    Powerful Patient meets Youth Services

    in Health

    Father Donald E. Mowery is the retired leader of Youth Services globally.  He has had a radio show, Talk it Out with Father Don, on WHBQ radio in Memphis, Tennessee, for the past 45 years.  This month Joyce Graff appeared on his show.  Joyce and Father Don have a great conversation about Powerful Patient and its mission, and also about Youth Services and its mission, highlighting many parallels.  In both cases, they work to empower people to work through the issues they cannot change and tackle constructively the things they can change.


    Learn more about Father Don.  A new book, Spiritual Networking, by Darrell B. Uselton and David Yawn, recounts the history of Youth Services in Memphis and worldwide.

    Advocate vs. Advocate

    in Pets

    In the world of Pit Bull Advocacy, we all want the same thing. The fair and equal treatments of the dogs we know and love as Pit Bull. One thing has been clear in my 12 years as an owner, lover, and advocate, our methods and views are not always the same, and we can, and we do, clash. In fighting, boasting, egos, and more. What can we do as advocates to look past those differences, avoid such clashes and do away with the egos involved, including our own?

    Join Dogfather and Joe on our 1st show of 2015 as we discuss this and more. We welcome your calls with comments and questions. Phone lines open at the top of the show. 347-838-8615

    Why Everyone Should Have a Patient Advocate

    in Health

    Patient Advocacy is an important area of specialization concerned with a patient’s knowledge regarding the use of health plans, insurance, understanding medication that has been prescribed to you as well as your diagnosis and treatment. With the Institute of Medicine reporting that anywhere between 44,000 and 98,000 hospital patients die every year due to medical mistakes, it is increasingly vital that patients have someone to help guide them.


    In this episode of iNurse Radio, our host Jeff Allen chats with Ava Sammarco, LPN, regarding the importance of patient advocacy, how patients can avoid succumbing to the problems in our healthcare system and the questions you should be asking as a patient to ensure you receive above standard medical care.


    Ava Sammarco, LPN


    Ava Sammarco is a Licensed Practical Nurse at Park Creek, a residential care center located in Park Creek, Buffalo.


    With more than 35 years in the field Ava is an expert in geriatric and acute care as well as patient advocacy, one of her favorite topics! She is also the host of a radio show called "Nurses Notes" and television show entitled "Health Focus".

    Being Patient in Your Healing Journey

    in Self Help

    This was and still is one of the hardest parts of the healing journey for me. I am a person who is more a perfectionist and there is a certain expectation I have for myself and others. As I have been getting closer to God, these expectations have changed because I realize we live in a fallen world and we are all dust (Psalm 103:14). If God remembers that I am dust, I need to also remember that I am dust and can do nothing without him. This includes any healing that needs to happen.


    I speak on healing a lot on this show because so many of us are doing everything, but allowing ourselves to heal from past breakups, childhood traumas, past abuse, and more. We need not reject our internal healing otherwise we will never be able to function in the way God would have us to. Actually it will many times cause us to fall into many temptations and sins which will cause even more wounds.


    How can we be patient once we make that serious and wonderful decision to allow God to heal us. It is not an easy journey at all and I hope that someone will be encouraged in their path. This is a very vulnerable time where falling back into old patterns, toxic/sinful relationships, depression, and more is so common. How do we also be patient with ourselves when we do mess up because we will in some ways.


    Galatians 6:9 "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
