First identified 50 years ago, Lyme disease is a tick-borne illness endemic to many parts of the U.S. While the acute infection can be treated with antibiotics if diagnosed in time, 10-20% of people still go on to experience persistent symptoms like fatigue, brain fog, and pain. Lyme expert John Aucott talks with Stephanie Desmon about how to prevent Lyme disease, what we know about chronic Lyme, and how long COVID is helping to draw attention to it and other diseases like chronic fatigue.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led people to delay testing and treatments for a variety of diseases and conditions. This includes HIV testing.During the pandemic, the number HIV diagnosis decline, but that decline is most attributed to declines in testing, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Experts attribute this decline to less frequent visits to health centers, reduced outreach services, and shifting of public health staff to COVID-19 response activities. June 27 is National HIV Testing Day, a day to encourage people to get tested for HIV, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment.But who should be tested?"The CDC recommends that everyone over the age of 13 be tested for HIV at least once in their lifetime," says Dr. Stacey Rizza, an infectious diseases specialist at Mayo Clinic. "This is endorsed by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services and paid for by all private insurance companies. So no matter what your background is, if you've never been tested for HIV, you should get tested. And that's because many people with HIV have no idea they have it. They can be completely asymptomatic for a very long time and not only have the virus causing ill effects on themselves, but they're at risk of potentially transmitting it to others. We need to do a better job in the U.S., particularly as health care providers, to follow that recommendation, and to make sure that every adult has had an HIV test at least once in a lifetime." If HIV is not treated, it can lead to AIDS. But effective therapies can control HIV, which is why getting tested and seeking treatment is so important."We know now that if somebody is on effective HIV therapy, and the virus in their body is suppressed, it's not gone. But it's suppressed. Their risk of transmitting it to somebody else is close to zero," explains Dr. Rizza. "So if you just pause for a minute and think about that implication. That means if every human on planet Earth who had HIV were diagnosed, linked with health care, and on effective therapy, then HIV would be gone from the human race in one generation."Like many other areas of health care, health disparities play a significant role when it comes to testing, diagnosis and treatment of HIV. Those disparities have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Improving awareness and community outreach can help combat these disparities."It's the same old thing that works for every disease state," says Dr. Rizza. "Its education, engagement and role-modeling within the communities. That education is essential. And it needs to be done in the community. We can't wait for people to come to us, and then we'll teach them, we need to get into those worlds, with people who are leaders in those communities, and have ways to bring diagnosis, treatment and preventive measures to them." Dr. Rizza says disparities in diagnosing HIV face an additional challenge that some other diseases do not: stigma."It is just heartbreaking," says Dr. Rizza. "And the stigma that had been around HIV for a very long time is part of what prevents people from coming forward, from taking the initiatives to prevent the disease, to prevent the infection — and also to be diagnosed — out of fear of the answer. And, so, we also need those community leaders to help break down the stigma issue in addition to educating and bringing diagnosis and treatment closer to home."On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Rizza discusses the importance of HIV testing and improvements in therapies to treat HIV.
California allocated a record $1.5 billion for wildfire prevention and forest health in 2021. Yet Cal Fire, the agency largely in charge of prevention efforts, is struggling to track and implement projects and took years to authorize to establish a prescribed-burn workforce certification program, as required by state law. At the same time, its firefighting staff has increased substantially — demonstrating what experts have characterized as an internal prioritization of suppression over mitigation. That's all according to a monthslong investigation by California Newsroom reporters, who join us to talk about their findings.

