) and (Jason LaValle), Senior Solutions Architect at (Sirius Healthcare (A CDW Company)) we cover: • Attack evolution – Discover how attackers evolve their online schemes to take advantage of inherent vulnerabilities on web and mobile applications. • Countermeasure efficacy – Address the whole spectrum of automated application attacks and digital fraud abuse by abandoning traditional point solutions. • Identity and access management – Understand how healthcare organizations can protect PHI and their brand without compromising user experience or patient access to personal information. What kind of attacks are coming for healthcare? What are the inherent vulnerabilities that they're going after? Are we seeing a difference between web attacks and mobile attacks? Are there different types of attacks for different types of devices? How do you create a framework that addresses all of the different attacks? Having dual factor is critical but no longer good enough. You also need protection on the edge. What opportunities do we have to identify fraud within our medical devices? Is there an architecture we should consider to have in place? Key Points: A web application firewall product is very important because you can see exactly what the user is doing Attackers are increasing their sophistication by writing AI programs to basically duplicate the effects Zero trust is not a one stop thing. It's more of a journey. IOMT - Internet of Medical Things (WHITEPAPER: How to Protect Patient Data and Claims Payment Integrity in Healthcare) (F5) (Sirius Healthcare (A CDW Company))

DOCSF22: Integrating the Future of Health

In this episode, Daniel Kraft, founder of Exponential Medicine and Digital.Health, and chair of the XPRIZE Pandemic & Health Alliance talks about the internet of medical things and the future of medicine. Daniel reminisces on a TedTalk about medicine’s future and ten years later, he finds that we are in a new age of digitally connected and mobile health. For him, COVID brought transformation in an accelerated way in diagnostics, therapeutics, crowdsourcing trials, and beyond. Daniel believes the future of medicine consists in bringing multiple technologies together. He talks about developing technologies like digital twins, quantum computing, 3D printing, augmented reality, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence. He points out how smartphones today have become a powerful digital tool for individuals’ health as well. He thinks of digital health as the ability to take all new data, integrate it, make sense of it, and personalize it to the individual, clinician, or healthcare system needed. Daniel argues one of the challenges for medicine is keeping up with the innovation, which is why he’s built Digital.Health as a platform to address that problem. He thinks navigating the vast amount of applications and the data created from them and smart devices are getting more complicated. He talks about how the focus should be on producing insights and integrating them into the workflow. This information can provide an improvement in interaction with patients and accessibility. Daniel speaks about digital determinants of health as a new factor to take into account to optimize prevention, diagnostics, and therapeutics. He believes all these digital tools will upscale the healthcare space to a new golden age and democratize access. Listen to what Daniel Kraft, a noted visionary and futurist, has to say about creating the future of health, medicine, and orthopedics at DOCSF. Learn about the internet of medical things and why Daniel is certain that collaboration between innovators will bring forward a new age for health!
