"But we also have to make sure we're ready to outreach and so the cree health board has been a huge partner of decrease school board for some for some time. Now and in fact we do things like scituate Social workers in our schools didn't have really strong connections with the mental health. Workers have metal supports in our in our communities and then we also make sure that we have support from from our elders council both regionally and at the local level and our our women's association. So this is a real community driven initiative this is a real book both local and regional initiative but really focused on on taking an approach. That's going to be healing and self determining and also very future oriented. Do you think that any of the new curriculum you've created should be implemented in other schools or maybe the approach of telling those stories having someone come into the classroom. Is there anything that you think. you'd like to see in. I guess for lack of a better word. I can think of right now. The the standard so-called standard curriculum in quebec definitely and. I think that you know there have been so many attempts to to redraft curriculum history curriculum in quebec over over the past few years. And i think that most of us understand that these have resulted in some Some changes that have not been very substantial you know like the discontinuation of using amerindian and and and replacing it with indigenous or. Just you know the cursory mention of of residential schools and not any real discussion of the real aim and and a residential schools real damage of residential schools. And so. i think that we have to not lose focus. On the fact that redefining history curriculum is really not only an issue of ditch nece education and if we're really serious about this project of reconciliation if if canadians and quebecers are really serious about reconciliation. We need a complete reset attend. We really need to envision how the entire curriculum is taught..

This concerns tribal health advocates. Who say the lack of data impacts resources for tribal communities reporters with the indigenous investigative collective made multiple public records requests for death records in an effort to find a reliable fatality count. Those requests were rejected citing privacy. The collective has found data problems exist. Nationwide as of june second the center for disease control and prevention estimates that more than sixty five hundred american indians and alaskan natives have died from covid nineteen the highest rate of any ethnic group in the us. That estimate likely falls far short of the actual death toll.

She's the chief research officer at seattle indian health board and the director of the urban indian health institute in march of twenty twenty in the early days of the pandemic. She reached out to her federal health partners to ask for some more p. p. e. so the institute could continue to serve the native population in the seattle area instead of receiving masks and testing kits. She was sent bodybags abigail ponti and joins me now. Welcome to the show abigail and so excited to be here. Can you take take me back to that moment. When you opened up the box with the body bags and what happened we had gotten noticed at a large box had arrived at our clinic. We ran downstairs. We hoping for mask and when we opened it up what we saw instead was a box of bodybags. It was absolutely devastating. I remember taking one of the body bags out of the box. In the toe tags fell out of the bag and instantly there were tears in my eyes. Because all i could think about was the elders. I had seen upstairs. Wanting to get tested of our providers were showing their own mass of our executive leadership team. Who had started washing the scrubs of our providers at our own homes in order to ensure that they had what they needed. And when we asked for help bodybags is what we got. What did you think about when you saw what your federal health partners had sent you. When i saw what they had sent us. I wish i had been more surprised. Unfortunately i wasn't as we look at. How the federal government in the united states has provided the treaty obligations for american indians alaska. Natives we know they haven't and in fact they have never fully funded our healthcare systems and as a result of that we've seen our people have high rates of disease. We've seen our people die. And when i thought about it it was almost the perfect metaphor for what the federal government has been doing to us for centuries and that is giving us the thanks to bury our people in and not giving us the resources so are can live. When did you get the idea to transform the body bag into a rib andress. I've been working in healthcare for really long time and it's hard i have seen people die. I've seen are people not receive the resources that they need. And sometimes i'll drive home from my work and just cry all the way home and so i've had to find ways of coping with the trauma that i experience as an indigenous person working native healthcare.

Misinformation Spread By Anti-Science Groups Endangers COVID-19 Vaccination Efforts