Is the news helping us prevent future zoonotic disease pandemics by facilitating needed policy changes in animal and eco protection (namely the wildlife trade/hunting and agribusiness)? In Tune to Nature radio host and researcher Dr. Carrie Freeman, a professor of communication, shares her recent study in this 31-minute podcast analyzing the pandemic prevention solutions covered in the last 2.5 years of global news coverage of zoonotic disease and its relationship to meat (from wild animals hunted or domesticated animals farmed). She discusses findings and interesting quotes from the news stories and her recommendations of how the news media could cover this topic further (it dropped off the radar since spring of 2020) and help urge societies to curb risks they know are catalysts for pandemics (deforestation, hunting, farming, and trading in animal bodies), and cover solutions such as fostering plant-based foods as replacements and new livelihood practices for those affected by needed changes to business as usual with animals. Experts predict it's not a matter of if but when we get hit with another pandemic that likely could be deadlier than covid (such as avian influenza/ bird flu). What have we changed in our interactions with other animal species and nature to prevent this? For more information, check out an interesting documentary on this topic: End of Medicine. In Tune to Nature is a weekly show airing on Wednesdays from 6:30-7pm EST on Atlanta indie station WRFG (Radio Free Georgia) 89.3FM hosted by Carrie Freeman, Sonia Swartz, or Melody Paris.

Monkeypox, an endemic disease for a number of Central and West African countries, is having its largest outbreak outside of that region. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are over 2,500 cases of the disease in 37 countries. Canada's share of that is 168, as of June 17th when numbers were last released by PHAC. Yap Boum from Doctors Without Borders tells us about monkeypox in Central and West Africa. Then Helen Branswell, senior writer at STAT News, whose beat is infectious diseases, updates us on how monkeypox's spread is different in Europe and North America, and why the World Health Organization might label it a “public health emergency of international concern” at its meeting Thursday.

Congress is looking to pass a bipartisan gun safety proposal. And if it succeeds, the bill could come with a hefty investment in mental health treatment. Lawmakers have yet to solidify their plans, but they've said a Senate bill would include bolstering school-based mental health services, crisis intervention, substance use disorder services, and suicide prevention.Mental health providers say they'll take all the federal resources they can get, but they aren't convinced it will do much to prevent mass shootings.There's little evidence that people with mental health issues are more likely to assault or kill someone with a gun. In fact, people with mental illnesses are more likely to be the victims of this violence.One area where mental health and guns do collide is suicide, which accounts for thousands more firearm deaths every year than homicides, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.We talk about the connection between mental health and gun violence.

NightCap was invented in early 2019 by then 16-year-old Shirah Benarde from West Palm Beach, Florida. The idea came to her in a dream after hearing about the horrors of drink spiking from friends who experienced it after going off to college. Fortunately, her friends were okay, but Shirah was determined to come up with a pragmatic solution to this problem to protect her and her friends when they went off to college. She also wanted to make sure the product would be something girls would feel comfortable using. The next morning, she went to her mother's closet, grabbed a pair of pantyhose, cut them up, and attached them to a scrunchie to create the first NightCap prototype. Her brother, Michael, 21 at the time, came home from college for the summer and saw the prototype sitting on a table. As someone who had been living on a college campus for four years, he understood how prevalent this problem was — and is. Knowing that there was no product on the market that had been adopted at scale, Michael saw huge potential for NightCap due to its unbeatable convenience and reusability. Together, Michael and Shirah took action and spent the next six months working to bring NightCap from concept to reality. Nightcap was featured on ABC's hit television series Shark Tank on February 5, 2021 (Season 12 | Episode 12). Shirah and Michael struck one of the fastest deals in Shark Tank history with Shark Lori Greiner who wasted no time jumping in. In this episode, Micahel Benarde who is Co-Founder and President of NightCap joins us on another episode of Small Biz Florida to discuss the story of Night Cap, their experience on Shark Tank, and his advice for young entrepreneurs. – Check out NightCap: https://www.linkedin.com/company/nightcapit/ For more segments like these, subscribe to Small Biz Florida and Follow the official Small Biz Florida Instagram!

