I am continuing my audio blog, moving away from my experiences with my journey with my mother to patient and healthcare stories. It is my hope that these stories will be informative and instructive. When you hear them, you may think, is she making this up. No, they are real.
Join us for an eye-opeing conversation about Healthcare Plans. How would you rate your knowledge about your current healthcare plan? Do you really know the difference between a PPO and an HMO? Our guest this evening will enlighten us an broaden our understanding about current trends in healthcare plans. She will also share her knowledge, and insights by answering your questions regarding navigation of claims, disputes, referrals or complaints to achieve a successful "resolution" to your problem.

#TNT 037: In a world filled with frivolous content, no presence of mind and a shorter attention span.

And Multiple Award Winning Filmmaker, JETA AMATA is one of those, who understands the impact of telling the right stories to effect change in society, as he continues to use his Art as an awareness platform, to tell the stories of those who have no voice.

Dr Ron Hirshberg is to animals what healthcare advocates are to patients. He has dedicated his life to finding solutions to the pain and suffering of animals. He has always been innovative in his treatments and care. He discovered low level laser therapy when the arthritis in his hands was becoming painful and needed to find a viable treatment that allowed him to continue his work. He stumbled upon this therapy and was successfully treated. He then thought, could this work with animals? He did the research and started using it in his practice with amazing results. He will be talking about the how and why of laser therapy on animals as well as humans. His work and committment has been recognized by several leading veterinary schools as well as international and national laser therapy associations. It is an honor to have this wonderfully dedicated individual on the show.
Howard Block and I will be discussing how to talk about end of life care with a loved one, patient or friend. It can be difficult to know how to approach the topic and exactly what to say. We will discuss why it shouldn't be a conversation with only your doctor but also your family. Why is it important? It is a topic no one wants to have but it can be so helpful knowing what a loved onewants when death is near. We both have had the experience of working with people who knew what they wanted and others who didn't. We have learned the importance of this conversation and how it helps families. We are talking about people saying exactly how much care they want whether full code or not. We hope to remove some of the fear and uncertainty that people experience. It is our goal for listeners to know it is their choice.
eCareDiary will speak to Karyn Rizzo, author of "Aging in America Navigating Our Healthcare System" and patient advocate, about resources to help caregivers through varied health-related decisions such as choosing the right doctor, advanced directives, to name a few.
When Eric Weinheimer accepted the President and CEO position at Donors Forum, he says, his friend Kate Maehr, President and CEO of the Greater Chicago Food Depository, gave him a simple and clear directive: “Create a movement.”
If ever there was a time for a movement in the nonprofit sector, the time is now. Under Eric’s leadership, Donors Forum is eager to lead this movement, and works with all of its members – foundations, providers, advisors, corporations, and the government sector – and engaging other social purpose organizations to build healthier, safer, and richer communities in Illinois.