"In some parts of the country. The biggest challenge surrounding the Corona virus vaccine won't be distributing it. It'll be convincing people to take it. Anti science groups and politicians are spreading misinformation about the safety of the new vaccines. NPR's Kirk Siegler reports from Idaho estate with one of the nation's highest immunization opt out rates since the start of the pandemic far right extremist groups of pro tested rules enclosures imposed for public health safety reasons. Sometimes armed, they have openly flouted mask ordinances in the few cities here that have them protesters and Boise, chanting. Let us in outside of Public Health board meeting this month is Idaho dealt with one Of the worst covert outbreaks in the country. In newspaper editorials and on local TV news doctors here are warning this backlash toward medical professionals is worsening in conspiracy theories or spreading. This is the backdrop as the first vaccines arrive in Idaho. Sarah leads is in charge of vaccine distribution in the state. The challenge with dealing with misinformation is that it's very reactive. It's hard to predict what's going to come out next. So the State Health Department is holding weekly meetings on Facebook about the efficacy of vaccines, among other things. And so far, no disruptions Lead says the government carefully crafts messaging, stressing their safety and effectiveness, but it's almost impossible to keep up with social media where anything goes, It's so easy. For anti vaccine groups and individuals to post misinformation and throw a few scientific sounding terms into An article that folks can believe. But this was a common thread in Idaho long before the pandemics, so public health officials here have a lot of practice methods of combating misinformation. Lead says Even the most responsive and innovative education isn't going to change some people's minds. It's those hesitant people who maybe are listening to a family member and Not sure what the data actually is, but are listening to a family member who sounds like a good authority. I think those are the people that we can really impact. But public health officials in conservative states like this say their work is being made even harder by the conflicting signals being sent by President Trump and his allies. Last week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson Sow doubt about the vaccines on his show the night before Vice President Mike Pence was to get his on live TV. Here in the rural Northwest, prominent far right figures on talk radio and Web sites that had already pushed mask protests are pivoting to vaccines. Now the media and politicians would like you to believe that Things will go back to normal if you just simply comply. This is commentator Spirits chorus and a post on readout news. The readout is a loose movement that encourages people to relocate the Idaho in part due to its libertarian vaccination laws. I'd like to clarify right now that I'm not a doctor. I'm not a scientist. Most scientists and doctors are hoping these contrarian voices are a small minority, though they may have an outsized megaphone. And I think it probably is. I'd like to believe that Chris Tramp is a family practice doctor in rural Sabbeth, a Kansas his strategy is to meet people where they are, If they're worried, are skeptical about the vaccine. He says. He tries to get to the bottom of why that is and then give them the best information he can, including that he was one of the first and his small town to get vaccinated against Cove. It 19 1 thing that I'm really going to be preaching to people is kind of a message of you're crazy if you don't take it and what I mean by that is that the vaccine so far is looking so very efficacious. But for now, Dr Tramps says battling misinformation is just one more headache, medical professionals or confronting in this very long, exhausting year.

Are there any learning sites on site or facilities that students Congar 02? I don't even know what I'm explaining this correctly. What are these e learning sites? How do they operate? And where these safe? Why are these safe for kids ago, too, but not the school. Right. And so that's a great point. There are different learning centers that have been set up around marrying county that are available. I mean, at least in theory, I understand the wait list are incredibly long, and it's hard to get a spot on them. But they are available for students who don't have supervision at home. If they need a place to go, and you know it's great because the mayor in Dr King are allowing these learning centers operate. Which shows that they understand that these groups of students congrats safely together on D so What we had in the school's matter. You know, we're urging the mayor take it the next step farther. I mean, shoot. The schools have shut down. The number of covert cases in Marion County has gone up by. I think two or 3% points. Well, Seymour today but their role in seven day average in Marion County. As of yesterday was 14.6. I think percent, which is much greater than it was before the schools shut down, So we're clearly not accomplishing the goal set out in closing the school. Um, we're having a reverse impact on the cove in numbers. Um, but it's great to see the mayor and Dr Kane have acknowledged that it's safe for students to gather in actual school buildings. That's where a lot of these learning centers have been set up. It's safe for them to gather in these settings, and we all know the science is very clear in person. Learning for kids is absolute crucial on def not if not for any other reason than the social aspect of it, that they're able to interact with one another in some form or fashion, Beit Mask and socially distanced, But that makes a huge difference to kids. You know you're not in your you're not a political. This is not a partisan issue for you, right? Absolutely not. Absolutely not our goal and founding any schools matter was too organized. Parent to believe that their Children are best served during in person learning and to help make that case to come to an agreement with that about that, with the mayor and Dr Kane Where are so you've already sent the petition. You were hoping to hear back. You had given them some sort of. Ah, deadline of today or or later this week, do you do you expect to hear back from anybody from from Hog sets office or from the Marion County Health Department? You know, I might be very naive, but I'm an optimist. I do. I do Hope I am hopeful that we will hear from them because I mean, in my heart of hearts, I believe that The elected officials. They want what's best for their constituents they want, especially when it comes to Children. I mean, user, innocent humans who have done nothing wrong and do not deserve to be negatively impacted in the way that they are being. And now that we know that closing the schools is not curbing the spread of the virus in our county. There's no reason to keep the school's closed any longer. And I am very hopeful that the mayor and Dr Kane will take the right steps to reopen the schools now that they know that this measure have not been effective. Where, if if you're if somebody is listening right now they have a student that is not able to go to school. And they would like to get involved in some way. Where can they get a hold of you? Is there a website is their social media for Andy? Schools matter? Yes, we would love if you can follow us on Twitter at I n schools matter. Also, our website is in the school of matter dot com. You can also find us on Facebook and instagram under in the school of matter. On. Do you know those are all great not only to find a way to be involved with us because we're actively seeking other parents who feel the same way and teachers who know that The best thing for the students is to be in person. We also have so many resource is available. One of the tragedies of Sub Cove. It all together have been a lot of the misinformation and sort of the fear spreading. That's gone on. And unfortunately, you know, one of the things I think that we're facing is a challenge where a lot of people feel like it's not safe to be in schools. And if you check on our website and the other the social media we have you can read study after study after study an article after article outlines why it is safe for teachers and students to be in school. Off on again going back to you know our hope with the mayor and Dr Kane is that as our elected officials, it is critical that they model and demonstrate for the teachers and students and parents and Marion County. What the truth is here. We, you know, we can't is not helpful to invoke fear. By setting policy such as closing schools, and especially now that we've done in his been going on is I think it's been 2.5 3 weeks now, since the schools have been closed and again, the rate has only gone up, so we know it's not.

