Dr. William Parker, Associate Professor of Surgery and Global Health at Duke University, will discuss the biome depletion theory and how our cleanliness is disrupting normal immune function. These processes can have profound downstream effects on maternal and child health. From the Duke Medical School: What is widely known as the “hygiene hypothesis” is more appropriately described as the biota alteration or biome depletion theory: Changes in symbiont composition in the ecosystem of the human body in Western culture has led to immune dysfunction and subsequent disease. We are working on several aspects of this theory. Our earlier studies probe the immunological differences between laboratory-raised and wild-raised animals as a means of assessing differences between humans with and without Western culture, respectively. Other studies probe the role of biome enrichment, in particular the addition of helminths, in the treatment of disease. Studies are ongoing in both humans and in animals, with particular attention to the role of biome depletion in cognitive dysfunction. We discuss the future of human health with a specific focus on our macrobiome friends, parasites, with whom we have co evolved. They are now missing and we are not better off because of it.   Please enjoy my conversation with Dr. William Parker, Dr. M

Dr. Leana Wen joined us this week to explore her personal history and its revelations, laid out in remarkably candid detail in her newly released memoir, Lifelines: A Doctor's Journey in the Fight for Public Health.  And to speak to the most pressing current challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Her childhood struggles, as a young immigrant Chinese girl living amid insecurity, taught powerful lessons about poverty, race, and health. Her tenure as Health Commissioner in Baltimore, operating in close partnership with the late Congressman Elijah Cummings, opened the way to confront opioid addiction, stigma, maternal and infant mortality, and the acute vulnerabilities of youth. In her new life in the print and cable mediascape, she follows the advice of former Senator Barbara Mikulski: “do what you are best at – and needed for.” The Biden administration needs to up its game with the public: “It's not enough just to get the science right.” It is about values, communication, and public trust. America's hardened polarization -- surrounding vaccines, masking, and distancing -- is too advanced to fix: it is best to focus on engaging individual by individual. Listen to learn more.  Dr. Leana Wen is an emergency physician and public health professor at George Washington University. She is a contributing columnist at the Washington Post and a CNN medical analyst. She's served as Baltimore's Health Commissioner.

Carmen Paun, a dynamic, fresh media voice on global health in Washington, shares her personal and career journey from Romania to Brussels, and on to her arrival in Washington D.C. one year ago, amid the pandemic, to launch POLITICO Global Pulse. This past summer, while visiting family in a small village in the Romanian countryside, she was “shocked” to discover only 10% vaccinated at that time, the pandemic seen as “all just a conspiracy.” The pandemic was the trigger in creating POLITICO Global Pulse. In its first year, it did find its audience and voice quickly. What to make of the U.S. Global Covid Summit? It re-established that “the U.S. was in charge,” now the challenge lies in execution. Faith in American leadership has diminished, while African officials remain frustrated by slow delivery and the West's export restrictions. Will the EU-US Task Force bring great transparency and accountability? “Hard to say… How fast is this going to happen?” The turn to boosters likely creates “a vicious cycle” that could leave low and lower-middle-income countries still struggling to access vaccines. Will Africa be left far behind? No. Vaccines are finally arriving. India is reopening exports. Don't expect the push by South Africa and India to suspend intellectual property to succeed. Her overall prognosis? “It is hard to be optimistic” Give a listen to learn more.

“When healthcare providers take the time to make human connections that help end suffering, patient outcomes improve and medical costs decrease.” - Dr. Stephen TrzeciakHealthcare providers are in the front line of patients acquiring chronic illnesses, diseases, or viruses. They are the ones having exceptionally close contact with different life-threatening cases. But do you ever wonder why these healthcare providers keep choosing to serve people? That is because of compassion. Compassion is one of, if not the most important virtues in medicine. Dr. Julieta Gabiola shares her story in her recent interview with G Diaries, hosted by Michelle Andrea Arville and Ernie Lopez, on how she was able to start her non-profit organization called ABCs for Global Health which was created to find practical solutions to health problems of disadvantaged and unserved communities. She shares the accomplishments of the organization and how they provide healthcare to people who are often marginalized and unable to afford medical care for themselves. ABCs for Global Health uses their medical mobile clinics to visit the barangays to treat, prevent, educate, and research acute and chronic diseases.As Alek Wek would say, “True beauty is born through our actions and aspirations and in the kindness we offer to others”. This beauty is special in a way that it changes lives, lifts people up, and makes the world a better place.

