Since that time, she has been a full-time practicing San Francisco dentist.
Her second child, Katherine Eileen, was diagnosed at five months of age with bilateral retinoblastoma. Dealing with her daughter’s life-threatening diagnosis, the many recurrences of cancer, and the subsequent treatments for the malignant and aggressive tumors marked the beginning an almost 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The unique combination of her scientific training, her work as a healthcare provider, and guiding a child through a chronic illness has afforded her invaluable insight as an advocate for patients.

Mike and Joyce chat about the adventure of going outside your comfort zone for medical care.
Joyce has been hosting a family from a village on the west coast of Ecuador who are in Boston to get life-saving heart surgery for their son. Not only have they traveled a great distance, but Boston has very different weather than the tropical weather of Ecuador, the food is entirely different, and they don't speak any English.
They also chat about some of the highlights of the shows of 2014, and foreshadow next week's Christmas week show about considering clinical trials, and the resources that are available to assist you in finding and joining clinical trials that might be helpful in your situation.
Many thanks for listening in 2014, we hope you enjoy next week's show, and that you will be with us in 2015, happy and in good health.
Be well, and be a Powerful Patient.

Early in EMS education we are presented with the idea that "time" is a factor in much of what we do. Golden Hours, Platinum Ten Minutes, Time is Muscle etc.
While some of these can help us with our treatment and transport decisions, have you ever wondered or questioned if they are getting in the way of patient care?
As EMS providers we bring much of the Emergency Department to the patient. Even more so we are expected to provide certain levels of care to our patients prior to delivery to these ED's.
I am sure that you have been questioned or made to feel like less of a provider when you don't provide certain aspects of care. Even when it was due to trying to follow dictated "time" constraints that are expected and may have been in the patients better interest to transport rather than perform a skill prior to arrival at the ED.
So what do you think? Are these time markers valuable to us as providers or helpful?
Do we end up focusing too much on them and not on what is best for the patient?
