So these are tour begins with Dr Frank Captain so the cameras would go into the tubes. They're inside these heaters. He oversees this lab where chemists are working on new ways to manufacture medications. And so this is what it's going to innovate. This is part of it. Flow is a company trying to bring back the pharmaceutical supply chain to the U. S. They went to India and China where labor cost over two years ago. His business partner, Dr Eric Edwards, approach Dr Gupta in with a goal to make affordable generic drugs. Right here at home. I was already witnessing massive drug shortages. That were plaguing this country, these area central medicines and their ingredients that really nagged me and it was a struggle. The market is immense Americans filled the equivalent of five point 8,000,000,030 day prescriptions in 2018 alone. But in 2019 the Food and Drug Administration estimated that 80% of active pharmaceutical ingredients And 40% of Finnish medications were manufactured overseas, mainly in China and India.

It's all gonna be together streamlining the supply chain, making sure that we have the highest quality that Americans and patients deserve flow is also looking to bridge the gap between underprice generics and those higher price drugs with the more limited market for Children or for rare diseases. There was no profit in these medicines. We've driven the pricing of some of these generic medicines into the ground. A bottle of Fiji water at an airport costs more than a lifesaving vial of medication. Edwards has been in the business for years and has faced some criticism. Calais of the company he co founded with his twin brother than left seven years ago came under congressional scrutiny after pricing for a popular overdose antidote rose by 600%. In three years, the company authorised a cheaper and generic drug soon after. How do you meet that skepticism going into a relatively new company? With these goals. I was not involved in any pricing decisions, and I was in charge of innovation. This is all about innovation and teamwork to try to fix a broken pharmaceutical pricing, reimbursement and distribution system that has left a lot of these generic medicines out of reach for patients.

Public Health Nursing and Disease Investigation with Jill Grumbine

"So today's episode twenty one. I am with my friend and former colleague in Public L. She is still in public health. Joe Grown Brian. Thank you so much for coming into the show. Thanks for having Me Kevin. So we worked together for the whole time. I was in the local for five years or so I would say And then went downtown and did hospital stuff. But so how? Where did you grow up? Start with let's learn about you Where did you grow up? And what led you through school or or an interest when you were younger to get into nursing and then and in particular to get into Public Health Nursing Yup sure To grow return. Virginia who native Richmond Nder And I I remember thinking back When I was in sixth grade we had to write an autobiography as a school assignment. And as part of that assignment and we had to talk about what we wanted to be when we grew up and at the time I either wanted to be a nurse or a teacher So wanting to be nurses been part of WHO. I am for a really long time so since I was a young teenager And I think maybe the thing that kind of solidify that is caring for dying grandparent During my kind of middle teenage years And just seeing the great nurses who cared for her in our home Just steered me on that path And my mom also Has a background in healthcare. So kind of in the blood So that's what led me to become a nurse In terms of public health I can't say was ever a grand plan that I just knew I wanted to a public health nurse Actually started out as a hospital nurse. than a few years in hospital doing women's health women's surgery and caring for high risk. Pregnant Women But then you know as with many hospital. Nurses they long hours. The twelve hour shifts that we're turning into thirteen and fourteen hour shifts and the higher acuity of patients and the higher number of patients. just was very stressful And I decided that it was time for a change but didn't know what that change was going to be And someone who goes to my church said you know. We're always looking for good public health nurses and I thought yeah right. Whatever and a few months later she said you know we have a position open. I really think you should apply for it and I thought well what if I got to lose and it sounded kind of interesting and the schedule was definitely more appealing So I applied for the job knowing that I would probably get an interview but not really thinking it would go beyond that And ultimately they did offer me the position so I started working at a local health department And really loved it Didn't really know what I was going to be doing in public health in the beginning But quickly fell into a role where I was coordinating the Refugee Health Program As my primary duties but also My other major duties were in the Communicable Disease Program for Doing Communicable Disease Follow up For various communicable diseases and also doing to particular case management for patients who had active to break yellow system. So so you what school. You got your bachelor's in nursing how much public health was covered at one Where did you go to school at Nursing School Virginia Commonwealth University go rams right on and how much public health nursing public information? Is there in a typical or your. I guess a Bachelor's of nursing curriculum so we had a whole semester of community nursing and for every clinical base nursing class. You have a clinical But my clinical for My community nursing class with parish nursing so I was paired with A nurse who was doing parish nursing at her church and we really were looking at kind of doing a health assessment for just that one. Little Church I know that I had colleagues who spent or classmates rather who spent time at the health department but I didn't have that exposure and so I really did not have a whole lot of exposure to public health prior to actually starting to work for the Health Department. I remember One of the a during which was really when I first started you already Bed there during h one n one. So I started in January twenty eight when I was in full swing and one of the areas that we Took nations to was a really big church in eastern part of the county and they had like a whole kind of nursing really office. Station Clinic. Kind of thing set up there. Is that similar to kind of the experience that you had. So it's you provide screenings You know for the parishioners so I think Parish nursing definitely evolved now My clinical experience would have been a number of years before and that h one in one experience perish nursing was I would say from my Remembrance was relatively new at the time and but yes things and and like I know our we have a parish nurse who coordinates Health screenings and flu shot clinics Coordinates doing a CPR class once a year or so to things like that so they do exist and I think it just depends on the size of the parish our the Church of how much involvement there is and how much they do and is that usually there fulltime focus like though the fulltime parish nurse. Were they yeah? I think it depends again on the church so in my church is completely volunteer The nurse Who is in charge of that? Has Another time job So does the parish nursing gig just on the side