Yeah, There's a lot of that That goes on, you know, And of course me come. They've got the bid goes on. If it doesn't sell, you can always work with the work with me. Come and consign er and try and get a deal struck. But yeah, there's a lot of friendships that are made and relationships. So I've got to say I've made a great circle of friends working these auctions and just getting to know a lot of our Buyers and sellers the folks and make him also provide transportation. And I know some of this stuff goes all over the country. Do.

U.S. sees record surge in coronavirus cases

"Today. We have had what is the largest number of new cove infections in this country on any single day? Since the pandemic hit, we just hit a new record. This is the screaming headline right now the Washington Post America hits highest daily number of coronavirus cases since pandemic began nation is poised to enter its worst stretch yet of the pandemic with hospitalizations rising in thirty eight states. Wanted. To show you those statements tonight from Caldo Doshi in the ICU nurse and emily caps the. In part because of where they're from. Mr Dotion is an ICU nurse working at what is now converted into a full Cova D- unit in Duluth. MINNESOTA. But Emily Cops, the CNA she's in, as I said, a town called Quinta Kansas. Quinta Kansas is population one thousand. That's Work Winter Kansas's. It's four hours, drive north west of Wichita. If you're trying to find it on the map, it is as rural as rural America gets. That's what's happening. Now, that's what's driving this in the country. The last time we had case numbers anywhere near this Hai literally, most of the cases in the country at that time were from a handful of large population states for Florida and California and Texas and Arizona now, it's a handful of states it's everywhere. And there's something else I want to point out about where we are right now. Can we can we? Put the national graph back up there for a second. Look at look at where we've been not just where we are right now. But where we've been that I peek that we got in early April of terrible right when up to like thirty thousand cases day just atrocious thousands of Americans died hundred thousand people dead by the end of May because of that peak in new cases that we saw in early April. But? Look. How we got to that peak, we got to that peak from here on the graph look at the baseline we built up from in that case, right? We got to that I we were starting at zero it was a new virus, the no, the novel coronavirus we started with basically zero cases in this country in January February, and we went in that first peak from zero cases up to thirty thousand cases today. But then after that I peak and we started to come back down we didn't come all the way back down. We didn't go all the way back down to zero. We never actually got below an average of about twenty thousand new cases every day so that we started to surge again, we were searching from a higher point. There was tons more virus circulating in the country at a baseline level, and so because we were building on a bigger base line. When we had a second surge while there was higher amounts of virus circulating out there every day our second peak ended up being that much higher. Our second peak ended up being twice as I in terms of the peak rate of new infections because our baseline started higher. Right and in that second peak. Tens of thousands of people died right that's when we hit that second peak in high summer. All those cases stacked up with a high summer. We ended up with two hundred thousand Americans dead by the third. Week of September. After we saw that huge pecan cases in the high summer. But now, here's our problem right now because after that second scary second peak in the high summer when we drop back down again, not only do we not go down to zero wouldn't even go back down to where we we're. We're our baseline had previously been. When we drop down after that second peak, our new baseline didn't spend much time low forty, thousand new cases a day. and. Now that huge high baseline number is where we are climbing up from. So how high are we going to get this time I? Mean our peak number of infections keeps getting higher with each subsequent surge because with each subsequent surge, we're building on an increasingly large baseline. An increasingly large baseline of virus circulating in the country and that is happening over time as time moves from left to right on this graph, you can see our country increasingly failing overtime. And getting worse and worse and worse at stopping the spread of the virus, which is why peaks keep going up. If we can't get our baseline down ever if each new baseline between these surges is higher than each. Peak is going to be higher to and that many more Americans are going to die with each search. So, right now, we never got low right right now, this new search that we've got right now is coming out of a baseline. Of Forty thousand cases a day with a ton of virus circulating in the country. And where we are right now heading back up to a new peak, who knows how high it's going to be we've got a forty percent rise on hospitalizations in this country in the past month. In. The past week at least fourteen states have set hospitalization records. And we're just getting worse and worse and worse than even trying to contain it in some places yesterday in one county in. Idaho. Regional Health Board meeting they heard from their regional epidemiologist that the hospitals in that region of northern. Idaho. We're hitting capacity that they're major local hospital had the previous day hit ninety nine percent capacity even after doubling up patients in rooms and buying more physical hospital beds to try to put patients in them the local health board responded to that news from their epidemiologist by voting at that meeting. To repeal the local mask. mandate. They got told their hospitals or at capacity there's nowhere to put patients anymore in their response was to get rid of the local mass mandate. That's northern Idaho. One County over from where president trump recently tweeted in support of a local anti mask rally. Yeah take off the masks open everything up. And now here's what you get.