In a recent New Yorker ‘Letter from Biden's Washington,' Susan Glasser delivers a stark indictment: Trumpists and Republican leadership are consciously keeping enough people resisting the Biden administration's efforts to control the virus “to keep the disease wreaking havoc.” Why that conclusion now? “It is no accident” that 1 in 500 Americans have died, now totaling over 687,000. It's becoming obvious that President Biden cannot inoculate Americans against Fox News. In the meantime, the Biden administration, “on both foreign and domestic fronts, remains a jumble of aspirations and retains a haze of uncertainty about how to achieve them.” That directly shapes its international approach to Covid-19, including the recent Global Covid-19 Summit organized by President Biden on the margins of the UN General Assembly. It is “a statement of the obvious” that nearly half of the country is dedicated to the failure of the Biden administration. When a “flaming dumpster fire” pandemic continues in the United States -- the fourth wave fueled by vaccine refusals – the resulting domestic crisis gravely limits the ability of the United States to be a world leader on Covid-19. On the pandemic as well as Afghanistan and other foreign policy priorities, the administration is taking an approach that is far less multilateral, alliance-focused, and consultative than expected. Why? The answer is not yet clear: if the administration is simply overwhelmed by demands, or if this approach is a conscious internal “predilection.” Does she agree we are drifting inexorably towards a US-China cold war bifurcation of the world? “Yes, I do.” Do we urgently need a national commission on the pandemic? “Absolutely.” “You cannot escape history.” Please listen to know more.

If you are dealing with obesity, you might not know it but your body still has a chance to get rid of your excess weight as soon as possible. Obesity is heavily associated with other comorbidities, and the longer you have it, the harder it gets to treat. This is the reason why doctors suggest weight loss surgery as an option for patients with comorbid conditions and have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or have a BMI between 35 and 40.Bariatric surgery is one of the safest weight loss surgeries that has a record of 250,000 procedures performed each year. It helps patients increase their lifespan from the possible life-threatening weight-related health problems by making changes to their digestive system to help them reduce weight.In today's episode, we've invited Dr. Shusmita Ahmed, Associate Program Director for the General Surgery Residency program at UC Davis Medical Center who obtained her Bariatric Surgery fellowship at the same hospital. She has generously shared her knowledge about bariatric surgery and its benefits, the risks it poses, how patients are prepared for the surgery, and what to expect before, during, and after the procedure. She also discussed lifelong lifestyle changes necessary to maintain weight loss, which is essential to preserve the quality of life.Medical practitioners are gifted at educating patients about their chronic conditions and give options on how these can be treated. This episode is worth your time and undivided attention as it will enlighten you about life-saving procedures and lifestyle changes related to obesity.Memorable Quotes:There's a lot of stigmas associated with obesity and we don't want patients to not get treated because they feel stigmatized and that they feel like they're a failure. If they haven't been able to achieve weight loss, that's not the case at all. - Dr. Shusmita AhmedAs primary care, we should spend a lot more time with patients in terms of not only lifestyle modifications but also educate the patients in terms of their options. And I think we fall short in doing that. - D.

In September-October 2021, SSEAC Stories will be hosting a mini-series of podcasts exploring the role that research plays in understanding and advocating for human rights in Southeast Asia. Maternal and child health is the cornerstone of a life lived healthily. Healthy women grow healthy children, who then go on to have healthy children themselves. In resource poor settings, healthy families can influence the wider community. In this episode, Dr Thushara Dibley is joined by Associate Professor Camille Raynes-Greenow to discuss how research focussed on interventions in the (mostly) perinatal period can improve outcomes for women and children. Focusing primarily on Myanmar, Associate Professor Raynes-Greenow highlights the universal appeal of research that aims to improve maternal and newborn health, but also reveals that it can encounter challenges in contexts of severe wealth inequalities and political censorship. About Camille Raynes-Greenow: Camille is a perinatal epidemiologist, at The Sydney School of Public Health, University of Sydney. Her research aims to reduce the burden of perinatal morbidity and mortality and improve the health of women and babies particularly of those most vulnerable. Camille was part of the research team that first identified the risk of maternal supine sleeping for stillbirth in Australia. The project funded through the CRE that Camille is working on, is aiming to improve health literacy around reducing stillbirth risk for women not born in Australia. Camille is also leading a large cluster randomised controlled trial in Bangladesh of an intervention to reduce household air pollution to assess the effect on pregnancy outcomes, particularly stillbirth and neonatal mortality. Camille is Director of the Masters of Global Health program, and co-leads the Global Health and Nutrition Research Collaboration in the Sydney School of Public Health at The University of Sydney.

