In this episode we talk about how Joe, together with his team, bakes 12 million brownies a year, and you've probably eaten one in your Ben & Jerry's. But the real product of Greyston is the people, many of whom are traditionally excluded from the workforce and have been given the opportunity to thrive through Greyton's paradigm-shifting opening hiring concept. We talk about the new leadership playbook, how product needs to connect with broader society, and how to discover your gift to make the impact you are called to make.

Vaughn Millard Williams III has an extensive career in the area of Community Programming with an emphasis on Human Resource Management, Supplier Diversity, Procurement, Operations and Social Services. Having worked in the area of Social Services and Supplier Diversity for the last 20 years, Vaughn is able to attest to the pitfalls of any industry, yet he knows that the end result is what you make of it. Receiving all formal education in the Los Angeles inner-city schools, Vaughn is a testament as to the success of perseverance and goal setting. Each day he is compelled to challenge peers to rise to the next level of sucess in their perspective industries. His background over the last decade has entailed managing programs designed to service at-risk youth, single mothers obtaining federal subsidy, fathers exiting the penal system, and older adults returning to the workforce. The common denominator in every group that he has serviced has been diversity and financial constraints associated with the lack of job training. Over the years he's trained, empowered and employed over 700 South Los Angeles Constituents in the areas of clerical, accounting, janitorial, domestic engineering, restaurant management, industrial services and management.

I'm Ready for Work, Are You? With Fiona McIntosh, Jessie Ward and Genna WardAs young people with disability progress through the secondary school years, they and their family members often wonder: what they will do after school? what will they be able to do? Families tell us they inevitably arrive at a narrow set of ‘post-school options'. These vary depending on the young person's assessed readiness for work. In this session, Fiona introduces participants to the concept of customised employment. It's a great approach for people with disability who are looking for meaningful work. It helps everyone involved to imagine a broader range of employment possibilities. You may find that your understanding of “work readiness” will shift dramatically! Participants will get an insight into creating customised employment opportunities. You'll learn that the most successful approaches always align with the interests of the young person, and benefit the employer. These insights will be revealed through interactive exercises and actionable information. IntroductionThis session was introduced by Max Grinsell-Jones. Hi, my name is Max.

To assess patients on a one-to-one basis for social determinants of health (SDOH) is an important, yet often high touch process conducted by health center staff. So what might a lower touch approach to these vital screenings look like? Northeast Valley Health Corporation (NEVHC) sought to explore innovative solutions in order to assess the specific needs of their over 80,000 patients throughout Los Angeles County. Today we hear from Debra Rosen and Alejandra Mata at NEVHC about their exciting and ongoing journey in digitizing the patient screening process. They share how integrating different tools on a familiar platform can better identify specific patient population needs and allow them to offer pertinent community resources more widely - while also impacting the provider's quality of service at the point of care.Here's where you can learn more about the people, places, and ideas in this episode: Debra Rosen, RN, MPH, Director of Quality, Health Equity, and Innovation; and Alejandra Mata, Associate Director of Health Equity - Northeast Valley Health Corporation (NEVHC)One Degree, web and mobile platform that makes it easy for low-income families to find, manage, and review nonprofit and government servicesTechnology Hub, a CCI program that helps organizations vet, pilot, evaluate, and spread innovative digital health solutions targeting Medicaid markets and historically underinvested communities. *Exciting announcement!

Think Big, Go Micro! With Chloe Reid and Jodie ReidMost people experience a micro-business when they are young. They might look after a friend's pet or mow a neighbour's lawn and receive some money or other item of value in return. Such micro-businesses teach young people valuable lessons about work, money, saving, and contribution. Unfortunately, young people with disability often miss out on enjoying such experiences of work. When COVID-19 changed Chloe's plans for employment, Chloe and her family decided to think big and try a microenterprise. In this presentation, Chloe and her mother, Jodie will outline how they identified Chloe's skills and interests utilised their personal networks and developed a successful microenterprise. IntroductionThis session was introduced by Gus Reichelt Hi, my name is Gus. I am here to introduce Chloe and Jodie Reid. Chloe is 21 years old. She lives in Canberra. Chloe really likes fashion and design. She is great at sewing. Chloe uses this interest and skill in her own micro business. Jodie Reid is Chloe's mum. She thinks inclusion is very important. She believes that everyone has a talent that can lead to meaningful roles. Today we will hear how Chloe started her own business by following her interest and talent in fashion. I hope you enjoy listening to Chloe's story. Meet Chloe ReidChloe Reid is a 21-year-old Canberra local with a strong interest in fashion and design. With her mum Jodie's support, she established a small business called Mrs Clompys Closet. A conversation with one of Jodie's work colleagues led to an order of scrunchies for a local girls' soccer team. Suddenly, Chloe found herself with an exciting niche! Chloe has recently launched her virtual shop on Etsy. She now sells hair scrunchies and beautiful lavender pillows to customers across Australia. Mrs Clompys Closet can be found on Etsy, Instagram and Facebook. Meet Jodie ReidJodie Reid is a passionate and enthusiastic parent who loves talking about inclusion with anyone who wants to listen (and occasionally with some who don't!). She believes that everybody has “their thing”- a talent, a passion, a skill – of value to contribute to those around them. In her professional life, Jodie has worked in a range of government policy and program areas. She enjoys working collaboratively and looking for simple, creative solutions to complex problems. Just because no one has done it that way before doesn't mean it can't be done. Jodie and her husband have two children, 15 and 21. Their daughter attended her local schools, from preschool to secondary college, and completed Year 12 in 2018. With Jodie's help, she then followed her interest in fashion and sewing and runs a successful small enterprise in Canberra.

