Innovations in Breast Cancer: Take Charge of Your Breast Health | Dr. Anna Daily & Dr. Brigitte Piniewski

At the current rate, about 1 in 8 American women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women, but early detection could prevent this growing statistic. In this episode, Dr. Anna Daily and Dr. Brigitte Piniewski join to discuss important movements in breast health, breast cancer, and the future of scientific and crowd-based medical research. Anna Daily and Dr. Piniewski explain the new FemTech platform, Auria: a personalized, innovative at-home breast health assessment. Dr. Anna Daily, PhD, is the Chief Scientific Officer at Namida Lab and the inventor of Auria, the first at-home breast health risk assessment technology that uses tears as a diagnostic biofluid. Dr. Brigitte Piniewski is the Interim Chief Medical Officer at Namida Lab, a medical technology expert, and the author of Wealthcare: Demystifying Web3 and the Rise of Personal Data Economies (available February 2023).  Discussed in this episode: The importance of women’s participation in medical research and science to benefit future generations  Facts and risk factors of breast cancer The importance of detecting the early signs of breast cancer The history of breast cancer and its prevalence in the U.S. What crowd-based technology is and how it can help the prevention of breast cancer How Auria is building a breast health and wellness community  How tears, specifically, can be used as a breast health assessment  Patient medical data, Web3, and the future healthcare economy  “The next generation relies on us to participate in [scientific] crowd-based models if we’re ever going to move away from 1 in 8 women having breast cancer.

401: Trauma with Dr. Melissa Hankins – Part I

Trauma is something that is present in all walks of life in all professions. However, one way that trauma impacts us differently as physicians is that we are taught that it is a normal part of our work as a physician and we are to stuff it down and just keep going. The job itself as a physician is riddled with trauma with the amount of sickness, pain, and death that we face. But, a different flavor of trauma that isn’t discussed is that of the training that doctors face.  All Resident doctors turn to their Attending physician for guidance and training while they learn the ropes of medicine. Oftentimes, this training can be harsh and demanding with a focus on criticism and correction, rather than support and mentorship.  The negative impact this accumulated trauma has on the mental and emotional well-being of resident doctors is, what I believe to be, one of the first tastes of burnout we experience as physicians.  I chat with clinical psychiatrist, Dr. Melissa Hankins, and she shines some light on this trauma and the different actions we can take as Attendings and Residents to move our training forward without the damaging trauma that pushes us right down the path to burnout town. Listen to this episode to hear more about what trauma looks like in the Resident/Attending relationship and some resources you can leverage to do better as an Attending or cope better as a Resident. “One of the hallmarks of trauma is you feel isolated and alone.” Dr. Melissa Hankins In this episode: [02:02] Welcome to the show, Dr. Melissa Hankins! [03:09] Dr. Hankins’s background and evolution as a clinical psychiatrist and her burnout journey. [10:07] Understanding the trauma that we face as physicians and how we need to handle it. [14:36] The trauma that Residents face from their Attendings.  [17:38] How Attendings can do better to train Residents without toxic traits.  [20:09] Actions that Residents can take to stand up for themselves and cope with the trauma they may face during training.

Health, Life, and Lifestyle Changes – Transitions for Great Success: James Van Der Walt

James Van Der Walt is a health and life coach specifically helping others with transitions.  His career was in ICU nursing in Britain before coming to the US.   He found that after a diagnosis of sarcoidosis in his heart and lungs, he was much more accustomed to the nursing role rather than the patient role.  Through this part of his life journey, he shared that it took him a couple of years to get to a point where his chronic illness wasn’t stopping him from doing what he needed to do and was actually encouraging him to live.   James took ownership of his health and through focusing on mental health, he overcame and took back his power to transition in his life.  He was able to connect to himself and his purpose.     As a life coach now, he supports others as they go through life and all of its challenges and transitions.   Learn more about James and VanDerWalt Coaching here: www.vanderwaltcoaching.com Guest Bio: James Van Der Walt is the owner of VanDerWalt Coaching LLC in California.  He is a life transition and resilience coach who works with men and women 30 years and over, who feel disconnected and disjointed from who they truly want to be. He coaches and inspires his client's transition to a reconnected and energized life that is charged with curiosity and creative possibility.   He has worked as a Specialist Registered Nurse in the U.K. for over 20 years, specializing in ICU nursing, organ donation and transplantation nursing.   . Wanting to take his career to a new focused life purpose and direction, but continue using all his life experience to date, he became a certified Life and Health Coach at The Health Coach Institute. This led him to become an entrepreneur who started his own coaching company, with the main aim of inspiring people to stop surviving life, and to start living their own lives! ___________________ Subscribe to this podcast and download your favorite episodes to listen to later: Apple Spotify RSS Feed  ___________________   ⚕️ Are you a woman healthcare professional who is struggling to juggle everything in your personal and professional life?   💯 I understand!