Dr. Monica Gandhi toured the landscape with us. The recent recall of California Governor Gavin Newsom has bipartisan roots, in dissatisfaction with the “lockdown mentality” that closed playgrounds and parks, and kept San Francisco's schools shuttered for 18 months. It was to a significant degree a “referendum on the illiberal liberals.” Once “the power of vaccines” came into force, however, California pioneered mandates, passports, and expanded testing; achieved over 80% vaccine coverage; and drove cases and deaths to exceptional lows. The future? “Immunity is the path out” to achieve control over Covid-19. Big concerns? Confused messaging around boosters terrifies the vaccinated and makes the unvaccinated believe less in vaccines. We are also witnessing rising intolerance: in our politically polarized debates over schools, vaccines, masks, and boosters, scientific discourse has lost balance and nuance.   Dr.Monica Gandhi is Professor of Medicine and Associate Chief of the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases and Global Medicine at UCSF/San Francisco General Hospital. She also serves as the medical director of the HIV Clinic at SFGH, the famous “Ward 86.”

NSW and Victoria both have roadmaps out of lockdown that project a significant re-opening once 80% of the population older than 16 is fully vaccinated later this year. The national COVID plan sets out something similar for other parts of the country too. The reality though is that next year is far from certain. The rise and fall of case numbers, the death rate, and time spent in lockdown really depend on what we do next.

In this 21st century, mental health is one of the most prevailing problems due to cases of anxiety and depression that undeniably affect many people's lives. But as US President Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “The only thing we need to fear is fear itself”, We manage and even face our fears and difficulties that hinder us to live the life we want.Resilience and courage are dynamic processes of adaptation. They are not innate, hence, we were not born with these traits but we learn and acquire them as we face the challenges and tribulations that lie ahead. That is why Filipinos are known to be resilient. They are not resilient by choice but they are resilient by the situations they've been through and the circumstances they are presented with. Resilience and courage are two key ingredients to success, and being resilient means being hopeful and grateful in everything you have. In this episode, we will talk about the key ingredients to success in the 21st century. Dr. Julieta Gabiola shares her life story: from having big dreams, growing up in poverty, and celebrating what she has achieved with her hard work and the support of family and friends. This was her speech to the Commencement Exercise for Tondo Medical Center. As she addresses the postgraduate interns, she shared her life experiences which she hopes will serve as an inspiration to others as they too strive towards success. Jump right in to listen to this episode, and remember that there is always hope as long as keep fighting for your dreams.

Dr. LaQuandra S. Nesbitt, Director of the DC Department of Health, returned as our guest to share her reflections. Her view of President Biden's six-point plan? Tying vaccination to sustained employment is the next phase: mandates will bring about an uptake in vaccines. The rising emphasis on monoclonal antibodies is a “huge initiative” that brings about a reduction in hospitalizations. The President negotiating access at-cost to over-the-counter test kits is a similarly big step. DC has avoided the worst outcomes seen elsewhere in the United States by “planning for the worst.” Plus there has been relative unity: “residents have done what we have asked them to do.” “At times of adversity, this city rises to the occasion.” Top challenges? Vaccine disinformation regarding infertility creates “myths” that remain “inexplicably” powerful. Managing confusion over boosters is “tricky” in the absence of a “single voice, single message.” Dr. LaQuandra S. Nesbitt has served since January 2015 as Director of the District of Columbia's Department of Health in Washington, D.C.

Vaccines have worked in the same way since they were invented more than 200 years ago: they use a weakened version of the targeted virus to create an immune response that the body remembers. Since COVID-19 appeared, a new kind of vaccine has emerged -- the mRNA vaccine. The mRNA vaccine is a unique delivery system that focuses specifically on the cells that are the targets of an infection. And, as Robert Salata, MD, UH infectious disease specialist and Program Director, Roe Green Center for Travel Medicine and Global Health, explains, researchers are now studying how to use this revolutionary technology to fight other diseases such as HIV, rabies and influenza.

