Winter is tough on a lot of us, myself included.  I throw in a few tips on how to make winter more bearable.

Dr. Streicher’s Inside Information: THE Menopause Podcast

In the United States, there are 10 million women with OSTEOPOROSIS and 43 million women with OSTEOPENIA. Most of these women have no idea that they are at risk for a potentially life-changing or even fatal fracture.  One reason for this lack of concern and lack of awareness is that osteoporosis is usually a “silent disease”. Today, I am going to break that silence. My guest is Dr. Kristi Tough DeSapri, an internist with a specialty and expertise in women's bone health. This topic is in 2 parts. This episode will focus on WHY YOU SHOULD CARE about bone health, RISK FACTORS for osteoporosis, and SCREENING RECOMMENDATIONS. Episode 61, Part 2 will focus on prevention and treatment.  We discuss: Why there is so little awareness of osteoporosis The consequences of osteoporosis Symptoms and early warning signs of bone loss The difference between osteopenia and osteoporosis How common osteoporosis is When someone should get their first screening Risk factors for osteoporosis Why women are more likely to get osteoporosis than men Dr. Kristi Tough DeSapri boneandbodywh.com For more information: Bone Health and Osteoporosis Foundation Hot Flash Hell: A Gynecologist's Guide to Turning Down the Heat Lauren Streicher, MD is a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine, and the founding medical director of the Northwestern Medicine Center for Sexual Medicine and Menopause.

Episode 13:2 Bob Kramer on the “Second Pandemic” and Why Innovation Takes a Village

One of the most powerful voices in the business of aging well, Bob Kramer shares his vision for transformational change in senior housing and healthcare, solutions for the crippling staffing crisis, and exciting collaborations with NIC and Nexus Insights. About Bob Bob Kramer is Founder and Fellow at Nexus Insights, a think tank advancing the well-being of older adults through innovative models of housing, community and healthcare. Mr. Kramer is also Co-founder, former CEO, and now Strategic Advisor at the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care (NIC). He is broadly recognized as one of senior living's most influential and high profile thought leaders and connectors. With over 35 years of industry leadership, he has earned the reputation of “agent provocateur” in the seniors housing and care industry. He has been described as an “ice-cutter” and scout in identifying industries and trends that will disrupt the future of seniors housing, aging services, and aging more broadly. In 1991, Mr. Kramer co-founded NIC to advance access and choice in seniors housing and care by attracting capital to grow the sector. Under his leadership, NIC became the go-to resource for data and analytics for the rapidly expanding seniors housing and care industry and an acknowledged thought leader for new ideas and trends impacting the provision of housing, services and care for older adults. Mr. Kramer stepped out of the CEO role in 2107 and continues to serve NIC as Strategic Advisor. A former county government official and Maryland state legislator, Mr. Kramer was a leader on health and environmental issues while representing the state capital of Annapolis in the 1980s. Mr. Kramer was educated at Harvard and Oxford Universities and holds a Master of Divinity degree from Westminster Theological Seminary. Key Takeaways The staffing crisis is the second pandemic. Senior living communities are trying to do more with less. Staff are suffering from physical and mental exhaustion. Senior living needs to move away from a model based on care and assuming decline and deficit, to an aspirational model based on lifestyle and personalization. In the past 10 years, assisted living has focused on marketing care and stopped selling lifestyle, community and engagement. The future is about enabling a sense of purpose, belonging and connection. Age-tech has exploded. Ten years ago, the age-tech category was nonexistent. This year, CES (Consumer Electronic Show) partnered with the AARP's Agetech Collaborative on an entire area dedicated to age-tech startups.

Today's topic about diet culture and friendship inspired more emails from my Facebook group--Dear Nina: The Group--than any other topic since I started the podcast. What do I mean by diet culture and friendship? I'm referring to how the culture of dieting and the worship of thinness affects friendships, can become competitive, and is spread among friends. We also discussed friends being overly invested in and overly influenced by each other's decisions about food.Pam Moore, intuitive eating coach, helped me get to the bottom of this one. Pam  is an occupational therapist-turned-intuitive eating coach and health and fitness journalist. As an intuitive eating coach, her mission is to help women detach their self-worth from their weight and to move their bodies because it feels good — not as a punishment. The author of There's No Room for Fear in a Burley Trailer, Pam's writing has also been published in The Washington Post, Runner's World, SELF, The Guardian, Time, Outside, AARP, and Forbes, among others.Despite, or more likely because of being picked last for every team as a kid, Pam is also a certified personal trainer, six-time marathoner, and two-time Ironman finisher. Her podcast, Real Fit, features conversations with women athletes about body image, enoughness, and more.You can learn more at: pam-moore.com, LinkedIn, TikTok, Instagram, and TwitterSee the show notes HERE.Let's connect over all things friendship!