For this episode, we're going to take a break from Covid. We're going to talk about Monkeypox. While it may be only recently that people have heard of this virus, Monkeypox was actually first detected in 1958 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Throughout the decades, cases have been most commonly present in Central and Western Africa. Recently, however, it has spread throughout 94 different countries with forty thousand cases reported globally. On August 4th, the U.S. declared Monkeypox to be a public health emergency, with 14,000 reported cases. As of September 9th, there have only been three known cases here in Alaska. To learn more about this virus, ATMI producer Kendrick Whiteman spoke with Dr. Joe McLaughlin. He is the chief of the Alaska section of epidemiology and the state epidemiologist. He breaks down everything to know about Monkeypox, how it compares to Covid-19, and much more. They spoke on August 19th, 2022, back when there were only two reported cases in the state.

CAPT Kevin O'Neil, JAGC, U.S. Navy (Retired), was serving as a military judge, a job which he absolutely loved, when he was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of cancer and began a long and courageous battle for his health. Medically retired in 2015 and finally turning a corner in his health battle, Kevin realized he was bored in retirement and found a way to return to the bench as an administrative law judge for the State of California's Department of Social Services. Like many JAGs in retirement, although he had experience as a judge, Kevin had to learn a completely new area of the law. This week's podcast is an opportunity to learn about working at the state level and an opportunity to hear about Kevin's remarkable journey. Kevin's LinkedIn profile is at https://www.linkedin.com/in/kevin-o-neil-181772aa/. Our conversation was recorded in August 2022.
A 36-year-old Virginia man was sentenced to ten years in prison for abusing his two 12-year-old sons. During the period between Jan. 1, 2021, and April 30, 2021, Adam Hodge abused two 12-year-old girls. Hodge testified on Monday that he was just disciplining them by holding pillows to their faces. As well as cutting one of the victims with steak knives, Hodge tied another victim to a wooden cross to beat him. In addition, Hodge reportedly held one boy's head underwater in a river almost to the point of drowning, according to the Southwest Times. Upon receiving the abuse allegations, the Pulaski County Department of Social Services launched an investigation. The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office found physical evidence such as scars. Hodge pleaded guilty to eight counts of child abuse in April, and on April 30, 2021, he was booked into the New River Valley Regional Jail. The Roanoke Times reports that Chief Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney Dina Branco called the abuse "torture." During testimony, Hodge's mother said she and her husband were given full custody of the twin victims when they were 11 months old, but Hodge still sought partial custody in the fall of 2020. A total of 40 years was sentenced to Hodge for each of the eight charges, but the term will be suspended after 10 years of service.

August 19, 2022: What was it like in the early stages of the pandemic through the eyes of a Secretary of Family and Social Services? https://www.linkedin.com/in/jennifer-sullivan-md-mph-3a081760/ (Jen Sullivan) who is now the Senior Vice President Strategic Operations at https://atriumhealth.org/ (Atrium Health) shares her thrilling and beautifully put story about handling the crisis, the vaccine rollout and other logistics at the state level through her fascinating lens. During the episode we ponder: What is the current status of the data infrastructure between states and health systems? How can we build behavioral health in an integrated way? How do we build novel delivery systems of care that go to people rather than our historic way where people have to come to us? What kind of magic happens when you combine an innovation hub and medical school all in one space? How can we best train our next generation of physicians? Are we seeing more virtual technology being used? How is that augmenting the training experience? Key Points: When people looking at a health system, they're really looking for a partner in health One of my favorite evolutions of public health is precision public health How do you hire the right people and create an environment in which they can practice empathy? https://atriumhealth.org/ (Atrium Health) Sign up for our webinar: https://thisweekhealth.com/briefing_campaigns/challenges-and-solutions-to-unmanaged-devices-in-healthcare/ (Challenges and Solutions to Unmanaged Devices in Healthcare) - Thursday September 8, 2022: 1pm ET / 10am PT

Healthcare's most vulnerable patients meet a fragmented system when they seek to simultaneously address chronic comorbidities, behavioral health challenges, and social needs (i.e., navigating access to food, transportation, and housing). In response, ConcertoCare employs a multidisciplinary team and offers an integrated approach to clinical care, behavioral health, and social services. The organization takes its name from a musical composition involving a soloist and an orchestra. With ConcertoCare, the patient (soloist) and interdisciplinary team (orchestra) work in tandem to meet the patient's needs beyond clinical care. Chairman and CEO Julian Harris, MD, MBA, talks with Breaking Health host Steve Krupa about the company's clinical model, delivering exceptional care backed by technology and data, developing a brick-and-mortar health center, and its role in helping senior patients receive in-home care for as long as possible.

For many people who have had Covid, it isn't always over once you've recovered from the virus. According to a study from the Penn State College of Medicine, more than half of the 236 million people worldwide who have been diagnosed with Covid-19 will experience what is commonly known as Long Covid. In this episode we hear from Dr. Jeff Demain, an allergist and immunologist with the Allergy Asthma Immunology Center of Alaska. ATMI senior producer Daisy Carter talked with Dr. Demain about Long Covid, its various lingering symptoms a person can have, how it should be treated, and the role vaccines play.

TRIGGER: This episode discusses child abuse and murder. There is a strong need for these kids to have a “forever home”. It takes a special type of person to be adoptive and foster parents. They are “godsends”. The good ones, that is. Our case today is not obviously about the good ones, but is about people who did not love, protect, or provide a safe place for a child that so needed it. It is also a case about a department that is overwhelmed, negligent and failed to do their job in making sure that this child was placed in a safe and loving environment. This case does involve the death of a child.

As we see an increasing number of culturally diverse patients in our practices, there is no doubt of the importance of cultural competency in medicine. Specific circumstances and miscommunications have been well documented. But how can we develop an eye to see where a patient’s values and worldview may differ from our own? We will review an approach to cultural competency highlighted by medical missions case studies.