'A distinctly American phenomenon': Our workforce is dying faster than any other wealthy country, study shows

"A new study in the journal of the American medical association tests the assumptions some people have about life in America the research finds that working age Americans are less likely to live to retirement age than any time in recent history Dr Steven Wolff is the report's lead author he's director emeritus of the center on society in health at Virginia Commonwealth University thank you for being here as a pleasure I just wish it was for better reasons yeah I mean if these numbers are pretty alarming you what you were looking at life expectancy mortality across the United States between nineteen fifty nine and twenty seventeen telling what you found well what we found is that since two thousand ten all cause mortality that means the chances of dying before eight sixty five have been increasing in the United States and for the past three years life expectancy has been decreasing it's a it's a quite alarming recent trend but our study shows that it's been decades in the making starting back in the nineteen eighties is this happening in in other wealthy countries or is this a distinctly US thing that's the thing in this this does appear to be a distinctly American phenomenon there's some element of this happening a little bit in the UK and Canada but nothing on the scale of the United States life expectancy continues to climb in other wealthy nations so what are the factors here what do you think is happening well we did a pretty detailed analysis to peel back the onion and try to understand this the trend in life expectancy is being caused as you said by increased mortality and working age Americans from age twenty five to sixty four and the leading contributors to that is is the drug addiction problem drug overdoses are a major factor in explaining this trend however we also found increases in deaths from alcoholism from suicides in from dozens of organ diseases all told thirty five causes of death where mortality rates had increased in this age group so you did that's the age group abroad age group as you start to to look into to different parts of that age group I mean who exactly is this affecting the most well it's affecting everyone both young adults and middle aged adults but I guess the more alarming piece of this is the large increase in young adults we saw twenty nine percent increase in mortality among adults twenty five to thirty four and Hansen the data that even younger Americans late teens early twenties those numbers are beginning to creep up is there a geographic element to this there is exactly in fact our analysis intentionally looked at the data for all fifty states to try to locate where in the country this was happening the most and what we found was that the increase was largest in the industrial Midwest central appellation in northern New England but particularly in the Ohio valley that was like ground zero for this phenomenon we found for example that of all the excess deaths that occur in the United States due to this increase in mortality one third of them occurred in four states Ohio Pennsylvania Kentucky and Indiana those four states accounted for one third of the excess deaths between two thousand ten and two thousand seventeen why those four states do thing well that's something that researchers like myself continue to need to tease out but one very attractive explanation is the economy this is the rust belt and and the area where at the time when this decline began the nineteen eighties and nineties is when we saw a major transformation in the economy the loss of manufacturing jobs coal mines closing steel mills closing and families and communities exposed to many years of economic stresses and we think they're taking their toll on on folks health I mean I mentioned some of the assumptions that that some make about life in in America and you know I mean I think about the medical advances we've made it look like when you started looking at these numbers how surprised were you were you and your team well this is not a new subject for us so we were entirely surprised by the trend we were concerned about the scale of it the pervasiveness of it and how it's cutting across all racial and ethnic groups affecting basically all geographic settings large cities suburbs and and rural America can be reversed I think it can but we need to change our policy priorities in this country and focus more on improving the social and economic conditions for the middle class if were going to see a reversal to this trend otherwise our children are destined to you to live younger

