"I had a similar situation when in two thousand seventeen hurricane. Irma came through the florida keys and the level of devastation. I've seen with my own eyes. In real time was beyond words. I could probably find to explain. And the level of community that i've experienced here was just absolutely worthwhile to endure that devastating hurricane and the aftermath. The way how we treat one another the way how we lifted one another up the way how we helped out. Everyone helped where they could. And that is very important in days of peace and in days of turmoil when it comes from nature or elsewhere so community is very important. And i do believe that. Somehow in our societies especially the western societies we almost unlearn. How healthy community can function. And what are the ingredients. And what can we do to rebuild that or reestablish community in the first place and of course when we establish something. I always suggest and i rarely use the generalization of always but in this case i do generated in healthy ways and created in healthy ways yeah. I'm so glad that you mentioned all. I sings dicey. Because that's exactly where i'd like this podcast to guard but i i want she touched on what you just said. You gave some really great examples of when communities have come together in across this. And i'm lucky enough to have also been brought up in a town where community came together like that and it is amazing to see and does alleviate. I think a huge portion of what would have been much much harder and today i also want to urge people out there like you said at the end of those examples to do this every day. Not just win. Wear in little crosses. Ob crosses because that is when you see it the most and you perhaps take mice notice of it but it's the every day acts of community and neighbors ship that really can change people's lives and can i think make a much better environment for a better mental hygiene within those communities to especially when there is something going on worldwide like right now we are in extraordinary times so i suppose we are in across but my point was for us to be able to help people do this in their daily lives. Because i think it's a super important component of living your best life is having a great community being involved in a great community and having that nurture you and you do the same with them. I very much agree with

The Slow Regrowth of Vulnerable Coral Reefs is Solvable
"Minds. Sarah, Hamlin I'm a scientist Mike Marine Lab in Florida and myself is growing car rates forty to fifty times a spade that Karl grows in the wild. Now there's a number of reasons while Koru is really important I mean who doesn't love going out snorkeling and seeing colorful reefs teeming with beautiful fish but they also provide us with goods and services whether that be tourism or employment the food table. And Florida align every system he is estimated to be worth about eight billion dollars not only that but these race protect I landed property from things like storm surge. So really good example of this is Hurricane Irma which was in two thousand seventeen had twenty five foot waves heating the Florida race track down in Lewke where I am and we had a storm surge at building, which is in Summerlin K. of only five foot. So we didn't have a rift system they're healthy ray system there you can imagine that that storm surge those waves would really decimate the land. So I I can hear your Australian accent Australia of course, famous for the Great Barrier Reef what's going on with climate change and coral reefs around the world? Well, wide was seeing a great reduction in live Carl Kaba So this is across the well whether it be Australia United States or any Pacific Ocean island nations. You might have heard of coral reefs as the rainforest say and that that's saying is because even the car reefs tyke out less than one percent of the seafloor. twenty-five percent of nine marine species actually rely on car roofs. At some stage of their life we're seeing Wolmar, she anik temperatures. We're seeing a lot more pollution going into the oceans, and this is resulting in las of live Carl tissue almost as much. If any consequences of climate change, I can think of the people who are really in contact with this are shocked and appalled and upset at a level that those of us who don't come into coral on a into contact with Karl on a daily basis. I don't really get I mean I have your you're in the Florida keys I have a nephew who's into a skin diving and spearfishing in Miami and he's a young guy, and just in the years he's been doing this the coral around Miami I mean he's like shocked and upset when he sees it and says, he can't really fish anymore just because of the change in the last decade, we have lost around ninety percent of that Caro cover in the last forty or fifty years and some of the race in the. Case now or the Florida Reef tractor as low as between four and six percent starting Caro cover, which is quite loy. So we're talking on zoom you have a fantastic backdrop of coral and I don't know enough to know what kind it is but we hear these terms like staghorn coral and I heard of Elk Horn coral what are the main forms of coral that you're working with and what do they look like? We have branching corals and we have massive Carl's so branching Caro's the Stag owns the call and you. Can picture what the antlers of a staghorn or alcorn look like they look exactly like that. So skinny branch is really perfect three dimensional habitat for fish and shrimp and all the Little Rafe critters out there, and then we've got a massive Carl's and these might be brain corals essentially look like the folds and grooves of a brain stock Carl's have They polyps alike little cop. So little stars and their every feeling Carl's they the Carl's that are creating the race and really growing that lodge Rafe structure that remained stable off the storms

