Amelia Randolph Campbell's Recipe for Hope

Today, I speak with actor turned thought leader and coach Amelia Randolph Campbell.  Amelia has crisscrossed the country, from her childhood in New Mexico to college in New England and an acting career in New York City. She made her way from the stage to sales and now back to the stage as an inspirational speaker. And that’s just her point — to live is to take on different roles. In her forthcoming book, “The Conscious Actor,” Amelia talks about how the actor’s mindset can serve as an effective personal growth tool. It can also help one cope with health crises. Amelia’s here today to tell how, take on life's big questions, and share her recipe for hope.For more information, visit https://OffScrip.com and follow @MatthewZachary, @VaxOnPod, and @OffScripHealth on Twitter. See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

The Right Kind of Medical Nerd: Dr. Maulik Majmudar

Today, I welcome Dr. Maulik Majmudar, a cardiologist, Chief Medical Officer, and Co-Founder at Biofourmis, a rapidly growing virtual care delivery and digital therapeutics company. He dropped by the studio to bond over fathering boy/girl twins like me and to dive further down the rabbit hole of the modern-day train wreck that is America's fabulous healthcare system. Before his current position, Maulik was Medical Officer for a small, relatively unknown company named Amazon, where he led the development and launch of Amazon's first health membership service. As an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School, he was responsible for the identification, validation, and implementation of digital health solutions to improve care delivery and the patient and provider experience. That sounds like mumbo-jumbo, but we really do get into what this means in our conversation. Follow Maulik on Twitter @mdmajmudar and enjoy the show.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Matthew Zachary

My name is Matthew Zachary. I am your advocate.

Why? Because when you enter the "Shit Happens" store, there's no one to greet you. I spent most of my 20s in that store. For those like me, who are lucky enough to have completed their shopping, I believe it to be incumbent upon us to become the greeters we wished we had.

In 2007, I founded Stupid Cancer and gave birth to the young adult cancer movement. The Stupid Cancer Show broke all the rules and gave a voice to millions.

And now it's time to go OffScrip. Join me on this new adventure as I continue to galvanize the patient voice, blow up the status quo, and make big dents in the universe.

After all, we are all very fortunate to not have ordinary lives.