Dementia affects millions of people and is more common as people grow older (about one-third of all people age 85 or older may have some form of dementia) but it is not a normal part of aging. Dementia is the loss of cognitive functioning — thinking, remembering, and reasoning — to such an extent that it interferes with a person's daily life and activities. Some people with dementia cannot control their emotions, and their personalities may change. Dementia ranges in severity from the mildest stage, when it is just beginning to affect a person's functioning, to the most severe stage, when the person must depend completely on others for basic activities of daily living, such as feeding oneself. ARE YOU READY TO TAKE THE COUCH? I am interviewing Corlette Deveaux, CEO and founder of the Deveaux Group. They are hosting a virtual seminar in February on how to open an Assisted Living Facility. We also discuss dementia, its many challenges and much more. HERE'S INFORMATION ON CORLETTE'S VIRTUAL SEMINAR: It's a two-day virtual seminar held on 2/8-2/9/2023, "How to Open, Operate and Grow an Assisted Living Facility". We have a number of speakers including Keith Gibson from the Alzheimer's Association, Elio Patino from AARP, Avonelle Greene from Simply Healthcare Insurance, and Primary Care Physician, Dr. Michelle Powell. The seminar will be twofold: data on Advances in Therapy for the cognitively impaired, treatment options and caring for our aging family members and friends, learning about the explosive growth of the senior industry and how to capitalize on it and build economic wealth.

Len Glassman jokingly describes himself as a recovering attorney. He explains that after 4 years of law school and 12 years in practice he just wasn't happy. Unfortunately (but actually, very fortunately) he was laid off from his job as an officer at a hospital. Right then he decided he never wanted to have another job where someone else was in control of his future. The very next say he ran into an old friend who was a serial entrepreneur. She and her husband were about to start up a fitness training center and invited him to come work with them. He loved it, learned a ton, and eventually bought the business from them. He ran that business for years and expanded it to having 15 trainers. In this episode Len opens up about how fitness not only saved his physical health but also his mental health. We have a fun discussing about the best way to build a business and some of the challenges of being an entrepreneur. Before we wrap up Len provides us with a few exercises we can do to relieve the stress of sitting for long periods of time. Best of all the only equipment we need is a wall. Join us!

I'm going to tell you a story. It's not a true story, it's not even based on any specific person that I know, but it's the type of story that happens all the time. Maybe it's even happened to you or someone you know. This is the story of Jane. Jane had always dreamed of becoming a lawyer. Growing up in a low-income neighborhood, Jane had to work hard to overcome the many obstacles in her way. She was an excellent student and graduated from high school with top grades and even attended a good college and received her law degree with honors. But...she ran into a problem. Despite her impressive credentials, Jane struggled to find a job. She applied to law firm after law firm after law firm and sat for several interviews, but was always passed over for the job. She couldn't figure out why and now that the student loan payments were due, she had a lot of external pressure influencing her decisions. Jane couldn't understand why she wasn't getting hired, especially since she had done everything right, so she decided to take a job working the front desk at a law firm. After all, she had bills to pay...and as long as she got in the door, she was confident she could get the job she wanted. But that didn't happen either. Jane watched as lawyer after lawyer was brought in and hired...mean while she hadn't even been considered for those roles. And eventually...the frustration and sense of failure started to build. We won't finish Jane's story because...well, it's kind of all of our stories. Factors we cant control such as gender expression, sexuality, race, and other socioeconomic have a unique ability to limit the list of potential opportunities that come our way. And it's time that we learn about it...and not only that, but learn how to end it. So get excited, because this is Tiny Leaps, Big Changes. My guest today is Jessica Nordell.