"Hi. I'm scientific. American Assistant News. Editor Sarah Lou in Frazier and here's a short piece from July twenty twenty issue of the magazine in the section called advances dispatches from the frontiers of science, technology and medicine. The article is titled Quick Hits In it's a rundown of some non corona virus stories from around the globe. From, Turks and Caicos Islands analysis of Ano- lizards collected before and after hurricanes, Irma and Maria in twenty seventeen and eighteen months later revealed that the surviving lizards and their descendants had larger and therefore grippier Topaz. The team examined Lizard photographs from natural history collections and seventy years of hurricane data to confirm the trend. From Italy sediment samples drawn from the tree and see revealed hotspots with up to one point nine million micro plastic particles per square meter, the highest concentration ever recorded on the sea floor. Most of pollution comes from wastewater and sewage systems. Researchers say. From Antarctica, paleontologists found a fossilized forty million year old frog on Seymour. Near the tip of the peninsula, The FROG is related to modern ones living in temperate humid conditions in the Chilean Andes. From Iraq researchers probing the Turkish State Archives found the earliest known record of a meteorite causing a death. The object struck a hilltop in neighboring Iraq in eighteen, eighty, eight, killing one man and paralyzing another. From Japan results gathered from the KAMIOKA. Observatory which includes an underground detector tank filled with fifty five thousand tons of water, suggested intriguing discrepancy in how neutrinos, an anti neutrinos oscillate potentially violating symmetry between matter and antimatter. From Kenya scientists identified a malaria blocking microbe in mosquitoes on the shores of Lake Victoria. Every mosquito catalog with this apparently benign fungus was free of the disease, carrying parasite and experiments showed the fungus prevented its transmission. That was quick hits.

More Lysol, No More Pens In Rooms. Hotels Adapt To Win Back Guests
"In Normal Times hotels tried to attract customers with star chefs or high end design. But these are not normal times seven out of ten hotel rooms in the. Us are empty now and to survive hotels adapting. Here's NPR's Berliner. The news from Hilton lately isn't about craft cocktails or a spot. It's a partnership with Lysol. That's right Hilton. Is Teaming up with the parent company of Lysol? It's all about the hand. Cleanliness Phil Cordell was Hilton's global head of brand development. We know that through this pandemic the that expectation of cleanliness is probably been elevated to the point now where it's cleanliness almost with a double exclamation point after it at Hilton and other hotels guests can expect disinfectant being applied liberally and visibly leap for the sake of cleanliness and for reassurance says. Jim coyle who consults with hotels on customer experiences. When you get a guest key you will see the staff members. They will conspicuously white. The guess key in front of you before the Hannity when he arrived at desk. You're going to see hotel staff wiping the desk.

Ray Bennett is the company's head of Global Operations DOORKNOBS IRMA. Stats door handles Drawer handles things of that. Nature Has Hilton Rolls Out. It's clean stay campaign. Cordell says guess will notice some familiar objects missing. They will soon that some of the items in the room. That could likely be fingerprinted by previous guests. Magazines notepads pens those items have been removed from the room. And there's likely to be more. Here's industry consultant. Jim coyle again. The phone will probably be something that's seeing. Its last days because of pelvic in that most divisive object in the hotel room I think the the death of the mini bars. Probably finally here. All of these steps have one purpose to assure travelers. That are safe. Released a safe as they possibly can be. While Corona virus is still with us. An early test will be convincing business. Travelers like Liz Oppenheim. Who LIVES OUTSIDE OF BOSTON? She's itching to get back on the road. The longer I go without traveling the more I just don't feel like a person. I literally have dreams almost every night about traveling. Oppenheim works with drug companies on clinical trials and only spends three or four nights a week and hotels. She enjoys it for one thing. She rex up a lot of loyalty points. All the status says for now travel is on pause and his Oppenheim. Imagine staying in hotels again. There's one word. She uses a lot anxious.

