Today's guest fits into one of Raise the Line's favorite categories of people: physician entrepreneur. We've talked before on the podcast about the overlapping qualities of drive, curiosity, and desire for impact that both share, and that last trait is the core interest of Dr. Navin Goyal. A great example is OFFOR Health, a mobile healthcare company he co-founded that expedites care for children in the US who face long waits for procedures. “If you're a four-year-old with dental disease and you're on Medicaid, you have an average nine-to-twelve month wait to get into an operating room. We can enable that procedure within one month,” says Goyal. His experience with OFFOR led to the formation of LOUD Capital, which allows Goyal and his partners to seek out other business opportunities that have a social impact. Since launching in 2015, LOUD has partnered with over seventy portfolio companies in healthcare and beyond. But despite his success, Goyal has embraced the concept of being an underdog, hence the title of the book about his journey, Physician Underdog, and his weekly newsletter Underdog for Good. Check out this episode with host Shiv Gaglani to find out why he likes the term, what qualities a potential investment needs to have to get him excited and what he sees as a key upside to having physicians working in a variety of industries.

One silver lining of the COVID-19 pandemic is a jump in enrollments in public health degree programs and that's welcome news to Dr. Jan Carney, director of the Master of Public Health program at the University of Vermont's Larner College of Medicine, who believes the field needs a massive injection of personnel. “We need probably an 80% increase in people working in state and local health departments to have the essentials of public health.” As Vermont's former Commissioner of Health, Carney knows the challenges public health officials face and brings those insights to Larner's online-only MPH program, which covers the broad domains of the field from epidemiology to biostatistics to environmental health and also exposes students to the particular health challenges in rural communities. The program also prepares students for perhaps the biggest challenge facing the field: communication of health information in an era of misinformation. To that end, Carney is urging more ascertainment of how different groups of people prefer to receive information and is suggesting a major change in approach. “Maybe we can start to think of public health communication more as a conversation than a one-way information flow.” Join host Michael Carrese for insights from a national force in public health into how education is evolving to prepare public health practitioners for their vital work in challenging times for the profession.Mentioned in this episode: https://www.uvm.edu/publichealth/
Could the medical system as we know it be fundamentally flawed? That's the question our guest, Dr. Jack Wolfson a board-certified cardiologist, compels us to grapple with. From his father's battle with a Parkinson's like illness, to his departure from the largest traditional cardiology group in Arizona, to creating Natural Heart Doctor, his story is an eye-opening exploration of a health approach that prioritizes treating the cause rather than the symptom.

Dr. David Clarke shares how he was in the right place at the right time to see possibly the best healing modality for unexplained chronic pain at work. He learned that the brain can generate real symptoms when high levels of stress are not fully recognized. This occurs in many people with strong, healthy minds, affecting one in six adults and one in three primary care patients.How does the brain do this? Research shows changes in the nerve pathways in the brain. These occur in people with stress, trauma, and repressed emotions that often are linked to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). With the correct treatment approach, the nerve pathways in the brain can return to normal and the pain will subside.Dr. David Clarke is the President of the Psychophysiologic Disorders Association. His organization's mission is to advance the awareness, diagnosis, and treatment of stress-related, brain-generated medical conditions.To learn more go to www.EndChronicPain.orgFind out more about the All In Running Club at www.allinhealthandwellness.com/all-in-running-clubVisit ConfidenceThroughHealth.com to find discounts to some of our favorite products.Follow me via All In Health and Wellness on Facebook or Instagram.Find my books on Amazon: No More Sugar Coating: Finding Your Happiness in a Crowded World and Confidence Through Health: Live the Healthy Lifestyle God DesignedProduction credit: Social Media Cowboys
David Young, President of R&D at Processa Pharmaceuticals, talks about the FDA's Project Optimus draft guidance on optimal dosage regimens for specific patients. Processa is modifying existing cancer-killing molecules to improve efficacy and decrease side effects by taking into account genetic factors and the benefit-risk profile of each patient. This precision medicine approach will inform clinical trial recruitment, dosing regimens and the number of patients who can be effectively helped. David explains, "There are a couple of things that make us unique. One is that we're taking the active cancer-killing molecules on the market. It's a given drug that's approved by the FDA, and we know it kills cancer. We've taken that molecule and either changed it slightly or administered it with another drug in some way to decrease or change the drug's metabolism and then to distribute more drug to the cancer cell." "So, we started to learn how they look at the benefit-risk profile, and we started to develop our version of regulatory science, and that's expanded now over the last 30 years. That expansion into regulatory science now encompasses Project Optimus, which the FDA recently has put out draft guidance on in terms of optimal dosage regimens. They as well put out some documentation on the Project Optimus initiative where you go in to determine the optimal regimen for your patient. Not just any regimen, but the optimal regimen for your patients. If you get an optimal regimen for your patients, maybe that has a certain balance of efficacy and safety. You might come up with something different than we used to do five years ago in terms of the dosage regimen." #ProcessaPharmaceuticals #ProjectOptimus #BenefitRiskProfile #Cancer #PrecisionMedicine #ClinicalTrials processapharmaceuticals.com Download the transcript here

