  • Travel insurance for people with medical issues

    in Health

    Joyce and Robin speak with Dr. Patty Calvert, an agent with Travel Experts of Memphis, Tennessee, about travel insurance.


    Robin raised the question because in her dealings with people who have kidney cancer, there were too many stories of illness during travel and being let down by the travel insurance they thought they had had for emergencies.


    Patty designs adventure travel for her clients, and has experience in making sure that in case of emergencies abroad, there will be an appropriate backup system in place.

    Encore with Dr. Carl Calleman, "The Global Mind & the Rise of Civilization"

    in Self Help

    If you were interested in the predicted end of the Mayan calendar in 2012, you may have come to the conclusion that this calendar lacked relevance for understanding human history and our own time. 


    Hold that thought, and listen to co-hosts Beth Donnelly and Dagny Grant of I AM U Radio as they interview Dr. Carl Calleman.   It may give you a new perspective. 


    Dr. Calleman has published four books on the topic, and has said:  "...the Mayan calendar is about the evolution of consciousness--changing people on the inside-- rather than catastrophes or astronomical events." 


    Tune in to this enlightening live interview.  You are welcome to call in with your comments or questions.

    5 Things I've Learned About Being a Widow

    in Women

    In this episode of DivaTalkRadio, I will share the 5 things I've learned about being a widow. On March 19 of this year (2015), my darling and most loving husband died in my arms after battling liver cancer. While I thought I was prepared, the realization of his death put me in a total tailspin. From personally witnessing what the body goes through as it is dying, the shutting down of organs, the color changes of the skin, the smell...smell of death and dying; to feeling alone, afraid, panicking, and losing hope of growing old together. The experience was hard and continues to be hard today. 

    Through my faith and close friends, I'm slowly walking in GRACE and learning about myself everyday. I'm learning that there are days that I feel on top of the world, then other days that I'm paralyzed and not wanting to get out of bed. However, through it all, I am a survivor.

    From this episode, my desire is that you will experience HOPE in that no matter what obstacles you are facing that you, too, will become an OVERCOMER!

    Be sure to join me! 

    xoxo

    in Christianity

  • Can Online Patient Interaction be HIPAA Compliant?

    in Health

    As more and more patients are turning to the Internet to conduct a consultation for aesthetic surgery, the need for total patient privacy and HIPAA compliancy has never been greater. This interview with San Francisco board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Scott Mosser, explains the importance of HIPAA compliancy and what steps an aesthetic practitioner can take to be compliant. Dr. Mosser utilizes AestheticLink, an integrated software solution that is HIPAA compliant and endorsed by leading malpractice insurance companies. With a busy Bay Area practice, Dr. Mosser uses AestheticLink for a multitude of purposes including virtual consulting, patient tracking, inventory control and marketing. His philosophy of improvement through plastic surgery happens through establishing harmonty, not by manipulating a patient's fundamental appearance. Enhancing people’s lives and witnessing positive changes in self confidence are key reasons Dr. Mosser chose plastic surgery as his profession, and are the reasons that he loves performing plastic surgery everyday. Patient privacy is important to Dr. Mosser. Learn more at www.drmosser.com.