NFL Schedule Released
"The NFL is prepared to be flexible. Based upon the Pandemic Commissioner Roger Goodell released a statement which read in part in preparing to play the season as scheduled. We will continue to make our decisions based on the latest medical and public health advice in compliance with government regulations and with appropriate safety protocols to protect the health of our fans players club and league personnel and our communities. We will be prepared to make adjustments as necessary. One is just nice for everyone to have something to look forward to but Dan tell us about the contingency is the just in case things in the schedule your Susan the NFL releases a schedule. That indicates that they hope and plan to start on time and play the full sixteen game schedule as usual and that remains their hope. They're optimistic that it'll be the case but as you mentioned and has Roger Goodell mentioned there is obviously a chance and circumstances dictate otherwise so look for early things in the schedule that would allow for adjustments season being delayed season being truncated in week to everyone who plays each other and to the same bye week later in the year as their opponents. So if if that were to get eradicated you'll be able to make it up during the appropriate by weeks. There are no division games in week three or week four so if you had to miss those two weeks you could. You could have a season where everybody plays their usual number of division games the Super Bowl can be slid back a couple of weeks every city that gets awarded a super bowl has to have a contingency planning case. The game has to be delayed and Tampa obviously has one of those so those are the kinds of things that are in there that allow the NFL. A little bit of flexibility. If as they hope does not happen they have to make adjustments to the schedule. What's interesting we always talking about contingencies in the abstract? What if what? If a couple of years ago we actually lived in Miami Hurricane Irma came in. It was a very unusual situation. Tampa Bay was supposed to come to us in Miami to play the opener. That game was postponed. We immediately went into a bi week. Situation both US in Tampa and since we had matching by week's game shifted to later on the season so it was very surreal situation where we went training camp by week. We were all their players. Were allowed to be dispersed all through the country and then we reconvened in Oxnard California and the rams and the cowboys were tremendously helpful. We went back into a training. Camp Mood St Ross. The owner of the dolphins was tremendous. He put up a whole organization support. Staff families and our opener was actually on the road. Week two in the chargers against the chargers and we played sixteen games straight. So I know we're saying these things happen more in the abstract but who teams just three years ago actually live this very scenario. You have to be prepared for the what if and we all know putting the schedule together is so complicated anyway without contingency plans but it really looks like Howard. Cats and his team did a solid job of trying to prepare for everything.

"I think they are the ones who have the biggest chance to succeed And the research a lot of Or like Warren Jeffs one of our guests and you to actually build the community the co op to put those people. Yeah and I'm a member of savvy coop belated live I believe in them mission Russian. Obviously as a patient is patient advocate and as a engineer a product developer. You know if I were a to develop now I would want to do what I did when I When it was my career get stakeholders wolf if you need to understand the pain points and the need and then built the solutions for that so but I wanted to talk about the other point you mentioned about the complexity so what I find summed oftentimes actually's that you know we have a call with somebody that we're just learning about the their their business business and what they're doing and usually if it's a technical person usually sometime? This is a technical nope person who's actually developed a product. They jump right away into telling us about all the technology and I wanted to say stop. PUT IT in context. Tell me what is the problem trying to solve. And then you know what are your thoughts. This is how could be solved. And then present me was was that solution not necessarily every minor technical detail but at kind of high level and then if we need to go into details will will and that's actually. Interestingly that's similar to the flow of how'd you deliver a successful tech talk is. That's what I coach terrific next speaker is is I you present a problem well and you have audience agreeing with you and kind of saying yes I see this as is a problem. I agree with you than you. Present a potential solution. This is your big idea and then you want to be there with you and see it make the connection that yes. They agreed problems. This and then they see how what you're proposing could actually solve them and then you can talk about you. You know more and paint the picture of the Bright Future Etcetera so people you know you WanNa peep take people along Wiz you so yeah. That's Ted Talk. We have directions from like three minutes to eighteen minutes in there and I coach enterpreneurs to follow that Kinda flow when they do their pitch to investors. Clearly depending on what they're doing they might have two different points. But if you're bringing people along with you it the message gets lost and you say that similar to like an engineering mindset but I was an English major and it aligns very well L. With just general storytelling right. You know you build the introduce the character. What is the plot? What is their journey and typically that involves some sort of challenge inge or a problem and then you know it builds up and what is the solution and can we all agree like okay? There's going to be some sort of resolution to the problem. I think a lot the times when you're working with technology developers of some sort if you're starting with what's the answer you're leaving a lot of people behind in it. Getting people enrolled in your big idea is essentially he to being able to follow through with it. Absolutely I mean by in is important so we just talked. We talked about building it for the right building. The right things for the right Problems that exist then a start up early stage company. I mean you need funding so you need people to believe in your vision enough to invest money in it Partners so so you need to be able to clearly articulate your value proposition and and find the right partners bring additional expertise and then obviously asleep when you go out to the marketplace and you offer your solution whether that's you know B. Two B. or C.. Then you need to clearly articulate the value proposition there and why people should give you a chance because so many solutions out there even for the fixing the same problem interoperability or like patient data. There's so many people doing that work. And then who's GonNa succeed. I mean this is very complex area. But who's going to succeed so I think the jury is still out so year bringing up Gandhian bringing up a problem problem in our. We'd like to ask everybody if