This is one of the treatments that are offered at the Poppy Clinic, you can receive it as a stand-alone treatment or as part of your holistic health care. IV stands for Intravenous. It is a 40-minute session during which you are administered a customized blend of vitamins intravenously, right into your bloodstream. The advantage of getting your vitamins this way is that the digestive tract is bypassed in order for you to absorb 100% of what you are getting, you are receiving the vitamins directly, and are able to get much higher doses of the vitamins than you would ever be able to get otherwise. Did you know that 1 of 3 people have a digestive compromise? This means that even if you are eating a great diet or taking all of your vitamins, you might not actually be digesting and absorbing everything. IV Vitamin Therapy is the treatment that helps you absorb 100% of vitamins into your system. Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy: - Boost your immune system - Heal from chronic disease - Fight off infections - Boost your mood - Improve sleep quality - Calm your nervous system - Health optimization - Prevention of disease - Anti-aging and collagen production boost Reach out to the Poppy Clinic! You don't need a referral. We look forward to meeting you very soon!

Join America's Roundtable co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy for a conversation with Senator Jim DeMint, former US Senator and Chairman of Conservative Partnership Institute, a great American patriot and principled leader focusing on the vital issues impacting our nation and the world. The conversation with Senator DeMint will highlight the significance of affirming U.S. Constitutional principles and the urgency to advance pro-growth policies. On America's Roundtable Radio, the timely and relevant discussion will address the Biden administration's policies, America's serious economic problems including skyrocketing inflation now at 8.6% (fastest pace in 41 years), and the high energy costs adversely impacting American families and small businesses. The U.S. economy and the nation's security is dependent on energy; however, government policies and stringent regulations being imposed from Washington, DC, have undermined America's energy independence and placed the nation at great risk. Senator DeMint will present his views on the Federal Reserve's announcement on Wednesday of a 0.75-percentage-point raise of the federal-funds rate, the central bank's largest rate hike since 1994. Senator DeMint will also address the national security crisis and humanitarian crisis at the U.S. southern border. The discussion will place the spotlight on the goals of the Democratic Party's policies which reveal a troubling vision whereby the Department of Homeland Security is set to punish Border Patrol agents while refusing to uphold a rule of law based immigration system and shore up national security at the borders. Update: 50 Illegal immigrants on the terror list were apprehended at the border by Customs and Border Protection in 2022 thus far. This figure is more than the total number caught in the last five years combined. The dangerous activities of transnational organized crime networks at the border include human trafficking and smuggling of drugs such as fentanyl. The New York Times reported, "...deaths from drug overdoses rose again to record-breaking levels in 2021, nearing 108,000, the result of an ever-worsening fentanyl crisis, according to preliminary new data published on Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention." The program will cover Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the brutal warfare resulting in 1,000 casualties per day in the Donbas region, and the significance of affirming America's long-standing policy of peace through strength. Iran is dangerously close to completing its nuclear weapons program. Senator Jim DeMint has fought tirelessly for freedom, prosperity, and traditional American values against the Washington swamp for over two decades. Today, he leads and trains a new generation of conservative warriors as Chairman of the Conservative Partnership Institute. DeMint represented South Carolina in the U.S. House (1999-2005) and U.S. Senate (2005-2013). Known for policy innovation, he authored leading conservative reforms to health care, education, taxes, and entitlements. DeMint garnered national acclaim from conservatives for leading efforts to ban congressional earmarks, the source of billions of dollars of wasteful spending for decades which had led to corruption and widespread abuse. He also successfully led the fight to stop the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill in 2007. DeMint is also the Founder of the Senate Conservatives Fund, which played a major role in the election of many of the Senate's leading conservatives like Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Tom Cotton.

Luke shares some pretty important information about possible Bear Encounters. Every encounter has the potential to end up in death. Outdoorsmen must understand that when entering bear country, their actions can either encourage a bear encounter, or prevent one. Prevention begins with knowledge and preparation.We've been traveling to bear country every year with our boys since they were very young. We've always been extra cautious when camping, hiking, and fishing in and around bear country. Bears are here, they are a real threat, and they are dangerous. There are things you can do to keep yourself safe and on alert at all times. Luke has grown up hearing all of these safety tips and we've followed through by taking the necessary steps and precautions when recreating in bear country. We do everything right.A day of fishing in grizzly country kept us on high alert, as always. We did everything right. We all had our bear spray and kept our heads on a swivel, making sure we were not being visited by a 4-legged predator. Luke moved to another location around the lake we were fishing for a short bit. When Dad called Luke back to the truck to start packing up, what we saw next made the hairs on the back of our neck stand up. A huge grizzly bear materialized in the exact same spot where Luke was fishing, just moments after he walked away. Listen to Luke tell his story...Enjoy!
