A 15-minute relationship fix

"Depression involves withdrawal, withdrawal from oneself and others. Feeling safe enough in a relationship to reveal our innermost feelings safely is connective and should be considered a valued part of the anti-depressant lifestyle. Continued relationship satisfaction is based on respectful openness and validation, the kind of communication that built love in the early days. To do otherwise is to risk a relationship with no real relating, and to miss out on a factor that may not only be part of the treatment for depression but a powerful deterrent." Joel Block is a psychologist and author of The 15-Minute Relationship Fix: A Clinically-Proven Strategy That Will Repair and Strengthen Your Love Life. He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "Personal intimacy as an overlooked antidepressant." Did you enjoy today’s episode?

76: Why Work in Healthcare?

During the summer of 2022, SEE YOU NOW has been on the road meeting new ideas and people and sharing stories about what we’ve experienced in a wide range of healthcare encounters. In this episode we invite you join us at the Aspen Ideas: Health conference.  Aspen’s 60+ sessions are designed to engage a broad audience in the issues that shape our lives, challenge our times, and introduce us to leaders and ideas that chart pathways toward   better health for all. Building on the understanding that reliable, safe, quality healthcare for all depends on a well-trained, energetic, and abundant workforce, the health and wellbeing of clinicians took center stage at Aspen. Despite schools of nursing, medicine, and public health attracting record numbers of qualified applicants, many highly trained health professionals are leaving the field. In this lively panel discussion led by physician and former NYC Health commissioner Dave Chokshi, MD, seasoned clinicians Sandra Lindsay, RN, MBA, Adrian Billings, MD and Siobhan Wescott, MD MPH speak candidly about the exhaustion, debt, and moral injury plaguing the healthcare workforce; the political, financial, and workforce solutions they advocate for; and in spite of -- or because of -- the numerous system-level challenges, why working in healthcare remains a rewarding and promising career choice

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.

Walk to reduce your loneliness and improve your well-being

"Just before the pandemic, I walked 96 miles (154.5 km) in seven days on the West Highland Way in Scotland, though I was hardly alone in this endeavor. About 250 people start the walk each day, including the amazing group of primary women that I walked with, indicative of both the attraction of the trail and the popularity of this form of physical activity. All types of people were walking. There were young people and old people, some fit and some not so obviously so. The walk was exhilarating and at the same time hard and very long. Much of the great feeling of satisfaction I had at the end of every day was the feeling of achievement at having physically and emotionally pushed my own limits." Paula Rochon is a geriatrician. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "Reduce your loneliness, improve your well-being, and take the first step."

#167: Leveraging Personal Change and Stability for TRU Healthcare Leaders

In this episode, we talk about leveraging personal Change and Stability and why it's important for Thriving, Resilient, and Unstoppable (TRU) healthcare leaders. We know leaders deal with ongoing challenges and changes daily, and their attention has been on their team and organization. In fact, many healthcare leaders have let go of their personal rituals and routines that bring Stability because of the workload and other challenges brought on by the pandemic. The thing is, without Change and Stability, you'll feel powerless and stuck, and you're at risk of change happening to you instead of you leading the change in your own life. Therefore, Change and Stability is an important personal tension or polarity to manage now with the current healthcare situation. In this podcast, we talk about the importance of recognizing Change and Stability as a polarity and why it's an important tension to manage in healthcare, not only at the organization level but at the personal level, too. We also talk about some actionable steps to help you create personal Change and Stability and some of the negative consequences of not leveraging this polarity.

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!

Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome and long COVID

"ME/CFS is a complex multi-system illness that destroys lives (essentially killing the person yet leaving them alive).  It leaves patients with unimaginable fatigue, post-exertional malaise (meaning that minor exertion makes them feel worse), cognitive deficits, cardiovascular dysfunction, gastrointestinal malfunctions, unrefreshing sleep, pain, and much more. As a person who has lived with ME/CFS for 13 years, I urge everyone to avoid getting it at all costs.  I also want to protect people like myself from getting sick with COVID and having our illnesses worsen to even graver severities."

Emerging Femtech for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month | Oriana Papin-Zoghbi

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest gynecological cancer today. With the much-needed innovation in ovarian cancer research, it’s crucial women understand the complexity and potential for change in this disease. For Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, we spoke with Oriana Papin-Zoghbi, the CEO and Co-founder of AOA Dx. AOA Dx is a biotech company focused on early-stage ovarian cancer detection, actively spreading awareness and working toward solutions for women’s health issues. In this episode, we discuss current insights into ovarian cancer research and prognosis. Oriana shares some ovarian cancer stories and what AOA Dx is doing to help women catch the disease early. We cover the average ovarian cancer survival rate, some symptoms of ovarian cancer, and ways to advocate for better testing in women’s health. Discussed in this episode: Ovarian cancer statistics  What can women do to catch early signs of ovarian cancer? Difficulties doctors and women face in ovarian cancer diagnosis  Current diagnostic testing processes  The founding story of AOA Dx Why has it been so hard to get a diagnosis for ovarian cancer? Where AOA Dx is headed next Ways to medically advocate for yourself if you feel something’s wrong “The biggest thing I would say to women is: listen to your body. If you know that something is off, advocate for yourself.

4 steps to de-escalate hostile people

"The boundaries of unacceptable behavior have eroded in the past few years. Politicians, law enforcement, movie stars, health care providers, the health care system, and society, in general, are all acting badly occasionally. I’m amazed but no longer surprised every time it happens. Patients and family members behaving badly have captured headlines lately. I’m sad that in addition to Code Blue and Code Red, my hospital now has a Code Purple, indicating out-of-control parents. And I’m saddened that now, teaching residents how to deal with unruly people is a routine part of my curriculum." Ann F. Beach is a pediatric hospitalist.

In this episode, I chat with the amazing Dr. Debbie Bradley and her experience with walking away from medicine and her shift into something that brought her so much more gratification. However, the process of walking away from a practice that you’ve been invested in for years is never easy and it is one that I often equate to the cycle of grief. For many of us, medicine is something that we’ve devoted a large chunk of our lives to, and the idea of leaving that behind - although it is gratifying - comes with a bit of a mourning process as we say goodbye and transition to the next chapter. By allowing ourselves to experience the cycle of grief and feel all the feels that it brings with it, you open the door to finding your identity in who you actually are as opposed to what you’re doing. As doctors, we have to identify ourselves without our practice and that is very difficult after you have dedicated your time to becoming a doctor in your field of practice.  Drawing a boundary for what is best for you and your mental, physical, and emotional health can be hard especially when it’s with something that you’ve dedicated your career to. But, that’s OK. Hard doesn’t make it wrong, hard is part of life. You will always take your experiences and knowledge with you to the next chapter and it will never completely leave you. The other difficult component of being a physician and deciding to take a stand for yourself to move forward to the next best thing is often found in how it will impact others. Who will care for your patients? What about your team? These are difficult pills to swallow when you’re trying to do the best thing for you, but we have to continue to remind ourselves that we’ve served and will continue to serve others as doctors in whatever area we go to and it’s OK to leave people pleasing in the past and do what’s best for you.  When you can show up as the best version of yourself and embrace your identity after overcoming the cycle of grief and the fear of failure, that is when you can be empowered to do your best work and advance the field of medicine.  “I am the CEO of my life.” Dr. Debbie Bradley In this episode: [02:35] Welcome to the show, Dr. Debbie Bradley!