you could solve any problem and healthcare or health. It with your magical hat. So time name is non-issue money's not an issue resources. You have all of them. What problem solving so on the it can a health continuum? I'm a big advocate of prevention. So the way in my mind the best way to solve all the problem is to prevent it from ever occurring in the first place so I been big advocate of kind of healthy lifestyle L. and disease prevention knowing kind of knowing yourself and doing everything that's in your personal power to keep yourself healthy. So as I mentioned I grew up seeing a lot of illness. Autoimmune disease and heart disease blindness is and all of that so I didn't start from the point of going to be healthy and illness just sometimes happens. I started from. This is GonNa Happen. Everybody's anything I can do to prevent it So I lived in a lot of spend a lot of years living in fear of not not wanting to have that outcome you know and then and then over year over the years I seek out actually a lot. The older women who are leaving vibrant lives. Who are working or doing something that the they're passionate about into their senior years and I've seen those women as inspiration and as a way to pivot from? I don't want to be misdiagnose like my mom was misdiagnosed for three years of cancer. Got Missed and then she ended up badly for twelve years. Various advanced advanced cancer. I don't WanNA end up like that so I've pivoted to say I want to be like other women like one of our speakers who started started surfing at fifty and still serves in her seventies or a lot of other or care and find seeing that. I've watched that global movement from Beacon Street stage. I want to be like those swimming. I WANNA find my passion. I want to unchain myself from things that are impeding my creativity or preventing me from being my whole heart itself to whatever I'm doing and eh and that's where I wanna go as opposed to prevent so the mindset means you know mindset is important so obviously we don't know it's it's not a hundred percent proof we can do everything we know is right and we could still get disease is now majority of cancers still show up and people without family history. Korea was already genetic mutations so you know there's only so much we can do whatever we can do it then step two is early detection section. Because I've seen it with my own eyes. When devastating disease detected early cancer could become curable is detected late it it becomes a death sentence so prevention when we can as much as we can early diagnostics and then you know if diagnostic happen then personalized treatments so whatever diseases detective hopefully super early than personalized treatment to get that addressed secure so I'm very interested in to testing genomics and precision in personalized medicine? And then of course moving on diseases chronic or couldn't be cured and we have kind of next is level. It's therapies and drugs that can support a person was serious chronic disease so recent city of those medications so making them also personalized. So that you know Matt Persons microbiome microbial comes into this as a big factor now that is being investigated investigated then the water. Work is being done. That space in terms of making therapies work better Depending particular person's particular genomics Jason microbiome etc.. So that's so it kind of moving from prevention to various interventions so I had that magical Michael Hat that I could put on Then what would prevent all the all. The disease as possible will be empowered to prevent the disease his If that's not possible than early diagnosis and personalized treatment. So that the whole goal is so that we can continue to live breath. He'll see vibrant productive happy. Lives I like curiouser and that you talked about how you've sought kind of mentors in this space as.

"We have absolutely and they were talking about health literacy recently and thinking thinking about you know forced learning a lot of times people. Don't go and find the information they need on until either they get sick or somebody in their their their family or loved one. Get Sick but being on the other side how how do you make it easy for people to understand all of the either technology or information that is out there. That is irrelevant Yeah so that's actually a very interesting question because as an engineer ear was two masters degrees and having done a lot of program management and Working Cross functionally always just needed to do a lot of Research and dive into areas might not be so familiar with and bring myself up to speed very quickly and then as a patient advocate. I mean I've I dove into all kinds of areas. You Know Cancer Research in clinical trials and understanding. You know minute details of different tests etc catch catching preventing if you medical errors. That could have occurred if I wasn't diligent and they're so so so I I know how to do it. I don't stop until I get an answer but when I learned I had cancer myself it was almost like I couldn't Yucel missile same muscles. Because you know my own like I kind of you know. I didn't completely fall apart or anything because I kind of knew like okay. Well now I have to to deal with it and and I have the resources that I need and I have the capability to maybe look for the answers but you have a different kind of almost easier easier to go to bed for somebody else. That is self sometimes so it was just an interesting to observe that even the most educated educated and the most resourceful person would also need a patient advocate themselves if they end up being in the in so you know in the critical situation. Yeah but then there's also The help of community that you know I kinda had a lot of support support and I was able to come turn that around and like okay. I'll be my own advocate. I know how to do it and then you know I. Just keep advocating for myself although that's hard sometimes so we sometimes share there's other patient advocates that it's could be frustrating system you know we'll bumping up against assistant. That is not always optimal the. There's there's some barriers to getting out patient formation whether that's cover shirk or the whole idea of challenges and of course when somebody stealing was a physical challenge it just makes it so much more difficult to deal with hoping other aspects of healthcare that show shortly related to just getting just getting help me that just getting treatment. I'm sorry. What was your question about education right so I think which was it's getting too is if you're obviously very well poised to have been editor mother's side to be that advocate and I think you did a beautiful job articulating? You know how how that doesn't always translate when you're package yourself. What about for just lay people in the marketplace or people that may be lacking that same level of attune tournament to the healthcare system or just knowledge resources barriers? You know how do you translate or even with some of the customers you work with now. How do you to make sure that that technical or these very sophisticated systems are these ideas? Come across in ways that everyone can understand So then maybe that is a job of Somebody like myself or the function that we as marketers. Now