Dr. Streicher’s Inside Information: THE Menopause Podcast

Every day women tell me they were blindsided when they started having perimenopause symptoms in their mid-40's since they assumed that menopause was years, or even a decade away. And they are pretty much shocked when I tell them that mid-forties is the normal time for estrogen levels to waver, or tank all together. But imagine if you enter menopause when you are in your 20's or 30's?  This situation is more common than most people appreciate occuring in up to 3% of women.  In this episode I am joined by Dr. Hannah Short, a graduate of the University of Cambridge and a specialist in premature menopause recognized by the British Menopause Society. She is the author of The Complete Guide to POI and Early Menopause.  We discuss:  The difference between EARLY MENOPAUSE, PREMATURE MENOPAUSE and PREMATURE OVARIAN INSUFFICIENCY, otherwise known as POI  WHY Premature Menopause occurs Why POI occurs The impact of ENVIRONMENTAL factors Why SMOKING increases the risk of premature menopause Why it is so important to DIAGNOSE and TREAT women who enter menopause early If HORMONE THERAPY is prescribed in different doses or in a different amount than for women who go through menopause at a typical time HOW LONG women should take hormone therapy NON-HORMONAL options for women who cannot take hormone therapy                                                     Dr. Hannah Short Website: https://drhannahshort.co.uk/  Twitter: @drhannahshort The Complete Guide to POI and Early Menopause GoodReads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/60382898-the-complete-guide-to-poi-and-early-menopause?

Maybe in small ways, getting passed over for a promotion, being spoken down to by your peers, or...in the case of my guest today...getting your work overlooked. Or maybe you've been the perpetrator. Choosing the cross the street at night when you see a person of color coming towards you. Or subconsciously discounting what a female colleague has to say.