Making sure American Indian COVID-19 cases are counted, and feeding a hungry heart

"The Corona virus pandemic underscores an issue Abigail Hawk the chief research officer of the Seattle Indian health. Board has been fighting her entire career, the exclusion of native people in public health data. We know that the data that's being collected across the United States isn't collecting race and ethnicity correctly however, even with that incredible lack of data, the data that we do have shows an incredible disparity. Growing up in rural Alaska. Echo Hawk was surrounded by examples of how a native community diligently cared for one. Another I was raised amongst incredible people who were the very first public health practitioners. I ever saw if somebody needed fed, they fed them. If somebody needed a ride to a doctor, a five hour trip tankards, Alaska, they drove them. All of my scientific background comes from that space of understanding what it means to serve the community and also the. As an indigenous person, I come from thousands of years of incredible indigenous scientists but after being stereotyped mistreated while seeking prenatal care in Seattle. Washington she knew how she can make an impact in her community. I had a medical assistant question me on how much I had been drinking. She pulled up my sleeves and then I realized she was checking my arm to see had track marks. It was really traumatizing to me is a a young person. I was only nineteen years old and as a result of that experience I didn't get prenatal care until I was in my second trimester, I became a grassroots advocate to ensure that native women were properly treated because we have some of the highest. Rates of infant mortality and maternal mortality within this country and as I went through my college years that turned into what I did my thesis on, she went on to study health policy at the University of Washington, but it wasn't easy navigating between Western, and indigenous knowledge systems. It was hard to balance who I was native person versus what the university is expected me to be and what Western science wanted almost insisted I had to be it became another struggle to be seen as relevant. As smart and as knowledgeable, the other people in the room, and in fact, in the first year of my career I would say that I did not actively practice indigenous science. We come from thousands of years of data gatherers in my communities. We know how to ensure that our corn grows for example, in a time where there is complete droughts I was called out by one of my elders in the fact that I no longer was representing or being an indigenous person it reminded me of. Who I was, and that I would not make any difference in my community. If I didn't go back to the knowledge that I knew was right that I knew was ethical. I was able to incorporate that and not only see how western science has a lot of basis in indigenous knowledge systems. But I also feel that western science needs to quit coming to indigenous people because they think we have all of the problems they need to come to us because we have all of the answers. Today Echo Hawk as the director of the urban Indian Health Institute, a Seattle based organization seeking to decolonize data by putting native people's priorities at the forefront of data collection by being intimately involved in the collection of information native people can shape the narratives told about their communities data and a Western context has always been used against native people. It has been used to show how bad off we are how higher suicide rates are higher diabetes is how we don't achieve the same educational standards Western folks that deficit narrative continues to build support stereotypes of those communities as being less than not as smart of they're responsible for. Their own health disparities all of those things as a result of that, many of our communities have protected themselves and have not participated actively data-gathering efforts across the United States and across the world and that was absolutely the right thing for them to do was to protect themselves. Tribal communities have a right to ensure that data gathered about them is used for their benefit and that they maintain ownership in control over that controlling the data also means making sure that indigenous people are counted in federal and state data sets in the United States. A practice not always followed despite a treaty agreement between tribal nations and the United States. Government. The US census didn't proactively count American Indians until eighteen sixty and this earth of data was used as settle on native peoples land. One of the things that we actively are fighting against is that a small population people don't gather the data about US correctly or they don't gather it at all. So very often albeit presentation, it will say a little asterix that we were American Indians Alaska natives were statistically insignificant to me. That is one of two things either you did not actively try or didn't know how to connect with the community to gather the data you needed to, and the other is, is that when? You eliminate us in the data. You are actively participating in the ongoing genocide of American Indians and Alaska natives, and that seems really strong to say, and yes, it is and I believe it one hundred percent. So I ask people to question these practices that they're doing and recognize that. Yes, I know they're not inherently individually racist but they're participating in a system that has been meant to eliminate my people. These data collection issues remain a major problem in the covid nineteen pandemic initially Echo Hawk was unable to access the CDC breakdown of race ethnicity data. Once she saw the data, she was unimpressed with its quality and breadth. What we found in twenty three states is that native people were three point five times more likely to be infected with covert than Non Hispanic whites. Why did we only do twenty three states in the country? because. The rest of the state simply hadn't gathered enough data for us to be able to analyze what was happening within their states. So only twenty three states had gathered seventy percent of their race ethnicity data policymakers are trying to make data driven decisions. How can they make data driven decisions with bad data? Gathering this data, the resources that we need are not being. In the right way because we don't know how to allocate them. Correctly, Echo Hawk has provided training to universities and the State Department about how to correctly collect race and ethnicity data as well as how to restructure their database systems to better serve indigenous people in all realms of public health. We know that there's about a twenty increase in domestic violence right now as a result of Covid and many of folks who could leave their homes for work or school or things like that to get away from their abusers for an amount of time no longer can do that. I'm deeply dedicated towards the safety of victims of sexual violence and domestic violence and other types of intimate partner violence and so. I am actively working with a large county here in Washington state where we are changing their database system. We are also going to assist them in working with the local tribal communities on what it means. Once they collect that data, how that data is shared back to the tribal communities, how it's analyzed and what kind of meaningful change can come from that at the end of the day. The individual story behind the data guides, echo hawks work. We are also listening to the stories of the community, the impact of a family who's lost both parents the impact of a tribe where cove nineteen has just ravishing through their communities causing so much destruction that qualitative data is justice important as the quantitative data. Simply. Because right now, we don't have enough of that quantitative data to get to those decision makers. So they can make those data driven decisions. Every single data point is a mother is grandfather is an uncle is an anti is relative. We have a responsibility to the story and two story teller to the story. We have a responsibility to ensure that it builds the strength of the community. It identifies gaps that we can then go in and work towards filling that it also shows the strength and the resilience season, the answers that are held within our community by hope for my great. Great. Great. Great. Great. Great grandchildren. That they are not facing the same battles that I am facing that we have an opportunity to come together now as allies within the scientific community recognize we have gone wrong and to see our path forward. The story was originally reported by Lizzie wait as part of scientists, voices of the pandemic series.