Tom Bollyky joined us on the occasion of our 100th episode to reflect on President Biden's six-point re-set of US pandemic policy, unveiled September 9, and to discuss what can be done to break the deadlock over determining the origin of SARS-CoV-2. President Biden's patience has clearly run out, and the new approach, heavily reliant on mandates, will stir political blowback, litigation, and defiant disobedience which may slow progress versus accelerate momentum. It's “not a happy day” when people will be “pushed into a corner.” It's disappointing that the private sector did not earlier do far more. Our national narrative may however improve, as higher rates of hospitalization of children deflate the individual freedom argument. On the origins controversy, it is “utterly unsurprising” that the US intelligence review was inconclusive. The origin issue is indeed terribly important, at this historic “policy moment,” since without resolution, we are blocked in our prevention approaches. We are in a “dark environment” and there is no prospect for progress in global health unless we find a basis for cooperation between the US and China. In the meantime, we should prioritize moving ahead with more rigorous lab safety standards and end wildlife trade and wet markets. Thomas J. Bollyky is the Director of the Global Health Program and Senior Fellow for Global Health, Economics, and Development at the Council on Foreign Relations.

As we continue to talk about obesity, cardiovascular and energy metabolism are significant to each other because the blood flow of the body is regulated by hormones that control, adjust, and remodel heart metabolism. This is the reason why exercise is an important dietary approach to obesity. Cardiovascular is also one of the four pillars of exercise just like flexibility, strength, and neuromotor. A healthy lifestyle has a higher level of the cardiovascular and muscular systems along with neurochemical changes to the brain and hormonal systems. These four are the standard guidelines for optimal fitness in healthy adults or older adults. Exercise does not only prevents and treats diabetes but also improves the mood and focus of a person. However, most people fail to exercise regularly. Studies show that 25% of the US population does not engage in physical activities. Some people may not be motivated enough or some may be too busy due to their responsibilities. Another reason for this is due to emotional stress, tiredness, or frustration. And as technology progresses, we have an abundance of food or drinks to intake, gadgets or devices to watch, stream, or play games which make people have a sedentary lifestyle. In addition, 8 out of 10 people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or have obesity. As a result, high glucose levels lead to several diseases like heart disease and stroke. Even without losing weight, regular exercise can improve the blood glucose level.In today's episode, we are joined by our three guests, Dr. Drew Vercelino, Mark Monay, and Judith Legaspi as we continue the discussion about obesity, with exercise prescriptions for prevention and treatment. We discussed a lot of things, including how to get started with exercise and the optimal exercise for everyone.So, get your pen and paper because Episode 29 is highly valuable for everyone!

Rebooting Global Health: Changing How We Approach Health TechnologyInterview with Alcir Santos Neto In this episode of Faith and Family Fellowship, Dallas interviews special guest, Alcir Santos Neto, author of the "Rebooting Global Health: Changing How We Approach Health Technology".About the BookIn a world devastated by war, cyber-attacks, disease, and natural disasters, over half the global population cannot obtain essential health services. The most vulnerable among us are often pushed into poverty by out-of-pocket medical costs or left to die from preventable diseases. Rebooting Global Health: Changing How We Approach Health Technology follows trailblazing medical workers, health organizations, community leaders, and entrepreneurs who believe technology just might hold the lifesaving solution.Go beyond case studies to explore how real-world collaborations and state-of-the-art technologies can and do improve outcomes for the world's ailing healthcare systems.  In Syria, a paramedic loses his leg in the line of duty, then collaborates to produce affordable 3D printing of prosthetics for refugees. In Malawi, a budding entrepreneur responds to a deep, personal loss by turning discarded electronics into a revolutionary Electrocardiogram (ECG).  In Rwanda, an American entrepreneur collaborates with the local government to turn autonomous drones into airborne blood couriers to save lives on operating tables.  Through insightful research and authentic, boots-on-the-ground storytelling, Rebooting Global Health places your finger on the pulse of a rapidly changing entrepreneurial ecosystem, then empowers you with practical steps to improve collaboration within your workplace.About the AuthorSince World War I, the deadly realities of war have informed and accelerated medical innovation. Ambulances, antiseptics, anesthesia, penicillin, blood banks, and telemedicine—now ubiquitous in modern health care—were born on battlefields. As a former Combat Medic and EMT in the US Army, author Alcir Santos Neto has witnessed the power of innovation to save lives. And as a Brazilian-born former DACA recipient, or “Dreamer,” he has also seen the healthcare access gap between industrial cities and developing countries around the world and the rich and poor here at home. At the intersection of these firsthand accounts, Santos Neto has found a calling to global health technology and a passion to not only save lives but improve them.Buy the Book:https://www.amazon.com/Rebooting-Global-Health-Changing-Technology/dp/1636767036Thank you for listening and supporting the 'Faith and Family Fellowship PODCAST SHOW'.

