388: Empowerment with Dr. Erika Aragona DO

On the road to becoming a doctor, we spend hours and hours studying and learning all the things books tell us we need to know. But, even though we bury ourselves in knowledge, there are some things that aren’t discussed in the textbooks. What we learn about women’s health in medical school leaves out the struggles women face in their health journey while navigating a career. You know, those little things like being pregnant, giving birth, and breastfeeding all while holding down a job? You won’t find that in your textbook index. In my talk with Dr. Erika, she discusses how empathy changed how she practices medicine and how approaching the difficulties that women face with compassion can change the way we practice medicine. The difficulty of being a woman is not only limited to patients but extends to the doctors in med school as well. Even though women make up the majority of medical school students, there is a lack of space for the responsibilities that women face. The focus needs to shift in the face of new medical students who are told they need to delay parenthood to achieve residency in prestigious programs. Success doesn’t have to be limited to parenting or a career, you can have both. It’s about what makes you happy.  Ultimately, It all comes back to taking care of yourself. We have to find our passions and hold on to them through our journey with medicine to avoid burning out. The happiness and energy level of doctors impact every single patient we see and our mental and physical health have to come first before we can care for anyone else.  “What I’m trying to bring to the scene is positivity in medicine, cheerfulness in medicine but also raising the voices of women who need to be celebrated.” Dr. Erika Aragona In this episode: [02:12] Welcome to the show, Dr. Aragona! [03:04] She shares her background and what she is passionate about. [06:06] She believes that women need to see other women succeed and stand up so they know what’s possible. [08:10] They talk about the bias women face in medical school. [12:37] Going home happy and healthy from work is a definition of success. [15:01] Women physicians want to know that they are being heard and be happy. [16:03] “A happy doctor is a productive doctor.” [17:59] She talks about why starting the conversation is so important. [21:13] She shares what she believes you need to do to come from a empowered place.

387: Commercial Real Estate with Dr. Cherry Chin

As physicians, we are often burdened with wearing the white coat as an identity instead of just a profession.  Yes, we are doctors, but we are so much more than that! I had a wonderful visit with my return guest, Dr. Cherry Chin, where we discussed how doctors can be multifaceted and lean into setting themselves up for success through real estate investment. The options that begin to open up to us once we lean into something else have offered so much freedom. For instance, the success that Dr. Cherry has experienced through the last four years of real estate investment have presented her with the option of being able to scale back to part time medicine and experience more freedom in her life.  The beautiful thing about having investments that are putting passive income back into our lives is that we can begin to focus on our legacies and what we want to leave behind as people as opposed to just trying to survive.  When we think about real estate investment, we often think of rental houses and maintaining our own properties and finding our own tenants. While that’s a common way to invest in real estate and generate passive income, there are options to invest passively as well. Commercial real estate is Dr. Cherry’s preferred type of investment, because you literally just put money into it and passive income comes back to you without the hands on maintenance and pressure to fill occupancy.  By setting up a personalized strategy based upon your available time and finances and by focusing on the real estate goals that work for your time and money, you can make your money work for you and begin to open the doors to financial freedom.    “I feel like what makes real estate interesting is that we can all intuitively understand it.” Dr. Cherry Chin In this episode: [1:33] Welcome back to the show, Dr. Cherry Chin!

#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.

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.

386: Cycle of Grief with Dr. Debbie Bradley

When staring burnout straight in the face, we can sometimes feel the push to jump off of the ledge and leave medicine in the dust.  So why don’t we? 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!