"Enjoy you leisure and you're coming down down with the free parking man. That's so good. Some people pray some people here I assure you, but after that, Yeah. Come on after that, Come on down. So right now, The big question is whether not marrying county is going to follow the state of Indiana and going into stage five. That has not been what Joe Hog set has done or the Marion County Health Board. They've got an announcement today at 10 o'clock. So we will know. More than as governor. Holcomb has lifted almost all of the restrictions. But there's still a mass mandate. Don't ask me how that works on DH that's still happening. So who knows what kind of opportunities we will see? What's interesting is that there was a story About The mayor being worried that in the wake of the Briana Taylor case, and there has been two nights of of of I'm going to say right because there has been destruction of property. And of course there have been. You know what? How? Why? Lt's what I say it. You have police officer shot. They're both going to be okay. You had over 100. People arrested Molotov cocktails from Orion, of course, is what else could it possibly be? Was trying to find some middle ground there isn't that's its binary It is or it isn't. Well, People in Indianapolis have been worried and businesses, um and worried. And there's been a conversation of boarding up again that businesses might board up and and the mayor. He doesn't want people to board up because he thinks it's saying sends a bad message. Sends a bad message to people about whether not downtown, say it sends a bad message to those protesters that we consider them violence. No, no, no, no. The message centers about you. Jo Hog set. The message sent is that there's absolutely no faith that you can keep this city safe. That's the message. The message is, there is absolutely no chance that the people believe or the people believe there's no chance that the City County Council can keep this city safe work in many ways, even wants to Don't Don't tell me whether you like that or not. That's how they feel. Why not deal with that? And they have good reason because when riots took place you were at home. You were at home, Mr Mayor. And then how do you respond to people? How? When you're asked about this. As you were. Oh, and and discussing this. You gave an answer that was Surreal. Absolutely surreal. I don't think it's unfair to say that Friday night's level of vandalism and looting surprised everyone. I had to do it all over again. Way might have way might have changed our tactics on Saturday, I differently than we did. What tactic did you have? What tactic did you have? The scar of this has not gone away. It's not going away. The lack of leadership was stunning. Let me read the comments in full But I don't think the audio even doesn't enough justice. I think it is fair to say the first night. I don't think it is unfair to say that Friday night's levels of vandalism and looting surprised everybody. If I had to do it all over again. I think we would have changed our tactics on Saturday night. Differently than we did. What kind of word salad If Trump and Biden had a baby, it would be Joe Hog set. In that statement. I think it is fair to say the first night. I don't think it is unfair to say that Friday night's level of vandalism and looting surprised everybody. It's fair. It's not fair. It's good. It's a He's so busy trying to figure out what word he's going to use. He doesn't have an answer for this. He doesn't have an answer for this. If I had to do it all over again. I think we would have changed our tax. It's on Saturday night differently than we did. What kind of mealy mouth nonsense is this, and that's why people are considering and possibly boarding up. They don't have faith in you because you give statements like this that ensure there's no faith that could be attained. It's gross. Then when asked about riding We'll do everything we can to make sure it doesn't happen. You know, A lot of a lot of these things.