#185: Three New Leadership Norms in Healthcare

In this episode, we talk about the three new leadership norms to become a Thriving, Resilient, and Unstoppable (TRU) healthcare leader.

That’s why we are on a mission to bust through these unhealthy norms and help healthcare leaders embrace new norms that promote health, well-being, and dynamic balance in their lives.

#183: Leveraging Self-Reliance and Interdependence as a Healthcare Leader

In this podcast, we talk about the importance of leveraging the polarity of  Self-Reliance and Interdependence as a healthcare leader. We know it’s been three years of COVID-19  and we are now post-pandemic, but we’re still living in a VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity) world where we need to be self-reliant and interdependent as we move through these challenging times. In fact, both are equally important for emerging and evolving healthcare leaders to achieve effective and successful leadership. In this podcast, we talk about why leveraging the tension between Self-Reliance and Interdependence requires self-awareness and mindful choices. We also talk about the positive outcomes of Self-Reliance and Interdependence and some of the negative consequences if you over-focus on one to the neglect of the other.

LISTEN AGAIN: The Roles of Estrogen and Progesterone Throughout Women’s Lives | Dr. Jerilynn Prior

We’ve all been told about the powerful effects of estrogen on a woman’s reproductive cycle. But more people are now learning that progesterone is equally as important. With so much research and discussion regarding hormone imbalances in women today, experts confirm that these two female sex hormones are critical to more than just sex and pregnancy— they’re vital to every woman’s health. In this episode, Dr. Jerilynn Prior of the Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research (CeMCOR) shares essential information about the roles that estrogen and progesterone play in not only ovulation but basic health. She explains why hormone imbalance is so important to confront, and how hormones impact overall wellness from heart health to bone health to mood. She offers some insight into how women’s hormones change throughout various stages of life, from puberty to menopause.  Dr. Jerilynn Prior is a Professor of Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University of British Columbia, with 40 years of experience in women’s health. She specializes in women’s hormones and peri/menopause treatments. Read more in her book, Estrogen’s Storm Season: Stories of Perimenopause. Discussed in this episode: The difference between estrogen and progesterone Understanding estrogen vs progesterone in the menstrual cycle The role of estrogen and progesterone in bone health, breast and endometrial cancer risk, fertility, weight, and heart health Why balancing hormones in women is so important (regardless of whether or not you want to get pregnant!) Clearing up confusion on the common question: does stress impact fertility? Why it’s hard for women to be aware of some of this research How your hormone balance is defined at different ages and stages of life “It’s important to be aware of your reproductive cycle because it’s such a key indicator of optimal health overall. It’s also important to know because if you want to have a child one day, you need to ovulate normally. Having ‘regular cycles’ is not sufficient.” - Dr. Jerilynn Prior Related to this episode: CeMCOR website: Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research Sign up for the CeMCOR Newsletter for the latest on women’s health Learn facts about how your body changes over life phases Dr. Jerilynn Prior’s book: Estrogen Storm Season: Stories of Perimenopause Recommended book: Period Repair Manual Recommended book: Hormone Repair Manual Recommended book: Sex Matters More on ovulation: Women’s Health and the Ovulation Cycle If you want to support this women’s health podcast, leave a review for Fempower Health on iTunes or Spotify.
