The Life-Changing Impact of Neuro-Optometry

While little known outside of the vision care sector, neuro-optometry is a fast-growing specialized field in which doctors treat patients with vision complaints and/or double vision due to concussions, brain injury or other neurological issues.   Dr. Jacqueline Theis, OD, FAOO, a leader in this burgeoning field, says the need for neuro-optometrist professionals “is expanding incredibly” as the field overall has grown broader in lock step with the recent surge in research into vision, visual vestibular therapy, and brain injury. “A lot of this is trying to figure out what can I do as an optometrist to help [people] to functionally see better,” says Theis, who is internationally recognized for diagnosis and management of oculomotor dysfunction in concussion, as well as prismatic correction of acquired and developmental double vision.  Listen to her story and follow her career path as she relates how early sports concussions led to her passion for helping others see the world more clearly.  To learn more about Dr.Jacqueline Theis and neuro-optometry visit click here

HCP Entrepreneurship: Making a Difference in Medicine

Over the past few decades, healthcare providers have been compelled to move from the traditional idea of medicine where “physicians take care of patients” to today’s model where increasingly “providers take care of insured lives.” This loss of connectivity between a patient and their doctor has worn away the fabric of what medicine used to be. Seeking alternative models and innovations, physician-business leaders Dr. Arlen Meyers and Dr. Jeffrey Hausfeld co-founded the Society for Physician Entrepreneurs (SOPE) to empower physicians and other professionals to innovate healthcare through entrepreneurship. This is their story.  To learn more about SOPE and to get in touch go to: https://www.sopenet.org Medicine in America is intended for U.S. audiences.

How One Doctor Transitioned to a Successful Medical Cannabis Specialty

After beginning her career in pediatric emergency medicine, a taxing yet rewarding medical field, Dr. Bonni Goldstein finally hit the burnout challenge that many physicians today experience. After taking time off, she made an abrupt career transition about 10 years ago and immersed herself in studying the endocannabinoid system, the recently discovered system that regulates and controls many critical bodily functions. After becoming fascinated by the potential, Dr. Goldstein launched Canna-Centers Wellness & Education practice in Southern California, and now calls the field of medical cannabis "extremely rewarding work." Her practice has helped thousands of adults and children with serious or chronic conditions improve their quality of life. Her latest book -- Cannabis is Medicine: How Medical Cannabis and CBD are Healing Everything from Anxiety to Chronic Pain -- was published by Little, Brown Spark in September 2020.