take on ourselves is how do we communicate that message message who is the Quote Unquote target audience that we want to reach and what is the what are the right breath channels and what are the right ways and the right language to use to To communicate that to reach people and I think that is you know comes back to storytelling in an relating and an empathy and getting besides somebody Who needs help and getting arm around them? What didn't you found to be some of the more effective ways of storytelling storytelling? Has it been through. A certain medium has been through video or certain educational channels or is it literally just as you're saying being side by side with somebody and along with them as they're going through their journey well absolutely so the face to face connection is always the strongest. We knew it in business. And obviously within you know come to Interacting with patients or patients trying to make impact them and in any kind of idea. You're trying to communicate. So that's that's the best if you don't have that capability ability to be somewhere you're physically present with somebody than video so we're talking about the rise of health telehealth so that's ability ready to bring people together who are not physically In the same space so there is some challenges to adoption of telehealth and spend a lot of talk about wise. It's not and why is it not picking up quicker and maybe especially in those areas that perhaps need those solutions most they might be just not equipped quipped or afraid of the technology or they might not even have Little Internet access that would be necessary for it to work so there the various like that certainly but you asked what channels what ways work best well known that for a while like live live video connecting with somebody over videos one thing but posting continent video form. People are still drawn to that but also audio podcasts. As you know you're talking you're you're very successful podcast right now. So that is an amazing medium that continues to grow and you know we. I know that people are different. Learners some vision you know visual learners an auditor Laura. Some people are drawn to video and some people actually processing permission veteran audio. I love boasts but I really liked the audio format myself. I find that video could be a little bit distracting instructing for somebody like myself was ad so even when I'm talking to clients or unless it has to video actually prefer to talk on the phone. Yes I can just focus on the voice and message result destructions technology was video. Could actually be sometimes very distracting. Because you know it's just a the connection challenges and this and that and people shuffling papers or you know that anyway. So so I find it actually destruct and then I think even with text you know social obviously can use video you can use a images That's important but I think words matter and the way you Use the language which to bring idea forward I think is is important and we used to have one hundred forty characters on twitter announce to eighty. But it's still a very succinct message and I find I find it is a different kind of challenge and you know writing long form content But I think there's an opportunity to grab somebody's attention then if you're talking about somebody something that's of interest to them and then there is opportunity to learn more you know. Get people resources or you were talking about making Accessible information accessible so that could be opportunity to kind of break it down into small chunks and then give people additional additional resources if if if they're interested so the companies you work with now that you consult with that you're helping do some help them get their message out and their big ideas ideas you said that you know the Beacon Street. The tax is a great platform to do it. Have you run into anyone. That has a solution or something out there. Air That maybe they've brought you an idea and it just seems like a solution for the sake of a solution. Maybe it's not solving a problem in health care or maybe they have have a great idea. Maybe you have another example. Give you another opportunity that maybe it's not just a solution that you might not see a lot of value for but and it's just out there not really solving a problem. They're searching for problem right or have you met somebody that just. The radio is so complex. They're not able to break it down or even in articulating rickie leading it to you. You have trouble translating. What's going on because we've made some people and it really like you have to sit there and dig under all these layers to be able to connect the the dots and I think someone like you with your level knowledge education and understanding in the space? You know these people do have trouble letting them know what's going on on so do you have any examples of people work with where again they had a solution chasing a problem or maybe they were just. They didn't job simplifying what they were trying to deliver to the marketplace. For sure I can talk to this from a number of different perspectives so I have a particular client example because we tend to not work. We wouldn't take people like that on if it feels like. It's just the solution looking for problem. That's not a real world issue that the to solve but ahead ahead come across this in my coaching clients often for like a storytelling coaching for enterpreneurs. And I can. I can relate to some parts of because I'm an engineer. have to advance engineering degrees in. I think like an engineer so when people get excited about the technology has some really cool thing they could actually put together a do but they don't have an understanding of You know real your world applications of it or they need out there that I've seen it a lot where as you said. There is a solution looking for a problem. And and there's been some successes where actually things matched up and it ended up. You know maybe that technology just nobody thought of what problems could solve so it is sometimes situations like that but I see a lot of engineers and I can recognize that. oftentimes maybe maybe people want to just focus on what they know and focus on technology and do you know cool Develop cool things. And they don't have the expertise themselves but which is fine but what I see sometimes in startups they don't reach out to get that expertise or they just all we need. We need to have a product I want you to have min valuable viable product. And then we'll start you know showing around to people etc so so you know. Bring the patient experience. There's a lot of conversation on social my friend. Grace Court of Hana talks about it all the time and also the Gen and others the savvy. Coop they talk about it all the time and bring patients in early on asked patients. What is the problem and not? Just patients providers doctors physicians like US paint points everywhere. Yeah it's mind blowing that we would ask the people that it might actually be four or that have to put their hands on the stuff and I mean it's it's I can see how could be scary to talk to people. How how'd you find the right? You know how do you tap into the right population so the companies that figure out how to do that..