"Is really a fantastic case Study and Thinking about how the government could approach healthcare in a more holistic way because within the military health system, which is operated by the Department of Defense And I serve on the advisory committee of the E. O. D, which is called the Defense Health Board. The Department of Defense runs not on Ly, the clinical facilities, the hospitals and the clinics and the base on the bases all across the world. As well as many of the eminent military hospitals that are in this country. They also operate the benefits program, which is sort of the equivalent of the insurance side ofthe health care for our active military and their dependence and some retirees and their many lessons that we can learn from them, including, for example. The ways in which they compensate their physicians the way in which they invest in education, so their graduates coming out of the military do not come out encumbered with enormous debts. And so they may not make it the same size salaries as we do on the civilian side, but they're definitely more focused on primary care. For example, they also actually have a completely different approach to thinking about how they pay for pharmaceuticals. They rely much more on formularies, and they're able to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies around pricing just also very powerful. And they are very much invested in the use of data to create a learning health system and to continuously improve and that's something that they brought from the battlefield. All the way into the entire military health system. So while it's not a perfect system by any means, and I'm not claiming that it is it's outcomes are comparable to the civilian side, and there are many, many useful lessons. Vivian Search for an alternative to the FIFA Service Healthcare model has led her to seek innovations beyond the healthcare world. One of the places she's looked at. Is the automotive industry. She told me a story about visiting a car manufacturing plant where workers were installing airbags. They had been contract it by Toyota maybe 20 years before to produce the airbags, and the Toyota team had sent out these specialists in industrial engineering. To teach these techniques called lean manufacturing, for example, that have now been widely embraced widely used across most of manufacturing most of the industrial sector. In the U. S. And around the world and we we were just really We were actually almost embarrassed because At this auto leave company. They basically were espousing zero error rate. You know, one in a million was still too high. And at the same time in our health care industry, we have an error rate of maybe 25 to 30%. Patients who are hospitalized. Something will go wrong. Maybe it's nothing serious. Maybe it's just they got their medication 30 minutes after they should have received it, so maybe not not significant consequences. Or maybe it would be significant. Maybe they had a misdiagnosis or they received the wrong procedure. For example. Nonetheless 25 to 30% error rate in hospital and a airbag manufacturer company aiming for less than one in a million. So we just open our eyes not only to the culture but also to how many lessons that we could learn from industrial engineering and from operations that we could apply to our own. Institution to reduce errors and to really improve outcomes. Giving you tell the story of how you decided to become a doctor by hanging out with someone you call Dr B. Toki, that story from from when you are, I think back in junior high and tell me that dream of why So many smart people go into medicine and in some ways the how frustrating it must be to deal with a system that does not allow them to live that dream. When I was in junior high school, a very resourceful teacher of mine reached out to the community and found a number of different leaders and assigned us To shadow them and I happen to be assigned to Dr B, who for several years allowed me to accompany him on his Saturday morning rounds at our local hospital. And I guess that he was an internal medicine physician and mostly cared for fairly elderly patients. And, of course, I was in junior high didn't really understand much about the medicine. But I could see that he was very thoughtful. He was very observant. At that time. I wasn't aware of many imaging studies, for example, or complicated diagnostic test. I felt like he mostly could figure out from Talking with the patients and doing a physical exam. What was wrong with them? And he also cared a lot about them as individuals, and he would always tell me that, you know. Yes, I'm here to care for their medical ailments, but they're definitely more than their medical ailments. It's a lot more about them as people and caring for them is people and I found that I found that really it was so inspiring and on, and he seemed very happy with what he was doing seem very satisfied with his life, and so I decided that I wanted to be a doctor. And you know, medical training takes a long time. So after maybe I don't know, 15. Years later, I discovered that medicine had changed a lot. Or at least I thought my perception of it. It had changed a lot. It had become much more of a business. Much more of ah kind of medical industrial complex.

Demonstrators voice concerns over spearfishing incident

"This is national native. News Antonia Gonzalez last month. A man shot off a gun near tribal spear fishers on the lake in northern Wisconsin for many that brought back memories protests over native spear fishing rights in the nineteen eighties and nineties. The man involved in the recent incident says he was shooting at a squirrel on his property, but is now facing misdemeanor hate crime charges. Some tribal members want tougher prosecution Ben Meyer explains the protest Monday morning in front of the violence. County courthouse was silent, but noticeable people like Shannon Retana held signs, demanding justice for tribal members and. And respect for treaty rights were tired of the hey. Tight racism is hatred and feeding, and allowing that to continue for so long is it's unacceptable and we're not going to stand for. We won't tolerate it anymore. On the night of May. Second Retinas and three others were practising their fragile protected right to spearfish for Walleye off reservation this time on little Saint Germain Lake on shore, sixty one year, old James Kelsey fired a shotgun. He says he was firing at a squirrel on his property Retana doesn't buy it, so that's why may shirt says he's not a squirrel. Now clearly, he's not a squirrel. He's a man. No one was hurt by the shots, but police arrested Kelsey that night he was charged with two misdemeanors, including a hate crime but Chelsea's attorney Steve Lucarelli, told me his client really was firing at a red squirrel on his property. These were two unrelated events. And assumptions of the meant that they are related. There's a reasonable explanation for what occurred. The attorney said he's concerned. The episode is being blown out of proportion, but Chelsea's bond includes restrictions on guns, alcohol and going onto tribal lands, the case comes against the backdrop of protests over the spear fishing rights of Ojibway tribal members which started in the nineteen eighties, and at times, became violent and racist.

