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.
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
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.

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.

Karen Mercereau is a nationally recognized visionary leader in healthcare, known for her ability to transcend challenges, and create opportunity from complexity. This was the quality behind her founding of RN Patient Advocates in 2002, for which she received a Purpose Prize Fellowship. A clinical RN for 45 years in diverse intensive care as well as community health settings, Karen was also integral in developing the first hospice in Tucson, AZ. Recognizing the dearth of public health programs available in the AIDS community in the late 1980’s, she chaired a countywide consortium to develop AIDs relief programs in Tampa Bay.

Currently, Karen heads the RN Patient Advocate Learning Intensive in association with the University of Arizona College of Nursing. This immersion learning program for qualified clinical RNs prepares them for the development of their own practices as independent RN Patient Advocates (iRNPAs).

Today's topic is: Patient Autonomy or Something More Sinister?
The FDA has just approved a genetic test for consumers to use at home without a Doctor’s permission. Patients can now freely purchase this genetic test and get the results. Is this an advance in patient autonomy? Or is there something more sinister? Dr Daniels reviews the accuracy of the test, the purpose of the test and how you can sidestep this plan to ensnare you in the Standard of Care. Tune in. Think Happens.
What’s Hot, What’s Not. Tune as Dr Daniels gives her best picks as to the up coming trends in Healing, self - care, health care and healing. You heard it first here. Think Happens..

Mackey is uniquely qualified through her background, education, and experience to make a human rights demand on behalf of sex abuse victims.