My technical skills moved to a different industry and ended up working in the eight years before moving to consulting. But I've because I was a caregiver for my mom can it be at every step of the way for twelve years as she battled metastatic breast cancer. I've the healthcare system from a whole different perspective as an insider being side by side was a Very ill patient. That's actually benefited from quite a few traditional therapies and clinical trials and the number of different Chemo's and also hormonal Donald Treatments etc.. So it became a become a patient advocate. So helping my mom and then over time helping a lot of other members of my family in others. There's so here I had my feet planted in the high tech world. I was still doing product development. I was You know patient advocate. I continued to be since one twenty years of patient advocacy and And then they moved into technical consulting outing I ended up somehow moving further and further away from direct product development. But I kept looking for other ways to be engaged engaged with the whole medical community inovation community so I ended up co founding a ted Ex event independently independently organized Ted ex conference of. If you're familiar with Ted talks. Those eighteen minute talks that people. See here around the world old so We started a nonprofit seven plus years ago here on the Boston area called ideas in action and Main thing we do was that nonprofit which is an education space is organized conferences and advanced tax beacon. Street is Familiar to people in the Boston area. as somebody who's been so passionate interested in the space of medical technology in healthcare innovation and and can level healthcare the delivery methods and Kostanic changes from that improve patient experience at Cetera. So I've brought the number of speakers to today's Beacon St Stage that talked about those specific issues in fact a couple of years from our stage Whole new movement at got launched A? We're a global is a women's health activist movement. That is actually doing the work. Around the world on a mission to use the power of women's activism and the desire to bring about change from kind of human centered to space space. So I I'm happy to have been able to. You know have a small part in Kinda like giving the platform for that initiative to launch but additionally so what I Do a lot with ex beacon street designed coach speakers so I've grown to really love storytelling rolling and I've grown to understand the importance of storytelling physically. Anything so to bring it back to what I'm doing we now and what might piece of the puzzle is I see myself as an innovation catalyst so I see my role as to find those pieces the puzzle that need to come together to address. Healthcare needs people's healthcare needs in the healthcare healthcare issues in a holistic way so going back to technical career. My last corporate GIG was with Google. Where was for more than five years variety of different roles us and I mentioned how over time had moved further away from hands on development but I also moved further away from in my day job working on things that that were meaningful to me so as I was doing a lot of passion projects Beacon Street working with speakers in in mazing innovators and people who are passionate and accomplished and did work in the healthcare space. I wanted to be there full time. I wanted To-do Can get go back to that work that I still remembered from my early days is being very fulfilling and an important. So while to goes looking can for ways to get involved with Initiatives in the space life sciences at Cetera so It just seemed like it was a great opportunity to move on and carve out the new project for myself going forward so that go back three years now. Ah When I love Pogo without knowing exactly what I was going to do but what I did now is that I wanted to combine the my strong technical background around experienced by that time already had my second masters in engineering management so combining those deep roots in technology he also having had experience in life sciences medical devices medical software having been a patient advocate for twenty plus years and now I didn't do that having become a cancer patient myself I wanted to An explosion experience with storytelling. I wanted to bring all of these aspects together and do something meaningful. In the health tax space and then so I continued to coach entrepreneurs and and business people in storytelling and delivering winning pitches information competitions and consulting business strategy. But what I'm doing now would have your health as chief innovation. Catalyst is We've joined forces with seven crystal. Who is a well known? Social Media. influence Eric and a digital practitioner. And very well known in a lot of emerging technology and a little different technology Arenas so join forces to create of your house. They'd be to be marketing consultancy With a focus on social media so we actually used social media as is a platform to give a variety of people and an organization and companies in life sciences in hell stack space that ah exposure that voice that opportunity to bring forward. Those big ideas I can you know Ted Ted talks talks big ideas of what they're working on today and connect them was the audience that is eager to hear this information. So that's what's what I'm most passionate about now. Invasion catalysts is using that storytelling in this form of social media. Didn't also mention is. I've been always connector of people ideas so I built communities of the next because the street is also a huge community that had been growing over the last seven years. So what I find is is that social media is also a tremendous community. I've met amazing people over the last three years that I've been on social I love engaging with people and I love bringing people together and that's what we do