As immunity wanes for many vaccinated adults and omicron and its subvariants continue to circulate, it seems that just about everyone knows someone with a case of COVID-19. The steady increase in COVID-19 infections is due to changing, highly contagious variants, explains Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group. Dr. Poland says it's still important to take the precaution of mask-wearing in public areas, even if you have been vaccinated and have received your boosters. "I can't say it enough. This is so hypercontagious that, regardless of having had three or four doses of vaccine or of having previous COVID-19, you still run an appreciable chance of getting COVID," explains Dr. Poland. "The risk in that case is not of death or hospitalization, but of the complications and long-haul symptoms of COVID-19. And that's what we're trying to prevent in people." For parents, there is positive news this week, as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel voted unanimously to authorize emergency use of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for children under 5. For this age group, the Pfizer vaccine will be given in three doses while the Moderna vaccine will be given in two doses. The FDA panel's recommendation now goes to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for approval before shots can be administered, possibly beginning as early as next week. On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Poland shares the latest COVID-19 news, answers listener questions, and discusses another infectious disease outbreak: monkeypox.

Burnout isn't an overnight phenomenon. It compounds slowly – often imperceptibly – over time and when it shows up can often be crippling. That's where Elizabeth Collins – aka “The Burnout Witch” – comes in. On this episode of She Turned Entrepreneur we hear about her journey from an education and early career in western-based health care to an evolving eastern practice that includes acupuncture and tarot cards. It's a very specific niche that Elizabeth fully owns, and she coaches others in the integrative and functional medicine space to do the same! Entrepreneurship starts with knowing ourselves, our values and the value we bring to the world, so much of Elizabeth's practice is devoted to establishing that clear sense of self and boundaries. She uses values exercises (links for which are provided) and also offers key strategies for staving off encroaching burnout. Something as simple as a coffee mug that makes you smile can serve a protective function. Without intentionality, our bodies and spirits are subject to burnout. So whether we come to entrepreneurialism deliberately or, like Elizabeth, through a somewhat meandering path, it's critically important that we protect our core beliefs. “It took me a long time to learn who I am in order to know what I need in my business,” she says. Once our mission is clearly defined, we're freed up to bring our best – and truest – selves to the fore! Click here to listen to, rate and review this or previous She Turned Entrepreneur episodes. Here are key takeaways from the conversation:· Entrepreneurship can be something you land on by chance rather than by design.· Do you have burnout? There are therapies to help you recover. · If you've tried to meditate without success, it may be your brain is stuck in overwhelm.· Set intentional boundaries that recognize intrusion and minimize burnout.· The Power of a Coffee Mug: Creating a safe space helps fend off burnout.· Answering texts at midnight? It's perfectly normal to have standard business hours. In fact, your clients will respect you for it.· Ready to live into your values? Here's a step-by-step Values Exercise.· Here's a social media tip: If creating content exhausts you, consider tagging screen shots of work you endorse and adding your own take on why it's worthwhile.· Whatever product, skill or service you offer is uniquely your own – so brand it that way! Here's a quick look into the episode:· Elizabeth's early experience working within the traditional western health care framework morphed into an interest in alternative integrative techniques for sustained wellness.· Acupuncturists are de facto entrepreneurs because they constitute a small sector without well-defined platforms.· About the blend of functional medicine, acupuncture and coaching that Elizabeth offers.· A closer look at burnout: o Prevention looks like:§ Modulating diet.§ Integrating exercise.§ Meditation.§ Curating a safe, comfortable environment.o Treatment looks like:§ Finding ways to undo damage that shuts down brain function.§ Addressing underlying physiological and emotional imbalances.§ Assessing vitamin and mineral levels.§ Putting in place modest, small steps towards meditation.· How to distinguish the difference between burnout vs. general fatigue vs. depression:o Depression feels like a weighted blanket, tamping down everything.o Burnout tends to be more situational and tied to identifiable responses to things like the constant pinging of your email. · The challenges in jumping from a medical career into an entrepreneurial orientation:o Acupuncture practices aren't prevalent so there was no ready template.o Elizabeth's studies didn't include any business training.o It was all too easy to follow “accepted” business practices that were out of alignment with Elizabeth's values and interests.o Boundaries had to be set around things like business hours.· Elizabeth and Dori talk about the importance of establishing personal core values and parameters around things like networking and social media.· The more Elizabeth has embraced her very specific niche and mix of east-west orientation, the more successful she has been with her brand.· Advice for aspiring entrepreneurs and coaches in the wellness space:o Do a values exercise to establish priorities.o Get very clear about who you are and the boundaries you want to set. o Know deeply that what you offer the world is 100% unique.· Recommended Reading:o "The Bouncebackability Factor: End Burnout, Gain Resilience, and Change the World," by Caitlyn Donovan.

