Regular listeners to Raise the Line know that research into rare diseases should matter to everybody because it has led to treatments for much more common conditions that have improved and saved millions of lives. Statins are usually the prime example of that. Well, on this episode we're going to get into much more detail on this point with someone who literally wrote the book on the subject: Dr. Jules Berman. His 2014 work published by Elsevier, Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs, Keys to Understanding and Treating the Common Diseases, shows that much of what we now know about common diseases has been achieved by studying rare diseases, and therefore, accelerating progress in the field of rare diseases will lead to yet more advances affecting common conditions. “If you have a rare disease and you think about the phenotype that results from it, you can often find that same phenotype occurring much more commonly in acquired disease, so the treatment for the rare disease can often help people with the acquired disease.” Don't miss this provocative conversation with host Michael Carrese as Dr. Berman shares why he thinks researching one rare disease at a time is a flawed approach, especially in light of his belief that there are more than 50,000 rare conditions.

“The qualities of a provider that were envisioned fifty years ago are completely different from what the world needs for tomorrow. It's completely different,” insists Dr. Abebe Bekele, who is entrusted with educating this new breed of physician at the University of Global Health Equity in Rwanda. As Bekele explains to host Shiv Gaglani in this special in-person interview on the campus of UGHE in Butaro, Rwanda, COVID-19 has demonstrated that doctors now need to be able to serve as leaders of institutions, manage large projects, raise money and interface with influential public sector players such as policymakers and journalists. The program at UGHE has been designed with that in mind by providing a grounding in liberal arts and humanities along with the necessary medical content. As you'll learn in this insightful conversation, the relatively young school -- which was established by Partners in Health in 2015 -- is taking a thoughtful approach to meeting healthcare needs in the region through admissions policies and scholarships that are boosting the number of female physicians and incentivizing its graduates to practice medicine in their home communities. Beyond connecting with Dr. Bekele, Shiv's visit gave him a chance to meet with students and faculty to gain a deeper understanding of the partnership Osmosis has with UGHE which is part of a larger effort to support medical education in Sub-Saharan Africa, including in Namibia where he was born. As you'll hear, Shiv came away seeing UGHE as a model for health education in an increasingly interconnected world. Mentioned in this episode: https://ughe.org/

“Our rare disease community is looking to solve for many different types of policy barriers because we have a very diverse patient community,” says Annie Kennedy, who was drawn to the rare disease issue due to some personal experience early in her life.  After spending many years as a patient advocate -- including being with patients during provider visits -- she has developed a keen understanding of where the healthcare system can be improved to do justice to rare disease patients and families. That insight informs her work as chief of Policy, Advocacy and Patient Engagement at the EveryLife Foundation where she helps provide patient communities with tools and resources they can use to make their voice heard in the policy arena. In fact, next week, EveryLife is holding its annual Rare Disease Week on Capitol Hill during which members of the rare disease community will meet with lawmakers in Washington to provide meaningful perspectives and encourage their support. “There are more than thirty million Americans living with rare diseases, so this is a real public health priority,” she tells Raise the Line host Michael Carrese. One resource EveryLife has brought to the table is a study on the total cost of living with a rare disease, not just the costs of medical care, which is helping to inform policy discussions. You'll also learn about some key steps pharma companies, insurers and providers can take to support the rare disease community and where the field is heading in the next few years.  Mentioned in this episode: https://everylifefoundation.org/

“In about three weeks, I went from a completely normal thirty-year-old to somebody with a heart transplant. It was crazy,” says Dr. Alin Gragossian, who shares her remarkable experience on this edition of Raise the Line. What makes her tale even more interesting is that at the time of the life-threatening heart episode that necessitated the transplant, she was finishing up a residency in emergency medicine. In fact, Dr. Gragossian is dually trained in emergency medicine and critical care medicine. Since her transplant, she's been using her platform to share her unique experiences with other health professionals and raise awareness about the importance of organ donation. “I've had a lot of amazing lessons from what I call ‘patient school' that medical school never really taught me,” she tells host Michael Carrese. Listen in to this fascinating episode to hear Dr. Gragossian describe what life is like after an organ transplant and the lessons learned as a transplant patient that she's applying to her medical career. She gets candid about what she would change about medical school curriculums and what would encourage more people to become organ donors. Then, she talks about her podcast, “Both Sides of the Stethoscope” and emphasizes the power of strong patient communities and support groups.