"A new study in the journal of the American medical association tests the assumptions some people have about life in America the research finds that working age Americans are less likely to live to retirement age than any time in recent history Dr Steven Wolff is the report's lead author he's director emeritus of the center on society in health at Virginia Commonwealth University thank you for being here as a pleasure I just wish it was for better reasons yeah I mean if these numbers are are pretty alarming you were you were looking at life expectancy mortality across the United States between nineteen fifty nine and twenty seventeen telling what you found well what we found is that since two thousand ten all cause mortality that means the chances of dying before eight sixty five have been increasing in the United States and for the past three years life expectancy has been decreasing it's a it's a quite alarming recent trend but our study shows that it's been decades in the making starting back in the nineteen eighties is this happening in in other wealthy countries or is this a distinctly US thing that's the thing in this this does appear to be a distinctly American phenomenon there's some element of this happening a little bit in the UK and Canada but nothing on the scale of the United States life expectancy continues to climb in other wealthy nations so what are the factors here what do you think is happening well we did a pretty detailed analysis to peel back the onion and try to understand this the trend in life expectancy is being caused as you said by increased mortality and working age Americans from age twenty five to sixty four and the leading contributors to that is is the drug addiction problem drug overdoses are a major factor in explaining this trend however we also found increases in deaths from alcoholism from suicides in from dozens of organ diseases all told thirty five causes of death where mortality rates had increased in this age group so that's the age group abroad age group as you start to to look into to different parts of that age group I mean who exactly is this affecting the most well it's affecting everyone both young adults and middle aged adults but I guess the more alarming piece of this is the large increase in young adults we saw twenty nine percent increase in mortality among adults twenty five to thirty four and Hansen the data that even younger Americans late teens early twenties those numbers are beginning to creep up is there a geographic element to this there is exactly in fact our analysis intentionally looked at the data for all fifty states to try to locate where in the country this was happening the most and what we found was that the increase was largest in the industrial Midwest central appellation in northern New England but particularly in the Ohio valley that was like ground zero for this phenomenon we found for example that of all the excess deaths that occur in the United States due to this increase in mortality one third of them occurred in four states Ohio Pennsylvania Kentucky and Indiana those four states accounted for one third of the excess deaths between two thousand ten and two thousand seventeen why those four states do thing well that's something that researchers like myself continue to need to tease out but one very attractive explanation is the economy this is the rust belt and and the area where at the time when this decline began the nineteen eighties and nineties is when we saw a major transformation in the economy the loss of manufacturing jobs coal mines closing steel mills closing and families and communities exposed to many years of economic stresses and we think they're taking their toll on on folks health I mean I mentioned some of the assumptions that that some make about life in in America and you know I mean I think about the medical advances we've made it look like when you started looking at these numbers how surprised were you were you and your team well this is not a new subject for us so we were entirely surprised by the trend we were concerned about the scale of it the pervasiveness of it and how it's cutting across all racial and ethnic groups affecting basically all geographic settings large cities suburbs and and rural America can be reversed I think you can but we need to change our policy priorities in this country and focus more on improving the social and economic conditions for the middle class if were going to see a reversal of this trend otherwise our children are destined to you to live younger lives thank you Stephen wolf as director emeritus of the center for society in health the Virginia Commonwealth University lead author of the report life expectancy and mortality rates in the United States nineteen fifty nine to twenty seventeen it's in the journal of the American medical association we

Deepening political crisis in the US state of Virginia

"And now to the United States and in Virginia, the former capital of the confederacy from civil war days. The state's top three politicians are embroiled in scandals that threaten to end their careers that attendant governor has been accused of sexual assault and the state's governor and his attorney general have admitted to using black face as North America. Correspondent James Glen. Glenda reports the episode has shocked state that has long been haunted by its racist past. Outside the Genia governor's mentioned this week protesters demanded Ralph Northam resign. The photo from the Democrats nineteen Eighty-four medical school yearbook. Page had begun circulating. It contained a picture of a man in black face alongside another in a KKK hood and roads, it was on my page with my name Ralph northern above. I looked at it. My first impression actually that disk couldn't be me. But he apologized and said he was in the photo. Then the next day said he wasn't before admitting to wearing black face on a different occasion while dressing up as Michael Jackson. I had the shoes I had a glove, and I used us a little bit of shoe polish to put under my are all my cheeks, and the reason I used a very little bit is because I don't know if anybody's ever tried that, but you cannot get shoe polish off. But but it was a it was a dance contest. I had always liked Michael Jackson. I actually won the contest at that moment. It seemed like he's career was toast Democrats from around the country. Condemned him and endorsed his Lieutenant Justin v Fairfax that is until a college professor came out publicly to accuse Mr. Fairfax of forcing her to perform oral six and allegation. He denies the leadership crisis deepened further when the man third in line to the governor's mansion attorney general Mark herring also admitted to wearing Brown makeup and a week to look like a Rapa you will find I'm sure democratic and Republican members of state government who will be very concerned about what images existed them from the late seventies and early eighties because this was part of the coacher Gregory Smithers is a professor of history at Virginia Commonwealth university. He says the incident is exposed the level of racism that still exists in a state. That's proud of being home to many presidents and patriots. But also often overlooks it's passed as the former capital of the confederacy. And the center of the slave trade. I'm sure they are polling this this as we speak and engaging. The response in that I suspect sadly will probably guide their decision. Making remember nineteen seventy nine nineteen eighties early nineteen eighties. This was after the modern civil rights movement. So it's not as though people were not aware in the nineteen eighties that this wasn't offensive. They were debates about Virginius history of bubbled over in recent years, there were protests, so the confederate monuments that stand throughout the state and a right wing rally that turned deadly in Charlottesville. This political crisis is gaining widespread. National attention in pot because the Democrats probably need to hold the state to win the presidential election in twenty twenty Donald Trump has already predicted on Twitter. He can take it off them due to the saga. Many of those Democrats vying for the nomination to face him at the ballot box, a demanding the governor. Immediately resigned to stem the damage, but with his successes facing their own problems to Ralph no fan of peace to be digging in and I'm ready to do the hard work of regaining your trust. I have spent the past year as your governor fighting for Virginia that works better for all people. I'm committed to continuing that fight to the remainder of my term and living up to the expectations. You set for me when you elected me to serve. Thank you. North American correspondent James Glen Day with that report.