And here's a link for her two-part values exercise. About Elizabeth:Elizabeth was a full time Emergency Medical Technician prior to obtaining her Master's degree from the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental medicine in Seneca Falls, New York. She is trained in both Chinese and Japanese styles of acupuncture. She completed an internship at the world renowned Zhejiang Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Hangzhou, P.R. China, and has comprehensive training in Zheng Gu Tui Na bodywork from Tom Bisio, L.Ac. in New York City. Additionally, she studied the treatment of acute and chronic pain at the EASTMedicine Seminar Series at the University of Westminster, London, UK. With experience in both Western and Eastern spheres, she is committed to bringing a well-rounded, holistic approach to each patient encounter.

Today on Midday, we take up an issue that has flummoxed Congress for about as long as gun regulation: that is, immigration, and what to do about the southern border. At the center of the debate is Title 42, a 1940s-era law that allows federal health authorities to prohibit migration into the US to prevent the spread of contagious diseases. The CDC — the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia — invoked Title 42 in March, 2020, at the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic. Critics call it “a border-control tool masquerading as a public health order.” The Biden Administration moved to discontinue the policy, but last month, a Louisiana Federal District Judge ordered that the policy stay in place, in part, because the administration had failed to adequately consider how much migration would surge when the policy ends, and the cost to states to provide services to the migrants who are seeking asylum. That ruling is under appeal. We begin our discussion today withSheriff Mark Lamb. He has been the Sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona since 2017. He is a close ally of former President Trump and a vocal critic of the Biden Administration's handling of immigration. He is the founder of a group of sheriffs called “Protect America Now,” and he is a self-described “constitutional conservative.” Later in the hour, Tom gets another perspective on Title 42 from two local immigration advocates: Krish Vignarajah, the President and CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, and Ruben Chandrasekar, the executive director of the International Rescue Committee in Maryland.

