In the mid 1980's as the timber and mill industry in Central Oregon was in a downturn, a group of local community members began providing free nutritious meals in a safe and caring environment to anyone in need.   36 years later that small group has evolved into the present-day Family Kitchen organization and continues the mission by providing over 9,000 meals a month to those in our region feeling the reality that comes with food insecurity.    On episode #20, I have the pleasure of sitting down with Donna Burklo, Program Director for Family Kitchen and Family Kitchen volunteer and community member Ruth Williamson to discuss the role Family Kitchen plays as we see an increase of both food and housing insecurity in Central Oregon.  Donna, Ruth thanks for sharing your time and talents with me, I learned a lot from you both.

This week on 5.6.7.EIGHT, Aleksandra interviews David Leventhal, Program Director at Dance for PD — a part of the Mark Morris Dance Group. Through the program — which is on its 20th year — David teaches dance classes for people living with Parkinson's disease and trains other teaching artists to do the same. What started as a humble six-person dance class has now grown to serve 300 communities across 30 different countries. David has received numerous humanitarian awards for his work and has contributed to several books and peer-reviewed studies on dance and Parkinson's Disease. David is a true believer in the healing power of dance and is proactively teaching others to also believe. There's a reason why his course has exploded over the past 20 years — the effect of dance on those with Parkinson's Disease is simply too great to deny. On the podcast, David gives a brief history of Dance for PD and explains why he believes music and movement has a profound impact on all people — but especially on those with Parkinson's. Moving Quotes: ”It's that combination of the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional — together, inseparable — that makes dance such a powerful tool to maintain wellbeing and quality of life for everybody. But, particularly, for people with Parkinson's.” “Dance and dancers have a significant role in maintaining and improving quality of life among our older neighbors — and, in our case, among people with Parkinson's.” ”In our classes, we're not there to teach a therapy session. We're not there to talk about Parkinson's. We're there to address movement as dancers. And it's helpful for people with Parkinson's to think about movement the way that dancers do.” ”Music is like a red carpet that rolls out in front of you. Dance and music together are a red carpet that provides a roadmap for people with Parkinson's to move.” ”Keep your eyes open for opportunities that interest you.” ”Follow your passions. Multiple passions. Sometimes dancers get trapped in that one passion. As much as you love dance and are committed to it, keep thinking about other things that interest you… Keep nurturing those other passions while you're still dancing.”   Bullet Points (w/ timestamps) - Highlighting key topics discussed: 2:49: David discusses the joy of leading a program that's going on its 20th year and the role of dance in helping those with Parkinson's Disease. 5:19: David gives a brief history of his program and details what's involved. 10:19: Leventhal explains the events that led to his company growing from a small 6-person class to a global network. 14:03: David describes the three distinct groups of people that have been integral to the program's growth. 18:30: Leventhal gives his theories on why music and movement are uniquely effective versus traditional therapy methods. 25:56: David describes how his Dance for PD courses are both similar and different from country-to-country. 31:25: Leventhal, who holds a nontraditional career in dance, gives some advice for anyone pursuing a career in dance that's away from the stage. 37:12: David discusses the future for Dance for PD and how he'd like the company to become more accessible in many different ways.   Bullet List of Resources –  David Leventhal LinkedIn Dance for PD Company Website Twitter Facebook

The romance between our guest, Kim Curry, and the radio was love at first sight, or, to be more accurate, love at first listen. Born and raised in a small town in Colorado, Cañon City, Kim went to "babysit" the only radio station in the city on Sundays, and after hearing his own voice on the speakers, he was hooked. After studying Broadcasting at Colorado State University, Kim built a 30+ years career as a DJ and Program Director for the most prestigious radio stations in the country. Kim's career was abruptly interrupted by a multiple sclerosis diagnosis, making him look for new ways of going through his life with the same energy and enthusiasm. Kim Curry, aka Kid Curry, is a former DJ and Program Director and Author of three books, "The Death of Fairness," "Come Get Me Mother, I'm Through," and the soon-to-be-published "The Return to Fairness."In this episode, Kim kindly takes us back to his childhood, narrating the events that made him fall in love with radio broadcasting, his successful projects, and how his health started deteriorating under the stress of being a Program Director for so many years. We talk about how the diagnosis impacted Kim and his family's lives and how they supported him through the first hard years. We also delve into Kim's passion for writing and his learning process to become a full-time writer.Tune in to Episode 135 to learn Kim's story of resilience, overcoming adversity, and finding new reasons to thrive every day.

Games are an established aide in pre-college mathematics education. Meanwhile, innumerable popular books have investigated the mathematics of games. In a new edited volume for the AMS/MAA Classroom Resource Materials Series, topologist and NSF educational program director Mindy Capaldi and contributors join advanced topics with innovative lesson designs in possibly the first book of game-based mathematics education for college curricula. Teaching Mathematics Through Games (MAA Press, 2020) comprises lesson material for the full breadth of coursework taken by math students involving just as diverse and often surprising a breadth of games. I've become interested in how edited collections come about, especially in mathematics, so i took some time at the start to ask Dr. Capaldi about the conception and production of this project. We then discussed a selection of six of the book's seventeen chapters that offer a sense of its scope and a taste of its value. To touch briefly on some chapters we did not discuss: Christine Latulippe use the combinatorial format of Sudoku and dates in the history of mathematics to practice converting between numeration systems; and Jacob Heidenreich adapts the game play of Battleship to hone students' understanding of properties of functions. In addition to a detailed description of game play and how it ties in to the topic, each chapter contains exercises, problems, or activities that build upon the core lesson, and an online supplement provides material to support the lessons in practice. The book is designed specifically for instructors and provides rich material for an active learning curriculum, but avid and curious gamers and math geeks will also find much to enjoy.

