The Bravery of the Brokenhearted – A Big Brothers Perspective on Grief From the Loss of a Sibling with Sanfilippo Syndrome with Noah Siedman

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 225 The Bravery of the Brokenhearted - A Big Brothers Perspective on Grief From the Loss of a Sibling with Sanfilippo Syndrome with Noah Siedman Noah Siedman was a big brother to Ben who had Sanfilippo Syndrome, a devastating disease that leads to childhood dementia and premature death. He joins me to talk about his sibling experience and dealing with grief. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS As a sibling under potential pressure to not be a burden, do you still carry those feelings even after Ben's passing? It's hard as a sibling to see everything your parents are facing that's out of your control. As a sibling, there's a need to be on top of your own care and your own emotions. There were no casual complaints in my family growing up. It was either a disaster or business as usual. Filling in that middle space where you have a bad day and want to talk about it didn't exist. We've had to work on that as a family because that's not how we've functioned.  What coping mechanisms help you to write and talk about your experience? I came to the realization that I was going to be emotionally vulnerable, which is uncomfortable. Knowing I would have to talk about my experience and brother, I had to accept it, put it out front, and get really good at talking about it comfortably. I got more comfortable talking about the progression of my brother's disease and my feelings around him, and I used it as a shield.  What would you say to the young person who is living the same life you were living and what questions should people ask that person? The first thing that I would say, and maybe the best thing to ask that person, is about their roles. When do you feel like a sibling? When do you feel like a caregiver? When do you feel like you're an advocate? When do you feel like you are just you? I got stuck in trying to be a lot of those things at once, where the easiest role to ignore was being just me. But everything you push down morphs into something worse. Frustration turns into resentment, fear turns into trepidation, sadness becomes melancholy.  What are the misconceptions people have about death? The biggest problem with grief is that no amount of experience is applicable. It defies the ability to be prepared for it or to use your past to help you cope. I don't think grief gets easier, I think you get better at it. Those that try to give advice to people that are grieving are hanging on to the idea that that time will heal. It's not that your grief goes away, it's that you get better at it. How has your relationship with your sister changed? Ben's death brought us closer and we do a good job of communicating despite handling things differently. There's no right or wrong way to navigate life with a sibling who has a genetic disorder, so we don't judge each other and we're honest with each other.  As a parent, how do you help siblings to have a better experience? Abandon the idea that you owe siblings normalcy. My parents put a lot of effort into delivering normal childhood experiences. Instead, put that energy into helping your children articulate what they want. More important than chasing normal is helping siblings decide what's important to them and how to pursue it.

Listen Again | 72: Marathons with Meaning

We’re cheering on runners in the 2024 Boston Marathon this week by having another listen to our episode featuring Nurse Practitioner, elite runner, and Guinness World Record holder, Samantha Roecker, FNP. A competitive runner and nurse, she has a *track record* (pun intended) of breaking barriers and addressing stigmas, and for the 2022 Boston Marathon, she combined her passion for nursing and running into mental health advocacy and raising awareness for healthcare workforce well-being. Inspired by British nurse and marathon record holder, Jessica Anderson, Sam embarked on a bold goal – breaking the Guinness World Record for fastest marathon run in a nurse’s uniform and raising thousands of dollars to support nurse well-being. In this episode, we talk with Samantha about her record-breaking run, the impact stigma has on seeking mental health services and preventing people from reaching their potential, the power of nurse-specific mental health support, and the surprising overlap between nursing and competitive running.    Find this episode’s resources at and for more information on podcast bundles, visit ANA’s Innovation Website at Have questions for the SEE YOU NOW team?

Navigating New Horizons: Understanding European Accreditation in CME

What challenges and opportunities await US-based CME providers looking to expand into Europe? As a CME provider, understanding Europe's accreditation landscape and cultural nuances is crucial for successfully delivering education to international audiences. In today’s episode of Write Medicine, Susan Yarbrough joins me in dissecting the complexities of CME in Europe and guiding us through the accreditation mosaic. We’ll explore key considerations and strategies for navigating European CME, including the need for a strong dose of cultural humility.  In episode 107, you’ll: 1. Gain insights into the differences between US and European CME accreditation systems 2. Learn practical advice for partnering with local organizations to deliver relevant education 3. Discover the importance of cultural humility and adaptability when expanding CME offerings internationally Tune in now to equip yourself with the knowledge and strategies needed to expand your CME programs confidently into Europe and beyond! Takeaways While European CME accreditation differs significantly from the US, focusing on approving activities rather than providers, the accreditation landscape in Europe is evolving, with a slow but steady movement towards alignment and reciprocity.  Reciprocal agreements allow for the exchange of CME credits, but disparities in accepting and using CPD credits across jurisdictions remain a concern. As a US-based CME provider, if you want to expand your offerings to Europe and beyond, as a first step, research the accreditation requirements and cultural nuances of your target European countries or regions. Education providers who want to successfully deliver CME in Europe must cultivate cultural humility as a key ingredient. As a US-based provider, you’ll need to understand local guidelines, perform a gap analysis and needs assessment, and have a local footprint to effectively deliver education that is appropriately accredited and tailored to the European audience.

Is the Aluminum in Antiperspirants Harmful?

In the 1990s, a chain email circulated around the series-of-tubes we called the internet, suggesting that aluminum-containing antiperspirants clogged your sweat pores, thus disallowing your body to “purge itself of toxins”, and those "toxins" would accumulate in your axillary lymph nodes, and increase your risk of breast cancer. Yikes. Predating the "antiperspirant-will-give-you-breast-cancer" chain email scare, animal studies in the 1960s suggested a link between aluminum in antiperspirants (which were just becoming popular in postwar America) and Alzheimer's disease. These rabbit studies showed brain neurotoxic effects when the animals were exposed to very high levels of aluminum. In the past several decades, researchers have investigated whether these loose correlations/hypotheses held any water (spoiler: they don't). In today's episode, Your Doctor Friends want to debunk and demystify the data around the potential "risks' around aluminum-containing antiperspirants! Should you ditch the standard roll-on? Switch to a "natural" alternative? OR.. is this all just a case of "all stink and no fire"?? Sources for today's episode include: The NIH National Cancer Institute's fact sheet page on antiperspirants and breast cancer. A 2017 review in Deutsches Arzteblatt International journal titled "The Health Effects of Aluminum Exposure." A 2019 comprehensive review on sweat gland function by Lindsay B. Baker PhD, director of the Gatorade Sport Science Institute. A Scientific American article titled "Fact or Fiction: Antiperspirants Do More Than Block Sweat". A 2021 Canadian study published in NeuroToxicology investigating association between aluminum in drinking water and risk of Alzheimer's disease risk. A Healthline article from 2022 titled "Is There a Link Between Aluminum and Alzheimer's?". A 2021 NYT article titled "Are Natural Deodorants Really Better For You?". AND FINALLY- a 2017 article from The World Textile Conference called "A novel washing algorithm for underarm stain removal" - which was the closest thing to scientific data explaining WHAT MAKES YELLOW ARMPIT STAINS!