Katie is a Creative Director focusing on Brand and Marketing Design. She helps her clients translate their voice and vision into strategic visual concepts that communicate clearly and inspire their audiences so they can hit all their business goals. She brings a background designing for Prevention, Men's Health, Women's Health, Organic Gardening, Organic Style and Runner's World Magazines. She also runs a household of 2 amazing kids with her husband while trying to figure out how to drastically cut the to-do list so they can eat dinner together every night, finally take that family vacation to Yosemite, and hang out by the pool, and sometimes the beach, as much as possible. Here's what we covered on the episode: Katie's Start in Design + Pursuing a Company She Believed In How Katie and I met during a mastermind I used to do called, From Designer to Director - we worked together for a year and have stayed in touch ever since I explain that Katie has the experience in the agency side that I've been craving the last few years and that it's been fun watching her evolve from an independent designer to a virtual agency owner Katie is here to share her traditional and nontraditional art/creative director experience and share how people can approach their marketing and design from a creative director's point of view to drive results The first job Katie had in design was as a desktop publisher at a boutique agency that she worked at for 7 years - after that, she moved into publishing How Katie originally received a BA in history but then went back to school for art Katie shares that at the boutique agency, they did a lot of catalogs for pharmaceutical companies and that she was able to learn the entire process because she saw each part of the project through When Katie decided to move on from the boutique agency, her goal was to only do design work After the boutique agency, Katie worked for a publisher that had a book and magazine division - some of the biggest magazines at that point were Prevention and Men's Health - then eventually, Women's Health and Runner's World came out The first project Katie worked on at the publisher was for Backpacker Magazine, and she says that the work was so beautiful that she thought she wanted to work there for the rest of her life How Katie had originally applied for a job at the publisher but didn't get it, so they called her a couple of weeks later to hire her as an onsite freelancer for 2 weeks to do one job, but she ended up staying there for 8 years Katie shares that she had been trying to work for this publishing company for years before working there, and because she kept following up, they eventually hired her The whole goal for Katie was to work for a company she believed in, like the health and wellness publisher, while becoming a better designer Katie shares that she got to do stuff for Betty Crocker, Al Gore's book, Flat Belly Diet - there was so much variety that really helped Katie learn all the different directions she could go When looking for jobs, Katie believes if you are the right fit and it's the right time, it will work out, and if not, that's not the right place for you at that moment - understand that people are busy, it might have nothing to do with you; they're doing what they need to move in the direction that's right for them Katie shares that she wanted to work at this publisher for at least 10 years before she started working there Starting a Branding + Marketing Business After having her 2nd son, Katie didn't know if she could do it all or if it made financial sense to be working at the publishing company, so she decided to leave and stay home with her kids for about 10 years How Katie always knew she wanted to start her own business; she didn't know when, but in 2017/18, her kids were getting older, so she decided to play around with it and figure out what she wanted to do, which is when we met, while Katie was trying to figure it out The first thing Katie did was figure out her own stuff, like creating a website, figuring out what she wanted to say and what she wanted to offer When Katie first started her business, she started doing branding work for small clients to feel out if it made sense for her if she could help these people, and if her process was working - after that, she did some sales pages Because Katie has so much experience, she started by looking at the things that frustrated her, and that was people designing things, but it has no cohesion with anything else they're putting out Katie explains that although she loves doing lots of different things, she decided to do branding first because when people aren't focused on the overarching umbrella of their direction, what they're trying to say, do and how they want people to feel in every piece of their marketing, they miss something Anything you give to a customer or use to try to sell your service, product, or business should have cohesion - this means your social media posts, website, deliverables, etc. The concepts behind Katie's traditional editorial design and brand strategy are the same; she explains that everything has just moved digital now, but it's the same idea as with print Katie explains that now, she works with mostly female entrepreneurs but will take on other clients if she feels they are a good fit and works on their branding and marketing In Katie's business, they start by figuring out their branding, if they need it - Katie shares that one client had perfectly good branding but didn't know what to do with it to gain traction Some of Katie's favorite things about having her own business are having control over her own time, who she works with, and being home and spending time with her family Katie explains how she and her family had to navigate the pandemic with school and that it caused her to press pause on her business for a bit - now she feels like she's able to put herself out there again because things are a little more consistent with her kids Now that her kids are older, Katie says she has more time than ever to work Approaching Marketing Like a Creative Director + Katie's Offers Katie wants people who are running their