In the past few months, we have talked a lot about high-cost drugs. We've done episodes on new innovations, equity implications, the rise of weight management drugs and more. While there is a lot to be excited about, there is a lot to be anxious about too, like high costs and impending legislation. A lot of the industry is tempted to "wait and see" what the new era of drugs will bring, but the reality is that "new era" is already here. That's why, in this episode, host Rachel (Rae) Woods invites Advisory Board pharmacy experts Rachael Peroutky and Chloe Bakst to discuss how the industry should be thinking about this new era of drugs, and why healthcare organizations can't afford to sit around today and strategize later.

It is no question that we are in an unprecedented era of technological change. Large language models and the rise of generative AI have dominated industry conversations in recent months, and for good reasons. It's clear that AI is here to stay, but what isn't so clear is how the industry should adopt it. Should you run headfirst into experimentation? Or wait for data and case studies before implementation? In this episode, host Rachel (Rae) Woods invites Advisory Board digital health experts Ty Aderhold and Elysia Culver to discuss how the industry needs to be thinking about AI adoption and integration. Throughout the conversation, they discuss what we can (and cannot) learn from past technologies, what it means to be an "early mover" or "fast follower," and why taking an incremental approach can empower your business strategy.

This week on Talk World Radio we're talking about making peace in place of the wars in Gaza and Ukraine. Mairead (Corrigan) Maguire is a Member of the Advisory Board of World BEYOND War. She is based in Northern Ireland. Mairead is a Nobel Peace Laureate and Co-founder of Peace People – Northern Ireland 1976. Mairead was born in 1944, into a family of eight children in West Belfast. At 14 she became a volunteer with a grass-roots lay organization and began in her free time to work in her local community. Mairead's volunteerism, gave her the opportunity to work with families, helping to set up the first centre for disabled children, day care and youth centres for training local youth in peaceful community service. When Internment was introduced by the British Government in 1971, Mairead and her companions visited Long Kesh Internment camp to visit prisoners and their families, who were suffering deeply from many forms of violence. Mairead, was the aunt of the three Maguire children who died, in August, 1976, as a result of being hit by an IRA getaway car after its driver was shot by a British soldier. Mairead (a pacifist) responded to the violence facing her family and community by organizing, together with Betty Williams and Ciaran McKeown, massive peace demonstrations appealing for an end to the bloodshed, and a nonviolent solution to the conflict. Together, the three co-founded the Peace People, a movement committed to building a just and nonviolent society in Northern Ireland. The Peace People organized each week, for six months, peace rallies throughout Ireland and the UK. These were attended by many thousands of people, and during this time there was a 70% decrease in the rate of violence. In 1976 Mairead, together with Betty Williams, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their actions to help bring about peace and put an end to the violence arising out of the ethnic/political conflict in their native Northern Ireland. Since receiving the Nobel Peace prize Mairead has continued to work to promote dialogue, peace and disarmament both in Northern Ireland and around the world. Mairead has visited many countries, including, USA, Russia, Palestine, North/South Korea, Afghanistan, Gaza, Iran, Syria, Congo, Iraq.

The discussion focuses on the current state of the industry and its future. “We are very cognizant of how important electricity is to every household in this country so it's very, very important for us to maintain reliability and affordability, but what is going to have to change is obviously our response to increasing growth and the need to maintain reliability for our customers,” said Kuhn.Additionally, Kuhn talks about the impact electric utilities adopting new cultural values.“We have gotten so much cleaner and we are so much committed to it, we are attracting really a tremendous number of young people into this business right now and they're coming because they see a purpose in life.”He also discusses how recent federal initiatives are spurring deep changes. “The Congress and the White House led the charge on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill that we got a few years ago and clean energy tax credits, the Inflation Reduction Act.
