What means the most to me is building community, finding safe spaces for the lonely and the elderly. -Nikki Shults Nikki Shults grew up on a family compound in rural Connecticut. At the center of this compound, in the humble, makeshift home lived her grandmother whom she called “Meme”. This wise, matriarch of the family lived to be 95, surrounded by generations of the people she loved. It was on this compound where Nikki learned some of her first lessons about the elderly, community and companionship. She would go on to pursue a BA in Gerontology and an MBA in Healthcare Management from Quinnipiac University. With only a wish to learn more about the world, she entered the Peace Corps, working in Ethiopia. It was there that she observed “you don't need a lot to make you happy” and that what she had learned on her family compound about caring for the elderly was true in Ethiopia as well. Nikki could see that Ethiopians kept their elderly close, protecting them inside multigenerational family homes until the day they died. These days, you'll find Nikki doing what she loves as the Executive Director of a charity called LBFE or Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly www.lbfeboston.org. She is devoted to intergenerational programming and the organization's mission to build communities and friendships between the old and the young. In this interview, Nikki shares some startling statistics about loneliness, the long-term effects of the pandemic on our oldest populations, and the priceless gifts of wisdom she has learned along the way from the elderly. Says Nikki: they've taught me that the sooner you learn to be your most authentic self, the sooner you stop caring what everyone else thinks, that is when your life begins.” #elderly #companionship #lbfeboston #peacecorps

The Harsh Reality of Forecasting Abuse Using Predictive Analytics

Baffled with David DesRoches

Current statistics paint a bleak picture for American children: about one in four kids will experience some form of abuse or neglect at some point in their lifetimes. But, what if we could predict the likelihood of abuse before it happens? What about at birth?  Social scientists and computer programmers are hoping to do just that.  New predictive risk models that promise to be able to determine the likelihood of abuse or neglect are being deployed in public child protective service agencies around the country. However, poorly implemented algorithms have real-world impacts on real people. When used in child welfare cases, algorithms consider things like interactions with police or the welfare system. However, many of these data are proxies for race or poverty. For example, people are more likely to call police on a Black family and give a white family the benefit of the doubt. That interaction with police then becomes data an algorithm considers when determining risk. Again, the data are biased because it comes from biased people, and sometimes the data are even racist. A computer doesn't know the difference between a racist complaint and a real one. They are both data, and in a computer's eyes, equally as useful.

Taxing e-cigarettes curbs usage among 18-25 year-olds; Yale study finds

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the marketing of three new e-cigarette products in 2021, marking the first authorization of its kind by the FDA. Concurrently, the FDA ordered hundreds of products off the market – such as a vape holder shaped like a Gameboy that kids could potentially hide from parents, and a “sunset sherbet” flavored vape liquid, which retailers continue to sell, according to a new investigation by STAT News. The Federal Trade Commission's first-ever e-cigarette report links “an unprecedented” increase in e-cigarette use among youth with the rise in flavored products. “The data show that this increase coincided with dramatic spikes in the market share of flavored products, higher concentrations of nicotine, and an industry attempt to evade a ban on free sampling,” said Samuel Levine, Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection. Beyond regulation, what role do taxes have in the habits of consumers? A new Yale study found that increasing taxes on e-cigarettes led to a decline in youth and young adults' rate of daily vaping; but it led to an increase in cigarette use. The tobacco taxation in Connecticut is $4.35 cents per pack of cigarettes. The state also taxes e-cigarettes at $0.40 per milliliter. This hour on Where We Live, we hear from the co-author of the Yale study on e-cigarette taxation and the policy implications, and from a youth and adolescent psychiatrist on the best ways to help patients cease smoking. We also look into social pressures, trends, and the influence of marketing and advertising in driving youth and young adults toward e-cigarettes.

Paul Bristow, 69, prostate cancer, Norton, with his wife, Kathy ● Paul has metastatic prostate cancer, which means his cancer has spread. He wasdiagnosed in August 2019. Throughout his cancer journey Paul has felt he's in greathands with his Dana-Farber care team.● The disease causes pain which has been challenging at times, especially since Paulloves to be active, even as a rider on the PMC.● This past year, his cancer was still progressing, despite previous treatments. That'swhen he learned there was a new treatment available that was just approved by theF-D-A, thanks to a clinical trial.● It's a radio-pharmaceutical, which means it is a nuclear medicine. It's a drug that isinjected and targets the radiation precisely to the tumor.● Paul was the first patient at Dana-Farber to undergo this cutting-edge treatment,going to the Chestnut Hill location to receive it.● Paul and his wife say when they learned about this new treatment option, they felthope and were thankful that Dana-Farber can offer it and appreciative of the scienceand research that made this treatment possible.● In his spare time, in addition to staying active, he loves to travel. Prostate cancer facts● Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men (after skin cancer).● The American Cancer Society's estimates for prostate cancer in the United States for2022 are about 268,490 new cases of prostate cancer.● About 1 man in 8 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.● Prostate cancer begins when cells in the prostate gland start to grow out of control.The prostate is a gland found only in males.● Almost all prostate cancers are adenocarcinomas. These cancers develop from thegland cells (the cells that make the prostate fluid that is added to the semen).● Most prostate cancers are found early, through screening. Early prostate cancerusually causes no symptoms. Symptoms can include problems urinating, blood inurine or semen, pain in the hips, back, or chest, and weakness or numbness in thelegs or feed.● New research on gene changes linked to prostate cancer is helping scientists betterunderstand how prostate cancer develops. This could make it possible to designmedicines to target those changes. Sarah Sallan, RN, Nurse Practitioner, Jimmy Fund Clinic, Dana-Farber● She earned her Master's in Science at the University of Pennsylvania and started as aSolid Tumor Nurse Practitioner in the Jimmy Fund Clinic in December of 2019.● She primarily sees patients with osteosarcoma and germ cell tumors, but also othersolid tumor diseases.
