Mike and Joyce speak with Dr. Julia Hallisy about The Empowered Patient Coalition: providing healthcare improvement and patient safety tools directly to consumers.
About Dr. Hallisy:
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. In 1988, Dr. Hallisy received her Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of California at San Francisco School of Dentistry. 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.
Dr. Hallisy is committed to and passionate about the subjects of patient safety, health care reform and medical error reduction. She is the founder and president of The Empowered Patient Coalition.
Dr. Hallisy was born and raised in San Francisco, where she lives with her husband, John Hallisy, and their two sons, Daniel and Kevin. The Hallisy’s ten-year old daughter, Kate, lost her life-long battle with cancer in February 2000.
The Election Boycott Advocates welcome a very special guest to the show. Deputy Editor at the Greanville Post, Alya Rea, joins the show to discuss the relationship between the United States, Russia and Ukraine.
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 email@example.com.

The Election Boycott Advocates welcome one of their own to the show, Christopher Alan Driscoll. Driscoll, who was Ralph Nader's media director for his three presidential campaigns, has a firm grasp on the origins of socialism that he will discuss. EBA members Bob Carson and Thomas Baldwin want to explore how to arrive at socialism here in the U.S. with Christopher. We want to know how we create a more equitable and sustainable society that is owned by the workers.
Plus, in hour two, we'll delve into all things Ferguson.
This week on Carson's Corner, 11-16-14, the Election Boycott Advocates welcome Stewart Acuff to the show. Stewart returns to Carson's Corner to discuss the current state of affairs of the nation, plus he'll give his take on the Election Boycott Advocates. This is a discussion you don't want to miss. Tune into Carson's Corner at 9pm tomorrow night.
Here is more information about Stewart from his website: Stewart Acuff is the Organizing Director of the National Union of Hospital and Health Care Employees 1199 in Philadelphia.

Dr. Nancy Finn has written a sequel to her book, ePatients Live Longer. Joyce and Mike speak with her about the new edition, and what she has learned since the writing of her earlier book. How does it help a patient to do some research, get engaged, and advocate for him or herself?

Almost another year in the books, and the oppression of the American worker continues to get worse. From phony billionaire-owned elections, a us-backed fascist coup in Ukraine, to an out-of-control militarized police force that seeks to perserve the privilege of the ruling class, the workers in America have been forced to engage in non-compliance. Non-compliance already exists in our society in the form of the non-voter. However, we are starting to see the beginnings of a mass response from the oppressed.
Join the Election Boycott Advocates as they recap some of the year's events, as well what we in the working class have to look forward in 2015.
It's Sunday, and it's time for the Election Boycott Advocates to appear on Carson's Corner. Last week after a great discussion on the origins of socialism and social democracies, the Election Boycott Advocates welcome Harry Cason, member/supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement to the show. We will discuss our vision for the future of America and the current issues that face working class Americans- or better yet, the very system that oppresses all of us. How do we overturn that system? What do we put in its place? We will attempt to answer all these questions and more.