We were able to announce collectively that although cities house two hundred thousand people that they really truly would have left to die otherwise together. Becky macciotta and Joe maccagnan created the billions institute to help organizations think of change in any way. A major lesson is that you can't do it alone I think if you've had a successful prototype or pilot. There tends to be a belief that if I just work, you know if I want to reach ten times as many people I just need to work ten times as hard in this episode will hear how Becky and Joe Helped Nhl Teams in wiles and across the UK think differently at the life sciences, Wales spread and scale academy.

To exact synthesis, my head is spinning a half to say it, but in a good way there's lots of learning. I think to take back. I just suddenly throw my God. This is completely achievable. which I just out would never allow myself to believe before so I just suddenly feel like Oh. Wow, this is so cool! This is healthy thinking from life, sciences have Wales a PODCAST CVs bringing new perspectives from leading thinkers in health and care innovation. It's presented by Carryanne Quinn. Hello in recent years as I know that healthcare colleagues Wales have been making huge strides in innovation for patients. But when they found a solution to a problem, common stumbling block is knowing how to take that further. How to scale it up so that others will benefit. Here at the life, Sciences Have Wales. We came up with the idea to hold a spread and scale academy to address this problem. A four-day flagship program delivered in partnership with Cardiff Unveil University Health Board and the bathroom commission. More than fifty healthcare practitioners came to learn about a whole new approach to undertake large-scale change. The founders of the billions institute led the workshops. Based in the United States founders Joe maccagnan Mbeki Maggio to have created transformational learning experiences for over five hundred foundation. A nonprofit executives lied in large scale change efforts in the social sector. In the last podcast Joe Mbeki explained in detail about their approach and methods. People are are not particularly clear on what calls them to the work, and they are not particularly effective at communicating that to others, and so it makes it very hard to to galvanize groups if if you can't articulate that clearly, so it's something about really being able to deeply understand what brings you to the work I. Think is is critically important. We see the same barriers again and again again both in the US, and over in the UK, fear of open. Open conflict transactional relationships. Perfectionism over work is the stated norm. These things are rampant, really and they. They just kind of clog up the pipes. I think so that you can't really be as creative as you'd like to do this big change work. You have to be operating at a very high level inter personally. Everything is about relationships, so if you don't tend to that closely, it's really problematic. So how kid billions institute help Healthcare Practitioners in Wales and the UK.

We could record something in Welsh. Polish, whatever? The patient's language of need is. Speak to remind you, it says something like You haven't had a drink for awhile. Why take sip, but it will flash on the flash I think his intention is for the nursing staff. The healthcare staff to identify the fact that that patient has lifted the cup for awhile and had to drink. Obviously as you can imagine something that clever isn't cheap, but in those areas that we did test, we saw forty three percent increase in the amount of fluid. The patients drunk. And Rebecca's not on her own next up. Mock Thomas Senior Service Manager. At Cardiff, University Health Board. The project is around releasing time for conditions, admin stuff anyone within the health board really to release their time from tasks. They shouldn't be doing.