Transcript: Are you curious about how the healthcare system works in the U.S.? In this episode, I will explain the basics of the American healthcare system. There is not one universal system, but a range of public and private insurance options. I will lay out how these plans work so that you can gain a better understanding. And yes. Contrary to what some people assume, public health care exists in the USA. There are several public systems, both federal and state. All Americans must have health insurance or face a federal offense. Therefore, everyone should be properly insured. If someone is unemployed, they may be eligible for federal or state public insurance programs to help them access the necessary health care services. Let's find out more about public health in the U.S. In 1965, the federal government created Medicare and Medicaid, which provided health coverage to the elders and the poorest segments of the population. What are Medicare and Medicaid? Medicare is a federal health insurance program primarily available to people 65 or older, certain younger people with disabilities, or people with End-Stage Renal Disease. Medicaid offers health insurance to countless Americans, such as eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, senior citizens, and people with disabilities. States must follow federal rules while running the program, which is funded by both state and federal money. Other programs, such as the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), is a federal-state partnership program administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Children's Health Insurance Program provides health insurance coverage to low-income children and pregnant women who do not qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford private health insurance. I hope you found this episode interesting. In the next one, I will continue talking about healthcare in the U.S. [END OF THE EXTRACT]   Get the transcript here: SpeakEnglishPodcast.com/podcast

Dr. Erkeda DeRouen is joined again by Dr. Stephanie Pearson. In this episode, Dr. Pearson steers from disability insurances to life insurances. She will give us an insight of the different types of life insurances and how medical professionals and students can choose which type of insurance they can select from depending on their lifestyle.   [00:21] Re-Introduction of Stephanie Pearson [03:54] About Life Insurances [07:26] Why Buy Life Insurance? [11:05] Difference Between Term and Whole Insurance [16:22] Figuring Out the Right Coverage For You [21:00] What Would You Change in the Healthcare System   Life Insurances Unlike disability insurances, life insurances serve more as an umbrella insurance for individuals regarding health, benefits, and other safety nets depending on ones' lifestyle. For medical students and practitioners, life insurance will be an essential purchase down the line particularly for individuals who plan to start or have a family. Life insurances are customizable and more flexible to change depending on the person and what they want to be more secure about.   Knowing You're Covered The importance of why insurance exists is for individuals to be covered in terms of health, giving them an extra life line in case bad things may happen. Being a health practitioner does not always guarantee that you are 100% covered, being that most of them are exposed to contagious illnesses and unwanted accidents. It's essential to know and measure what you want insurance to cover in your life now, beit medical, education, mortgages, etc.   You can reach Dr. Pearson through her Facebook, Instagram, and Linkedin, or you may also reach her through her website and landline that is 610 658 325.

Functional Medicine: Healing The Root Cause Of Disease

A Quest for Well-Being

— The goal of functional medicine is to find the root cause of disease using science-based methods. All symptoms are considered interrelated in the functional medicine model, since the body is viewed as an integrated whole. Therefore, a problem in one part of the body does not simply affect that part, but also affects other parts. In functional medicine, genetics, diet, lifestyle, and environment are taken into consideration, along with their interaction with the various body systems. A natural state of equilibrium or balance is restored to the body by identifying and treating its root cause. In contrast to conventional medicine, which treats symptoms largely without addressing the underlying problem, this method is radically different. Valeria interviews Dr. Leke Asong — He is the author of  “How To Stay Ahead Of Your Doctor And Influence Your Health: Simple, Practical and Effective Insider Tips to Utilize the Healthcare System to Your Advantage and Stay Healthy.” Dr. Leke Asong is a practicing NHS General Practitioner (Family Dr), Functional Medicine Doctor and Wellness Consultant from England, UK. For years he suffered from poor gut and overall health. He saw the best specialists in different fields, but he was told everything was normal-None had the answers. On starting GP training, Dr. Leke Asong quickly realized there were many patients in his position who were suffering despite having normal blood tests and scans. That's when he was convinced conventional medicine did not have all the answers, specifically with regard to chronic diseases. This set he on a relentless journey not only to fix his health but also the health of his patients. Along Dr. Leke Asong's journey, he discovered functional medicine, a science-based model that seeks to find the root cause of disease. In the end, he fixed his gut and overall health. In order to share what he has learned and help NHS patients, he wrote the book titled How To Stay Ahead of Your Doctor and Influence Your Health. Dr. Leke Asong also launched Gut Health Medic, an online website where he sees patients with difficult-to-treat gut and related disorders. He plans to launch Wellness Programs via Gut Health Medic in the next few months. Dr. Leke Asong is also an inventor, with products mainly in the kitchen space. To learn more about Dr. Leke Asong and his work, please visit: guthealthmedic.co.uk               — This podcast is a quest for well-being, a quest for a meaningful life through the exploration of fundamental truths, enlightening ideas, insights on physical, mental, and spiritual health. The inspiration is Love. The aspiration is to awaken new ways of thinking that can lead us to a new way of being, being well.
