Herd Immunity as a Coronavirus Pandemic Strategy
Play • 53 min

Would letting coronavirus infect the broad US and global population be a safe and effective means of ending the COVID-19 pandemic? Jay Bhattacharya, MD, PhD, of Stanford University's Center for Primary Care and Outcomes Research is a signatory of the "Great Barrington Declaration," which proposes to "allow those at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk." Marc Lipsitch, PhD, of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, a signatory of the "John Snow Memorandum," which refutes the argument, responds.

Adult Eating Disorders
Guest: Leslie A. Sim, Ph.D., L.P. (@DrLeslieSim) Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD) A variety of eating disorders can occur in adults and they are associated with multiple potential health complications, including an increased risk of death. Some studies report that up to 20% of those with Anorexia Nervosa will die as a result of the condition. Would you recognize an eating disorder in the patients you see? What clues should you look for? In this week’s Mayo Clinic Talks, we’ll speak with Dr. Leslie Sim, a psychologist at the Mayo Clinic. We’ll discuss who is most likely to develop an eating disorder, important “red flag” symptoms, questions you should ask patients to help confirm a diagnosis, and how we should approach a patient we suspect has an eating disorder. Topics discussed: * Definition of an eating disorder * Important “red flag” symptoms that may indicate an eating disorder * Health complications that can occur as a result of an eating disorder * Who is most likely to have an eating disorder * The genetic component to eating disorders * Clues from their childhood that suggest patients may have an eating disorder as an adult * Events which can trigger an eating disorder * When we should suspect an eating disorder * How we should approach a patient we suspect has an eating disorder * Management of eating disorders * Effectiveness of treatment Connect with the Mayo Clinic’s School of Continuous Professional Development online at https://ce.mayo.edu/ or on Twitter @MayoMedEd.

Psilocybin assisted therapy, mental health, and how we doubled the size of our company
It’s been a very long time since I have jumped on the Medgeeks podcast. But, every year I share and reflect everything I have learned with the community...and this year is no different! This episode is heavily focused on mental health and the pandemic. Much of what I discuss today is based off my personal experience, which is what shaped the growth of our company. Today, I’ll be discussing: * The Pandemic * My experience with psilocybin * Why I started therapy and how it’s helped shape Medgeeks * How our company doubled in size and brought on many full time employees in a time when many businesses were laying people off. * The #1 mistake PAs and NPs make after graduation * The secret to being the absolute best clinician you can be * 4 main takeaways I learned in 2020 that changed my life It’s my hopes that I can do my small part to help squash the stigma behind mental health. After all, my fiance is a marriage and family therapist :). At the end of the episode, I ask to see if anyone is interested in discussing business and/or personal growth. If that’s you, just click the link below to sign up. If there’s enough interest, I'll hold a free virtual session, where we can work together to help you get ahead. I have nothing to sell. This is just my way of giving back: https://medgeeks.co/business-talk Talk soon! - Andrew p.s. The future podcast episodes will not be like this. We’ll continue to focus on evidence based medicine to help you master medicine. But, it’s my podcast and I wanted to share haha. Happy New Year!