How to spot modern scam techniques, from fake remote jobs to check fraud

MPR News with Angela Davis

Scamming is an industry that seeks to trick and prey on the vulnerable through a variety of platforms.       Older people have been known to fall victim to fraud, but now younger adults are the targets and they're losing money to online shopping scams, phishing emails and fake jobs. Even phone scams continue to hit millions of Americans each year, costing nearly $40 billion in 2022. MPR News host Angela Davis talks about scams and how to be a smarter consumer. We also look at how scam artists have gotten smarter and why their tricks are getting harder to identify. Guests:   Marti DeLiema is an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota School of Social Work. Susan Adams Loyd is the president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Minnesota and North Dakota  Here are four key moments from the conversation. The following transcript has been edited for length and clarity. Click the audio player above to listen to the full conversation. What are some types of scams and who do they target? Marti DeLiema: We're seeing everything from online shopping scams to romance scams and tech support scams. It might not seem that the motivating factor is trying to get money from the victims since the scammer isn't asking for anything right off the bat. Scammers use mass marketing communication approaches like telephone, internet, email, so they really cast a broad net. There are certain scam types that certain types of people are more likely to take the bait on: older adults might be more susceptible to tech support scams versus young adults, who are more susceptible to online shopping or fake remote job offers. The push to remote work environments made a lot of people go online and look for these jobs. These criminals even do mock job interviews with candidates. Then the scammer sends you a check, for example, to purchase startup equipment, but then says the check accidentally was for too much money and asks you to send the difference back. You just write them a check, and a week later the bank gets in touch with you and says the check the scammers sent you was fake. A lot of people don't know about how those bogus checks work. Susan Adams Loyd: We see examples of that same check scam twisted, not only from a tech scam but to something very unsophisticated, like a refrigerator repair company. It's very simple to get people distracted in situations that they're not familiar with and those fraudsters know very carefully how to get little incremental steps towards you taking action that benefits them. People feel shame — they go underground and they don't even tell their friends. Maybe they will tell their spouse and their children if they're elderly. If you reported it to the BBB or Federal Trade Commission you might be able to get help, but if you are ashamed you don't go into a quick mode and therefore don't respond soon enough and that buys fraudsters time to get out of dodge with your cash in hand. Tell us about scammers trying to impersonate people, law enforcement, or companies Susan Adams Loyd: These scammers are good. They're quite sophisticated. They're actors. They're fraudsters. So they use scripts and role-playing, to really get to the heart of it, and they're good at it. They've done it enough times to work through the call, the timing of it, and the tone of it to make it sound real. I'm proud to say that in 2022, there were 87 callers who called BBB right before pressing send or right before responding. And, in real time, we did a rough count and saved $504,000 worth of money. BBB is a nonprofit organization, we're a non-government agency and we're here to help consumers for free. Marti DeLiema: I want to talk about one limit of consumer education, and this is something that has been coming up in my research. People do not make their best decisions when they're in states of high emotional arousal, when they're feeling deeply fearful, or when they're feeling deeply excited. So the criminals will do everything they can to get you in those emotional states right off the bat. Because then all of the warning signs, the visual warning signs, and even people expressing their concerns will be ignored and you will follow the scammer's orders. What's the federal government doing about scams? Marti DeLiema: Scams are a lot for just one office to handle a day. So one, they're a little overwhelmed. And two, it's kind of this multiple-pronged approach to fighting fraud. Consumer education is really important and also enforcement. Most of the crimes are international, they're not easy to identify or arrest, and that presents a challenge to law enforcement. Another area that they're working on is legislation: what can they do to enforce legitimate and real companies to do more to fight impersonation scams? I want to empathize with people who feel that nothing is being done. But this is just such a challenging problem, and technology is accelerating faster than we can keep up and enforce. What organizations can help people who have been scammed? Marti DeLiema: There is a government agency called the Internet Crime Complaint Center, or IC3. IC3 is an organization that takes your complaints, and they do have the ability to do a rapid response. If you can report within 24 hours, it's possible that they will be able to help you recoup those losses, especially if it's things like a wire transfer. After that, report to the Federal Trade Commission to be part of the consumer complaint. Susan Adams Loyd: AARP is one of our closest partners with the Better Business Bureau. The consumer education that AARP does on a national basis is tremendous. And we'd love to invite you to a “scam jam” where you can share your story with others. We get together and we figure out how to learn how to fight those scammers before they find us. So we have scam jams a couple of times a year with AARP. Your stories of scams Listeners called into the show and shared their stories. Here are some of them. An 84-year-old veteran loses $60,000 I was called by the CIA, supposedly. And I had my name come up in an automobile down in Texas that I was laundering money, and that I would have to pay a fine and be in prison unless I cooperated with them. They showed me their badges in a message and said: “In order to try and catch this guy we need you to take $30,000 out of your account. We will give it back to you as well as you help us.” So I sent it to someplace in California. And then I was dumb enough to do it again and sent the other $30,000 to somebody in New Jersey. When they didn't return the money, I called the number that I previously called to talk to them and that number had been disconnected. When I called the local police, I was quite surprised because they said, “You sent money out of the city so we can't do anything really for you. But go ahead and send me a report.” I called the FBI, called the bank. I'm a veteran, 84 years of age. Those were life savings. If it weren't for Social Security, I'd be on the street. — Sam from New Brighton A fake job found on Indeed.com I'm a young professional in Minneapolis, and I've been looking for a more big-girl job as they call them. I found this company, and it seemed too good to be true because they were offering a really big salary for an entry-level position. And I feel like that's a big red flag for anybody that is looking for a job. I had like three interviews with them and there was that kind of sense of urgency. A lot of times we would end an interview and they'd say, “Well, are you willing to send us this information by 5 p.m. today? it has to be today.” I would say be careful if you're looking on Indeed.com because a lot of fake workplaces actually put out ads on that website. — Christina from Minneapolis A fake illustration job may have been money laundering I'm a freelance illustrator and cartoonist and I was targeted by a checking fraud scam. In 2021, somebody contacted me saying they were an event planner, and that they needed illustrations for a COVID prevention workshop. They were smart. They knew exactly what to say to make it sound like a legitimate illustration job. They ended up sending the check for twice the amount they were supposed to send, and I was suspicious. But they emailed me before I had a chance to even ask about it. The business name printed on the check was a real business, and it had a real physical location. The routing number was from a real bank. I even asked a bank specialist who told me it looked real. After that, they started asking me for a refund. I didn't give them any money and I was waiting for the check to bounce, but it never did. It turned out that they stole the money from a legitimate account. And I guess maybe they were using me to launder it. — Lupi from Minneapolis Scams involving bail, jail and courts I've had a couple of experiences. The first happened to my father, who is in his early 60s. He was called and told that I was in jail and that he needed to send $15,000 in bail. Fortunately, he took the time that your previous caller mentioned, he called me and figured out what was going on. The second one happened to my sister-in-law, who's a medical doctor. She was almost scammed out of $6,000 through quite an elaborate situation where they found out she was a medical witness for patients of hers and they called her saying she was in contempt of missing her court date as a witness and needed to bring this cash immediately to a court station. This apparently happened to several of her colleagues. — Ryan from Mankato An Apple Pay scam while borrowing a phone One evening after work I stopped at the gas station to fill my tank and get some snacks. This gentleman came up to me and said he was having car troubles and if he could use my phone to call roadside assistance. I let him use my phone, and he called State Farm, roadside assistance on speaker. It didn't seem like they were really getting anywhere but he kept passing my phone back to me and it kept getting locked. He was asking me to put in my pin and open it again, and one of the times he passed me my phone to unlock it, the lock screen was white instead of black. After I drove off, I saw that he had attempted to charge $150 from my Apple Pay for his Google Voice number, and I realized that must have been what happened when the lock screen was white. — Kat from Minneapolis A potential client ends up being a scammer We used to live in Minneapolis. About seven years ago, my husband who works as a freelance document translator received an email from a potential client, which is typically how his business works. He spent two days working on a translation for this gentleman, and when the time came to invoice the guy, we got an envelope in the mail with traveler's checks. The man had obviously overpaid and asked us to go ahead and cash the traveler's checks and just return the difference to him. I'm an experienced business traveler and I knew by looking at them that they were fraudulent. I contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation in downtown Minneapolis because I figured this was mail fraud, and the agent who answered the phone basically said, “we get about a dozen of these a day and we can't be bothered chasing down these little things.” — Kathy from France Resources for scam help Throughout the conversation, the guests mentioned some resources that help people who have suffered fraud, or who feel in danger of being scammed.