Raise the Line's in-depth look at the potential use of psychedelic compounds in mental health treatment continues today with a focus on the role they may play in helping people overcome substance use disorders. Our guest is Dr. Jeeshan Chowdhury, whose own mental health journey led him to found Journey Colab, a company combating addiction through psychedelic care while employing a unique stakeholder model that includes indigenous communities in ownership. “We have put 10% of the founding equity of the company into an irrevocable purpose trust so that the land, the traditions and the people that our medicines and our work are inspired from can benefit from it,” explains Chowdhury. He tells host Shiv Gaglani that indigenous traditions also inform how the company approaches psychedelic therapy itself. “When we look at their use, it is always done in the context of an expert healer, often called a shaman, and it's done as part of a very well-honed protocol and in the context of a larger community.” Check out this thoughtful discussion to find out why Chowdhury thinks of the therapeutic use of psychedelics as akin to surgery, and how Journey Colab is working with rehab center partners to integrate psychedelic care through clinical trials with the goal of creating an integrated treatment program.Mentioned in this episode: https://www.journeycolab.com
Today's episode touches on some regular themes we explore on Raise the Line such as equal access to quality healthcare, provider burnout and the impact of AI on medicine, but on this episode, we have the welcome opportunity to take a look at these key issues from the perspective of a doctor-turned-entrepreneur in Brazil. Today, Dr. Bruno Lagoeiro is an executive at Afya, one of the largest medical education groups in Brazil, but he started out as a med student who was interested in solving problems he and his classmates were encountering. After years of experimentation, and guidance from a business mentor, the solution they developed was Whitebook, a mobile app for clinical decision-support that's used in tens of millions of patient encounters every year in Brazil. Join host Shiv Gaglani as he draws out the details of Dr. Lagoeiro's amazing journey to improve healthcare in a huge and diverse country that faces delivery challenges in poor and remote communities and a provider workforce being drained by bureaucracy. Despite these hurdles, Dr. Lagoeiro has an optimistic message to share about the power of providers to change healthcare and the promise of AI to allow them to focus more on the human aspects of medicine.

Among the key qualities everyone wants in their healthcare providers is a love of learning and desire to serve others. That's why we at Osmosis are confident Dr. Lewis Nasr will be a great physician and why we chose him to be the first guest in a new series of interviews on Raise the Line we're calling “Next Gen Journeys.” The series will highlight fresh perspectives on medical education and the future of healthcare offered by students and recent graduates from around the globe. Starting with Dr. Nasr is a natural choice because of the many contributions he's made to Osmosis over the last several years including service in the Osmosis Medical Education Fellowship program and being a key contributor to our Year of the Zebra initiative. In this engaging conversation with host Hillary Acer, Lewis brings the perspective of medical students trying to learn in very challenging circumstances in which their personal safety and access to basic needs can be at risk. “It's another layer of obstacles that you have to get through. This gives international students a resilience and adaptability that they can bring to clinical practice.” Lewis also discusses his interest in hematology-oncology and reflects on entering the field at a time of remarkable clinical and technical advancements. “It's exciting to see cancer go from what is perceived as a death sentence to something manageable. I really hope to be part of the scientific wave of making cancer history.” We have no doubt that he will be, and neither will you after hearing from this thoughtful, compassionate young physician.

Today's Raise the Line guest, Dr. Megan Meyer, has a pretty simple message for proponents of psychedelic-assisted therapy (PAT) who are concerned that demand for therapists will outstrip supply in the coming years: don't overlook the largest group of mental health providers in the nation. “Social workers provide more mental health services than psychologists, psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses combined and we're embedded everywhere. I don't think the psychedelic renaissance can actually achieve its aims without us,” says Meyer, who is an associate professor at the University of Maryland School of Social Work. Meyers adds that social workers also happened to be well-equipped for PAT because they're trained to act as guides in helping clients find their own voice and not impose their own perspectives or biases. Getting large numbers trained will require collaboration across disciplines, universities and training institutes such as the project she's working on with colleagues at the university's Schools of Pharmacy and Nursing to survey social workers and nurses regarding their current knowledge and training needs related to psychedelics. Join host Michael Carrese for an expansive conversation about the role social workers can play in minimizing the risks and realizing the potential of psychedelics including issues of bias and diversity, community-based models of post-therapy integration and learning from the practices of indigenous societies.Mentioned in this episode: https://www.ssw.umaryland.edu/

Brian Strem, President and CEO of Kiora Pharmaceuticals, is developing a small molecule drug to treat orphan retinal diseases. Their drug KIO-301 restores vision in patients with inherited retinal disease. By giving retinal ganglion cells the ability to sense light, signals can be sent to the brain to effectively see using cells that are not normally light-sensitive. These molecular photoswitches can change shape based on the presence or absence of light and allow a patient to see the direction and movement of light. Brian explains, "It is dependent on the specific mutation. So, we know that there are certain gene mutations that a child will literally be born with immediate signs and symptoms of that disease. Whether that is immediately being blind, so being born blind, versus some of the other ones where you don't tend to get the onset of disease symptoms until the second, or third decade of life when you have difficulty seeing in the dark. Then all of a sudden, that progresses to losing periph
