    Dr. Julia Hallisy obtained her BS in Biological Science from the University of San Francisco in 1984 and a second Bachelor’s degree from the University of California in Dental Sciences.

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.
      
    Dr. Hallisy began to research the topic of patient safety in 1998. She has lobbied for health care reform in Washington, DC with Consumer’s Union.

    The Three Pillars of Sanofi's Patient-Centric Strategy

    in Business

    Input, Solutions, Culture


    Pharmaguy interviews Anne C. Beal, MD, MPH, Chief Patient Officer, Sanofi, and Melva T. Covington, MPH, MBA., PhD, Project Leader, Research and Develooment, Sanofi. They talk about their roles in bringing the patient perspective into Sanofi's work to advance Sanofi's ability to deliver health care solutions that matter most to patients and those who care for them.


    Questions/Topics of Discussion



    How do you define "Patient-Centricity?"
    Tell us more about the three pillars of Sanofi's Patient-Centric Strategy. How do you get patients' input? Do you have any patient advocates on your team who are not physicians but who have worked extensively with patients?
    Are we talking only about patient-centricity in the context of research & development? What about corporate and marketing communications?
    What's the most difficult hurdle for pharma to overcome to be truly patient-centric?
    Why did Sanofi create the role of "Chief Patient Officer?" How is it different from "Chief Medical Officer?" What do you do as Sanofi's Chief Patient Officer? Can you relate a case study which demonstrates how you implemented your strategy?
    What other pharmaceutical companies have Chief Patient Officers? Do they all have similar roles? Will all pharma companies follow?

    Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this edition of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we revisit the purpose of the Election Boycott Advocates. Some are suggesting that even the election of Syriza cannot save Greece and there can be no electoral exit from the crisis (http://crimethinc.com/texts/r/syriza/).  We at the Election Boycott Advocates believe that there can be no electoral exit from our current and ongoing crises, capitalism. Participation in our plutocratic election system is absolutely meaningless, as the capitalist class use our consent to make us weaker and weaker, as they get stronger and stronger.  It is critical that working class Americans realize that they have no stake in our election system and join us in spreading non-compliance.  The first step in any revolution is the elevation of consciousness, then non-compliance. This 2 hour program will be dedicated to expressing the need for the Election Boycott Advocates.

    Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    The Election Boycott Advocates welcome a very special guest to the show.  Alya Rea from the Greanville Post joins the show to discuss the relationship between the United States, Russia and Ukraine. We'll also ask Alya to give her thoughts on the recent developments in Greece.


    The Following is Rea's bio from the Greanville Post:


    Alevtina Rea is a researcher, analyst and writer and a strong supporter of social justice and human rights. For 7 years (2005 – 2012), she worked as an assistant editor with CounterPunch, a leading left political journal in the Anglophone world that exemplifies, along with The Greanville Post and a small cluster of sites, what an oppositional press should be like. She believes that “the role of the media is to educate, inform and shed light where there is none” in order to counter state-sponsored propaganda. Given the appalling criminality and atrocities committed by Western imperialism around the world, she believes that Russia—by opposing such power, and by her growing cooperation with Latin American and Asian countries— offers a new hope to humanity. Ms. Rea is also a contributing author to CounterPunch, Cyrano’s Journal Today, Uncommon Thought Journal,  and the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies. She can be reached at rea.alya@gmail.com.

    Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    Join the Election Boycott Advocates on Carson's Corner as they discuss the issues that few podcasts will cover, especially in the corporate media. Patrice Greenville, founder of the Greanville Post, recently wrote an article for the Greanville Post titled, "Hatchet Job on Putin only demonstrates the Conformist Spirit Permeating US Journalism." The article is critical of Frontline's treatment of Vladmir Putin. Why is it that the American media is so agaisnt Putin? Isn't the American media supposed to give you two sides to a conflict? The American media treatment of the conflict in the Ukraine is only the latest example of how the media respresents elite interests. In the lead up to every military conflict that involves the United States, the corporate media merely extends the will of the ruling class and acts as a cheerleader as the U.S. ruling class conquers another country. As we have seen in the Ukraine, the ruling class  will use neo nazi fascists to protect U.S. and international capital.


    Also, it seems that capitalism has in store more "free trade" deals that will futher immobilize the American worker and  create a controllable pool of cheap labor. The American worker will continue to be forced to compete with sweatshop workers in  a race to the bottom as capitalism moves backwards to ensure its survival.

    Carson's Corner with The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this March 22nd, 2015, edition of Carson's Corner, the Election Boycott Advocates will begin the show by discussing the argument for early voting. Recently President Obama made the argument that mandatory voting is "potentially transformative." President Obama and his rulers want to further solidify their control over us by enshrining the meaningless act of voting. As we have discussed, voting only validates plutocratic control; and the best way to delegitimize our rulers is to not participate in their game. We'll discuss this, plus play some clips and discuss the rest of the news you won't hear in the corporate media.