When parents talk to their kids about drugs, the risk that the kids will abuse them is cut in half. The Ohio opioid education alliance is working to lower the damage of drug abuse today to folks associated with that alliance. Join us in the studio. Jennifer Martinez is director of clinical services of the alcohol drug and mental health board of Franklin county. Chad gesture is the vice president of corporate citizenship, and president of the nationwide foundation, which made an initial contribution of two million dollars to support the work of the Ohio opioid education alliance and their denial. Ohio campaign Chad, welcome back to the studio. Jennifer welcome in for the first time. Glad to have both of you with us before we get into some well, really scary conversation. Let's, let's do a little bit of a set here on on who everybody is and your role in this. I mentioned the opioid education alliance. Jennifer, what is that? So that is a group of private and public partnership, who have come together to really put a message out to Franklin county and olive, Ohio, about the dangers of opioid addiction and to try and change people's mindset about opioid addiction. And then you also you're part of that alliance, but you're with Adam h the hall mental health board here in Columbus, but talk a little bit about that, that your day job my day job. So I am the director of clinical services team without a major Franklin county. We're a county board and we contract with a variety of providers here in Franklin county to provide. Invention treatment services to the citizens of this community. Chad, we've had folks yourself included from nationwide bunch, but give folks a little bit about the nationwide foundation of which you're the president share the nationwide foundation was created in the nineteen fifties to really engage in invest in communities here in Ohio and around the country. So part of our strategy is to be timely with issues that are facing our society today into engage with our talent. So in our model of money is important, but engagement is even more so, and we're going to get into this in more detail, but I mentioned at the top, and it's going to be a big part of what will cover later, but denial Ohio's talking to jacker and of our policy team for we came in the studio says, man, I, I don't know how they do it. But this ABC campaign public service, campaign is all over the place. So just a quick thing chat about what denial Ohio is all about the so denial. Hieaux is all about nationwide. Initially working with our enemies board. Here in Franklin county, and, and Jennifer wouldn't mind if I said every county in Ohio, has a board of some kind might be called Adam age might be called something else. So everybody's trying to figure out this opioid issue at the local level. Everybody wants to do prevention and education. And when Adam each of Franklin county came up with a plan to call for an education, campaign that was really the impetus for nationwide to engage, and what then was created with the denial campaign. So the denial Hieaux piece of this overall opiate action plan was created in Franklin county. Is that correct? Correct. Yeah. Adam was asked by the county commissioners, and mayor ginther to really lead the work around a community-wide action plan. We had several different organizations and entities in Franklin county that we're all doing work around this issue. But there wasn't a coordinated collaborative piece of work. That was. Is being done for the whole community? And so we were asked to spearhead that work put the plan together, and bring in community stakeholders to really get the work done. Jennifer Martinez director of clinical services for the Franklin county, alcohol drug and mental health board. Chad jester who is among other things, the president of nationwide foundation or guests in the studio today. Jennifer, let's start talking about some facts and they are ugly facts, but let's begin with a little bit of a description in terms of the opioid problem we have in, in Franklin county in central Ohio across the state. How bad is it? It's bad. It's bad. We know that over five hundred people died of an accidental overdose in Ohio, in two thousand seventeen we know that the numbers for two thousand eighteen are not looking any better and two thousand and nineteen is potentially going to be even. Even a worse year because offense Nolan carpet, all in some of the other synthetic opiates. They also know that a lot of youth in our community start down the road of addiction, because they are able to access unused medication from appearance medicine cabinet or family members medicine cabinet so we're really trying to get the word out there that this is something that can happen in our own lives to our own families, and friends, and really raise people's awareness in order to be preventative and keeping that addiction from continuing talk more about the demographics, my understanding is it's everybody. Oh, it is everybody. This is an addiction. That does not discriminate. It reaches across says you economic lines class lines race education level. It touches the lives of everyone if most people at this point, either know someone in their immediate. Family who has struggled with addiction or they have a close friend or a colleague, who struggled with addiction and geography as well. Not just an inner city issue, definitely. Not definitely not. We've seen this reach out into the suburbs. Very heavily. We've also seen this reach out into our rural communities, so it is definitely not just an urban or an inner city problem. It is a statewide and really nationwide problem that we have currently, so those are a lot of numbers, but you live with this issue on a day-to-day basis. Tell me a story or two of someone that you've learned their story that is given you the opportunity to kind of put a face on these numbers. You know, when we were developing the opiates action plan, we had the opportunity to meet with a number of people that were in recovery. Family mem-. Members who had lost a loved one to their addiction. One of the stories, I think that stands out the most to me is we met with a group of young mothers, who had found out that they were pregnant in the midst of their addiction, and how difficult it was for them to reach out for help just in terms of the stigma around being pregnant and having an addiction. And really how being able to access treatment services through our providers was really life. Altering for them, we had an opportunity to meet them and the, the small children. And so that was just really a nice thing to see to know that with the right resources in place, people can recover and they can move forward with our lives. So Chad, the nation wide foundation has a lot of resources. I would assume that the asks come to the foundation pretty regularly, when you first started being asked to consider this whole opioid addiction. What were some of the things that you looked into the got your interest in? You went to the board. Or whatever the, the command chain was to say, we need to be in this. It's really interesting storyteller, Joe. So within nationwide with our thirty thousand or so employees around the country, we noticed a change, five, six years ago, and our behavioral health span. So we started doing a lot internally with drug disposal bags that distribution was speakers coming into educate our population about prevention education, where to get the right treatment. So we had a building block inside of nationwide. By the time the opium plan was complete here in central Ohio. When the plane was complete, and there was a prevention education, campaign recommendation. That's when we said to the community will volunteer to take that on and sequentially them the nationwide foundation. Trustees agreed to invest what's now three million dollars in the campaign, that was only after our marketing team spent nine months. Of research interviewing folks through focus groups, including impacted families the Jennifer, spoke to a declarative research, more focus groups tested, the denial campaign mindset of shifting will you take action if you hear this campaign because the awareness is high. So the campaigns really all about shifting the mindset and actions and ownership of the individual, we'll be talking a little bit more about the denial. How campaign in just a little bit Jennifer. You did a great job of talking about some of the personal cost to families and such, what about to broader society to the foul of employees, nationwide or farmers who employ folks on their operations talk a little bit about how this problem isn't just an individual problem. It, it, it's having an impact on society and for that matter the economy. Absolutely. You know, it is impacting individuals and families. Also. Impacting entire communities and employers are quite often having a difficult time finding employees in the current economic environment in part because we have a percentage of our workforce. That is really not available because they're struggling with the sediction, and so, you know, it really impacts all things statewide. I know too, that we've got a lot of dedicated first responders of throughout the country route Ohio. They've got their hands full whether they're police officers or EMT's. This is just one more pile of things that goes on the to do list, a lot of our first responder resources time financial it gets put into this, does it not it absolutely does. And we work really closely with her first responders on training or working with people with mental health and addiction issues. We also. Work with them on some of their issues around compassion fatigue.