Professor Larry Gostin joined us for a spirited conversation of where America as a country stands today, almost two years into Covid-19. Human ingenuity and scientific gains have been “astounding,” while our preparedness, in the face of such a “wily enemy,” has too often been “abysmal.” We experienced shock when the first wave that began in Wuhan landed at our shores, CDC bungled tests, the Trump administration stoked anti-Asian hatred and politicized essential tools – masks, vaccines, and temporary lockdowns. Public health messaging too often has been “appalling," as CDC's scientific leadership has stumbled. Now, in late 2021, we face the danger of dividing our society into two opposing camps, the vaccinated versus the unvaccinated. The Biden administration has refused to take up vaccine credentialing, a significant mistake. It has also shown remarkable leadership in trying to overcome vaccine hesitancy and refusal, and now must turn increasingly to mandates.   Larry Gostin is University Professor and Director of the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown Law.

Today's episode is the last installment of a three-part series on a health topic that's highly relevant and necessary in today's culture and generation.We've talked long and hard about why obesity is a ticking time bomb, ready to explode anytime. We continue the discussion by talking about how obesity may also be a risk factor for several diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, gallstones, and other chronic illnesses other than cosmetic conditions. So, being mindful of every food and drink intake will really be helpful to prevent obesity and to these equivalent chronic illnesses as well.There are a variety of ways on how to reduce your weight and how to manage obesity, but people have their own preferences and methods in doing so. Since each of us has different bodily conditions, some people choose to do a paleo diet, some do the Mediterranean diet, and others do intermittent fasting or ketogenic diet. The reason behind this is they consider their target to be reducing gluten.The Plant Paradox is a book recommendation that could greatly help you in choosing which diet fits you the best. Listen as Dr. Jette Gabiola, together with the two guests, Dr. Drew Verellino and Nicole Zamignani continued to elaborate the discussion about the diets recommended for healthy weight loss, specifically diets that can manage obesity. To have an idea about which diet is best for you, what to focus on, better understand how these diets work, and have a more comprehensive understanding of obesity as a fatal health condition, not just a simple social stigma, come and listen to this episode, as well as parts 1 and 2.Memorable Quotes:Be mindful of what we put in our mouth, be mindful of the social interaction that we have, and be mindful of what good food can bring to us. - Dr. Jette GabiolaFood is something very sacred because it allows us to experience life and it stimulates so many different senses: from sight, the smell, the taste, the touch, and the emotional connection with the people you're around. - Dr. Drew VercellinoChoose what diet is for you and not be so strict or hard on yourself. Maybe in the beginning you have a hard time and it's not as easy as it was for someone else. So make sure that you understand you are an individual. - Nicole ZamignaniBe compassionate with yourself. If you cannot stick to a certain diet, give yourself some room and flexibility and that will help you build your resilience. - Dr. Jette GabiolaOther resources mentioned:The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in "Healthy" Foods That Cause Disease and Weight GainAbout the Guests:Dr. Drew Vercellino has been coaching and teaching in the sports performance and fitness realm since 2008.

In conversation with Steve Morrison on August 2, Dr. Fauci began by laying out the $3.2b Antiviral Program for Pandemics. Its dual aims are quick and long-term wins. The optimal antiviral: a single pill, oral, that early in infection stops replication. Any solution has to be grounded in equity of access, at home and abroad; requires a massive increase in testing; and will rest on combination therapy to combat variants. The initial $3.2b, it is hoped, achieves success that fuels higher future investments. Private industry and academic partners are key to rapid gains and building sustainable R&D capacity. Beyond the APP, how to arrest the “pandemic of the unvaccinated? We need a national “uniformity of approach” on masks, vaccination levels of at least 1-2 million per day, quick full approval of mRNA vaccines, boosters, and vaccines available for kids “not beyond the fall.” Dr. Anthony Fauci is the Chief Medical Adviser to President Joe Biden and Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