Grief, compassion, comfort, and addiction counseling – today from CJ McMurry, from The Refuge, and Dr. Mark E. Shaw, Founder of The Addiction Connection. CJ is a Commissioned Addictions Biblical Counselor with TAC, and serves The Refuge Program Director. The compassion of Jesus toward Mary and Martha when Lazarus died. "Holed up" and "locked down," or bold in Christ? Eccl 7:1-9 "A good name is better than precious ointment, and the day of death than the day of birth. It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting, for this is the end of all mankind, and the living will lay it to heart. Sorrow is better than laughter, for by sadness of face the heart is made glad. The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth. It is better for a man to hear the rebuke of the wise than to hear the song of fools." Connecting the dots from mourning to the heart desire problem of addiction. Psalm 90:12 "So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom." Death shuts the mouth and quiets the noise in a "sobering" way. Mirthing? 2020 Stats on alcohol-related reasons for death vs. covid John 16:33 Proverbs 14:12 "There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death."

Video Version https://vimeo.com/702374226 About the Podcast My guest today is Tim Pettry, Program Director for Continuous Improvement at the Cleveland Clinic's Akron General (CCAG) Hospital where he directs the implementation of a Culture of Improvement for over 5,500 caregivers, utilizing the Cleveland Clinic Improvement Model. One of the biggest “take-aways” of this conversation is the difference in syntax between manufacturing and healthcare that needs to be considered when attempting to deploy an Continuous Improvement program in a healthcare environment. But we start the conversation at the beginning (where else?) with Tim's 18 years of experience at Ford Motor Company at their Cleveland Manufacturing Site. As a result of the continuous improvement efforts of Tim and his colleagues, Ford won the Shingo Prize with Tim himself being appointed to the Shingo Institute's Board of Examiners in 1996. I am sure you will enjoy listening to the conversation as much as I did. Give a listen. About Tim Pettry Tim Pettry is the Program Director, Continuous Improvement at Cleveland Clinic Akron General (CCAG) where he directs the implementation of a Culture of Improvement for over 5,500 caregivers, utilizing the Cleveland Clinic Improvement Model. He has been a member of a Continuous Improvement team since 2008 that serves over 70,000 Cleveland Clinic caregivers worldwide. Prior to jumping into the Healthcare field, he spent 18 years with the Ford Motor Company at their Cleveland Manufacturing Site in several roles including Cost Analyst, Training Manager, and Ford Production System Coordinator. His final year at Ford he served as a Ford Production System Coach for Powertrain Operations. Tim's career started in retailing as a Department Manager for the May Company (now part of Macy's) where he learned to appreciate the concepts of customer service. Recognizing that a career in Retailing did not fit with his new role as a father, Tim joined Ernst & Whinney's (now Ernst & Young) National Client Services department in Cleveland, where he led a team of 6 analysts and multiple students who were responsible for providing secondary research data and analysis in support of major request for proposals for Audit and Consulting services, and maintaining the firm's Mailing and Alumni programs. Tim's passion for continuous improvement work comes from participating in and leading several cultural transformation efforts while at Ford and the Cleveland Clinic. A highlight of his career was helping to save Ford's Cleveland Engine Plant 1 from closing in 2002. The work there was recognized as one of the pivotal events in valuing work and delivering results in the book, “Inside the Ford-UAW Transformation” Tim was appointed to the Shingo Institute's Board of Examiners in 1996 after leading the team responsible for writing Cleveland Engine Plant 2's Achievement Report and coordinating the site visit that led to the plant being awarded the Shingo Prize for Excellence in Manufacturing. He has served as a lead examiner for over 10 years. As an examiner, he has participated in a number of site visits to a variety of different manufacturing and healthcare organizations. Additionally, as an examiner, Tim has had the opportunity to review numerous books vying for the Shingo Prize for Publications. Tim served for 6 years as the Shingo Institute's representative on the AME / Shingo Institute / SME Lean Certification Oversight and Appeals Committee, serving as Chairman of the committee in 2010. He earned his Master of Business Administration in Management and Labor Relations from Cleveland State University. He and his wife, Lisa, have 5 grown children and 7 grandchildren.

The latest podcast episode features Dr. Jonathan Dort, the Director of Surgical Education for the Inova Health System and Program Director of the Surgical Residency for the Department of Surgery at the Inova Fairfax Medical Campus. “I never understood how surgeons had egos, because it is the most continuously humbling business I can imagine being in…” Dr. Dort left private practice to join an academic program. As program director, he has seen residency education change significantly over the years with increasing regulations and requirements. Residents are changing, too, and learning in different ways. Gone are the days of “go read a textbook.” Residents are learning from online sources, SCORE, podcast for example. He had great advice for those interested in applying for residency: - There is no magic formula for getting into residency - Do the activities you are passionate about - Be yourself on the application. He is looking for the real you. You will be appreciated by the program you are the best fit for, and that is a path that is sustainable -When the blood is welling in the OR, the name on your certificate is not going to bail you out Tips for succeeding as a resident: - “Your attitude more than your aptitude will determine your altitude” - Wake up and decide what kind of day you are going to have - Reminding yourself, “This is hard, I will learn from my mistakes, I am going to make mistakes, I am going to use the support from the people around me, and I am going to support the people around me, and those are the people succeed. It is a team approach” -Burnout is not caused by hard work, it is caused by futility If you are interested in becoming a program director: - You have to love to teach and mentor - The relationships you form with the mentorship last a lifetime - You have to see three steps ahead- considering new technology (like robotics), conscious of the needed rotations - There is gratification from taking a resident from “unconsciously incompetent to consciously incompetent, to consciously competent, then unconsciously competent.”