is if you're a halse probably at this point I don't know there's a lot of any say you'd think that made I think you seamlessly wove together kind of the narrative beginning to end to allow allow us to understand where some of that early exposure even as a young child. A young adult has really landed you where you are now. I'm struggling with where to begin. So you're telling us when we first met before we sat down to record that you were really doing. Three D.. Mapping of the brain kind of by excuse my ignorance by yes. Yeah so I can tell us until this week what was what was the rudimentary work going on. And you know what it feels like now. Maybe a couple of decades later in a position to see what's going on currently in that space well absolutely so What what was so? Oh interesting fascinating about my first full time job in the space and being a software engineer in the in the start up working with is Images of the brain. So I'll just talk a little bit. About what the technology was back then in one thousand nine hundred and then I'll talk about what I had scene at him just earlier this year. And how the particular technology had evolved in what is now possible so so what we had to do. Twenty years ago for patients with brain cancer we use the cat. Scans a series of two the images. Scan where the metal frame literally had to be bolted on the patient's head to provide that frame of reference that Eh Allowed for sub millimeter accuracy. which was so important in using radio surgery to treat brain tumors in the for listeners? That it said no meter accuracy is what allowed them to target the therapy in the right location of the brain exactly literally Shape the site. The shape of the radiation literally around the tumor could be actually very Kind of funky shape and spare the healthy tissue so a lot of work went into preparing pairing for that radio surgery so medical physicists or the neurosurgeon had to outline on every two D. slice off Patient Anatomy the brain scam. mm-hmm medical physicists. Would outline literally the size of the shape of the tumor but it also optic nerve and brain stem and is is all the critical structures that needed to be avoided during the delivery of high levels of radiation So so that was dead and and then what what what my work was actually take those three d images with the outline little pencil outline dumb computer. The structures in three D representation of that could be manipulated in space and then that was used to create a treatment plan. So and how long did did that take at that point in time when you're using it for somebody that was making moderately impacted. That needed that type of treatment. Oh so the patient had to be scanned the day before was was that the metal frame four bolted on the head. They had to keep it on until the images where process than the outline was made just in case if they had to be scan again and then so they had to stay stay overnight in hospital for the night before and then this would happen and then the medical fizzles out lentil structures and run ronna software that would actually create beautiful three d graphics and then plan the surgery etc so it's Only interesting to talk about what happened. Twenty years later because at hands just earlier this year I saw what is happening now in the company brain lab which used to be extra competitor of ours twenty years ago so what they do is done now by them and others is all of that. Reconstruction of Humor Humor krill structures three Ds that had the medically. So there's software now processes cans. There's no need for off off frame. Metal frame patients has all of that. You know increases the obviously patient safety and comfort and also the speed you of the procedure etc I saw operating room of the future. was exhibited in the eighteen business booth so there was a combination of technology like a five G. enabling technology communications and then a brain lab that the all the imaging image processing and three d instructor generation and also used magic leap. which is those A are goggles so the combination of all street technologies has is just a tremendous potential. Not only of the replacing all that unnecessary now work by medical physicists and neurosurgeons and the patient involvement but was the magically augmented reality glasses eliminating the need for computer screens because because during a procedure you know so complicated after have nursing and staff and you have to have a Lotta information displayed. So they now can eliminate computers and all that information displayed literally on the display on the Had said man reality headset. It was just I was just just established. I knew there was tremendous progress. Dan In twenty years. I mean and so many different areas. It was just amazing to be like literally. The there was a mock-up operating room. which I I used I used to go? And we used to calibrate systems and hospitals in the operating rooms etc and then to be operating room of the future where patients patient's still get brain tumors. Obviously right so But the technology has Gone so so much forward with that. It was just you. You know exciting. That was specifically what I used to do. Twenty years ago is being done now this way but where it was so exciting for me. My current role is like I cannot talk about it. I can block about it on social media as part of my coverage hymns or You know we can highlight with our clients are doing and a lot of people who are not connected with us now can know and what is also empowering is is that let patients potential patients current you know patients with these diseases could know what's available. What's possible so I love social media's in education too I learned a lot so social media myself but I also love using this as education tool for patients to to find resources find other people find that communities find information that is sometimes needed to basically kill?.