Currently, there are about 40 million working caregivers in the United States. What does this mean? In America, $68 trillion a year is being lost by US companies. We are losing money with absenteeism, presenteeism, and retaining our caregiver workforce. How do we support working caregivers?  My guest today is Debbie Howard, she is an author, speaker, and founder of Aging Matters International.  Thank you, Debbie, for amplifying caregiver-related challenges and providing much-needed solutions. As Debbie states, "Caregiving does not spare any generation". Debbie was running a business in Japan and had lived there for many years when she needed to move back to South Carolina to take care of her mom. In the midst of juggling work, keeping her job afloat, and the challenges that came with balancing work and caregiving turned Debbie into an advocate so others can have a better caregiving experience in the long run.     Debbie shares about: The state of the global caregiving crisis How the caregiving crisis impacts the workplace and companies The business case for companies to implement caregiver-friendly policies The ways we can identify who our caregiver employees are Where we can begin to foster employee wellness Challenges in the workplace to support caregivers The practical ways that companies can support caregivers How companies of any size can improve the offerings to support employee caregivers     About Debbie Howard Through her 30+ years of work in Japan, Debbie translates consumer research into clear strategic direction for global clients across a wide range of categories - including age-tech products and services. Also a former caregiver on a mission to change the way the world looks at caregiving, Debbie's work focuses on helping companies create more caregiver-friendly workplaces by supporting their employee caregivers, while reducing the related risks of absentee-ism, turnover, and future healthcare costs. For individuals, her offerings include curated resources to help with navigating the many aspects of caregiving, as well as a free annual self-care challenge.   Debbie co-moderates three “Rethinking Aging” Clubhouse programs (Age-Friendly Products Alliance sponsored by AARP, News for the Ages, and Shifting the Culture of Caregiving), and two podcasts: Women Who Care and Caregiver Camps, and is a frequent podcast and webinar guest.   With the launch of AMI in 2016, Debbie brought her market research acumen to the world of caregiving. Her first book (The Caregiving Journey: Information. Guidance. Inspiration.) supports individuals in going beyond logistics in managing their caregiving situations with ease and grace.   Her second book (The Caregiving Crisis: What It Costs Your Business and How You Can Fix It) was released in March 2022, and guides companies with practical ways to support their employee caregivers and create more caregiver-friendly workplaces.   To learn more and connect with Debbie Howard: https://www.thecaregivingjourney.com Contact: Debbie@thecaregivingjourney.com LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram    For Companies: Download our complimentary resources for BUSINESSES here: https://thecaregivingcrisis.com/resources/   For Individuals: Download our complimentary resources for INDIVIDUALS here: https://www.thecaregivingjourney.com/resources/   We are not medical professionals and are not providing any medical advice.