business by themselves to understand that they are doing at least 5 jobs right now A creative director is usually looking over the big picture; they're looking over copy and design - they aren't specifically doing it but are helping by giving direction on it In the corporate world, you have an art director, copywriter, creative director, and other people who are looking at it from their point of view, so when you're running a business by yourself, Katie says to give yourself grace because it's a lot Sometimes clients will come to Katie, and sometimes she will reach out to potential clients because she believes in what they are doing - sometimes they want to work with her, and sometimes they don't, which is completely fine If clients come to Katie with a brand they are happy with, she is more than happy to work with them on using that brand and designing marketing pieces for them Other clients come to Katie because their brand is no longer working for them due to changes, so their brand needs to change to show what they're really doing now Katie shares that she usually doesn't work with someone until they are 3 years in because it doesn't make sense for them to make that investment until they truly know what they're offering and what they want to put out there If a client comes to Katie needing a rebrand, she will do the brand identity for them and says that her package has a couple of pieces of marketing Katie starts by sending clients a lot of questions, then has a long conversation to go over all those questions because people change their minds and because she needs to fully understand what they're telling her, so she doesn't misinterpret it When Katie is on the same page as her clients, there aren't as many issues moving forwards, and if there are, they fix them After the brand identity, they work on the marketing pieces because some people don't know what to do when you hand them all the elements of the brand - the layout needs to be done well because if it's not, no one will read your stuff Katie gets clients through relationship building as much as she can - she also reaches out to a lot of people and is finally getting her Instagram running again People want to work with people that they like, which is why Katie says relationship building is so important While listening to a podcast, Katie heard a great quote, so she designed something with the quote and sent them an email of it, and posted it to their Facebook group - a few days later, Katie had a meeting set up with the person she had emailed for some opportunities to work with them and ended up designing a landing page for them Connect with Katie through her website or on Instagram Links mentioned: Katie Seitzer Design Connect with Katie on Instagram Like what you heard?

Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, by 70%, and is the number one most costly disease - “It's not because its happening more often it's because of bad lifestyle and medications that prolong life but don't get rid of pathological processes that cause dementia so you have a whole lot of people living with this devastating disease.”This week we speak to THE ultimate brain-powered couple! Neuroscientists Dr Dean and Ayesha Sherzai are a phenomenal pair, aside from the impressive list of credentials after both of their names, they have dedicated their lives to behavioural change models and brain health initiatives. Co-director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Program at Loma Linda University, Dr Dean completed two fellowships at National Institutes of Health, and UC San Diego. He also has 2 masters degrees in clinical research and epidemiology, an executive leadership degree from Harvard Business School, and a PhD in Healthcare Leadership. And just when you thought that was already enough achievements for one person, in 2002, Dr Dean was asked by the World Bank to help lead their health delivery project in Afghanistan. While there, he was asked by President Karzai to become the Deputy Minister of Health and focused on bringing together all the stakeholders around the vision of rapid delivery of the basic package of health services and women's empowerment. This process was deemed by LANCET as the most successful plan in any post-conflict county. This plan also helped empower more than 20,000 Afghan women by making them the only source of health care in the most remote of communities. In 2013, he helped create the Afghan Health Initiative in order to empower the Afghan diaspora with their own health. Currently, along with his wife Dr. Ayesha, they are leading the largest community-based brain health initiative in the world through their online work in Brain Health Revolution.Dr. Ayesha, also a neurologist and co-director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Program at Loma Linda University, where she leads the Lifestyle Program for the Prevention of Neurological Diseases. Is also a trained plant-based culinary artist.She holds a master's in advanced sciences from UCSD. Subsequent to completing her residency Dr. Ayesha completed a fellowship in vascular neurology from Columbia University and is currently enrolled to finish a PhD in women's leadership.We think it's safe to say that when it comes to brains, these pair know what they are talking about!“There are good stresses and bad stresses. Bad stress is when you are involved in activities that are not driven by your purposes… you don't have a runway that is yours. Whereas good stress is based around activities that do drive your purpose… our brains are made to be active, it craves to be pushed and challenged around its purpose…”In this episode, we discuss lifestyle choices, nutrition, purpose, Alzheimers, dementia, food that fuel your brain, activities that fuel your brain and, the data to support it.It truly is an amazing episode we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!Lots of love,Dave & SteveTo learn more about Dr's Sherzai check out their website: https://teamsherzai.com/And their latest book: The 30 Day Alzheimer's SolutionsProduced by Sara Fawsitt and Sean Cahill See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