the transition we're coming from a location from from school from shopping from hospitals visiting would've oh person going through trauma going through traffic we're all rushing huffing and puffing

"Was the costliest hurricane to ever hit Florida until Irma and revisions two years ago and people certainly remember Irma and what Irma did so anyway fingers crossed really really hoping that we don't see the worst of Dorian get maybe a little bit lucky and fears in a little bit of a different direction here's the big shocker on the political front and I just mentioned I was in Iowa the Democratic National Committee is going to reject I was planned for virtual caucuses that complicates the Iowa Democratic Party's implementation of what they call the twenty twenty presidential caucuses and threatens really what's happening with them going forward but it was confirmed late on Thursday that that's what the deal is it follows a meeting of the DNC's rules and bylaws committee last week in San Francisco where members voiced concerns about the security of the Iowa plan and the potential for hacking because of course were always worried about hacking and that if you think about it though the idea of the virtual caucus plan was to work with New Hampshire which follows I with the presidential nominating process and has certainly talk to any changes that make Iowa's caucuses looked too much like the primary for years there have been complaints that I was process makes it impossible for people who can't show up on a caucus night at a precinct location to make their voices heard and that it takes too long people are complaining process is too long too long so that was the idea of doing this and it's not going down some is less so that the DNC rejecting the virtual caucuses does Conor through this all in two questions so what's up next speaking of what's up next and my little version of odds and ends this is kind of interesting I drove by a target today and I said to the hubs who's with me wow target used to be the place that everyone in our opinion this place everybody went then they had the hacking with the credit cards and now they're doing some interesting things Walmart and target are hosting carseat recycling events in September so what does that mean they are offering big incentives to keep the seeds out of landfills because the timber is national baby safety month so they've got these in store training in events to recycle the seats anything about the get a twenty percent coupon on baby gear in exchange for old seat that could be lucrative for some people so for Walmart they've got about four thousand stores and then they're saying you get the Kerr so you get a thirty dollars gift card that can be used in the store online or you know what not and I bet you that this is interesting but they're going to have a lot of people turning in car seats target I guess did it back in twenty sixteen and they had a half a million car seats and about eleven point nine million pounds they say of materials that have been recycled a I'm for that units be on any political team to say that's not a bad idea why not and then you get something for it in exchange because I've seen those car seats I was doing historian a landfill I remember it is odd and this is why I bring it up it is really stuck out to me like wow it seems like there's a lot of our sleeves and of course it goes to that whole recycling and what's tougher to you know what what's done can't the landfills was tougher to to break down and certainly there's there's more difficult things than that but it was something that stuck out to me that in this particular place where I was it seems like there's an ordinance number of them so Bravo over trying to figure out a way smart on their part right because it's commerce get people in the store but it's also smart because they're doing something about a problem frankly right so that's pretty good I saw this too I happen to catch this that Alex Trebek who is seventy nine completed his chemo and he's taping season thirty six remember he's got the worst of the worst stage for pancreatic cancer and that's like a death sentence for so many people when they hear that but he looked okay I mean he said he's thankfully that's over any cities on the man's best you can hope for and he's doing what he loves doing and I didn't realize this because I was thinking what's the number when it comes to that kind of cancer and remember Patrick Swayze had a lot of famous people I have had that cancer about fifty seven thousand people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the US that's engine six from the American cancer society forty five thousand are expected to die of the disease in twenty nineteen the survival rate generally very it's very difficult we have tank reality cancer he is under contract to twenty twenty two anything pretty upbeat he made a really funny joke I thought he said he wondered who might play him in a biographical film Betty white the legend who's not ninety seven and I thought that was quite clever so he still has his sense of humor which is a very good thing when you're going through something that's really really really tough and and obviously that is already mentioned coming up I have a quick give away for somebody I want to make it official I thought I did on their concert here this person or someone from their organization on their whoever it is I don't think is going to win but they're all kinds of groups at this speaking engagement or I was in the
