    COS 114 Eliminating Problems Is Not The Answer

    COS 114 Eliminating Problems Is Not The Answer

    “Eliminating problems is not the answer to mental health and wellness challenges.” If you spend 100% of your time weeding a garden, and 0% of your time planting it, ultimately you will have a frustrating and barren garden. This is the basic premise that Josh Vaisman brings to the podcast as he and Dr. Andy Roark discuss how we cannot remove challenges until we are happy, and what other approaches we should consider.

    ABOUT OUR GUEST:
    Mark Goldstein, DVM, has spent over 40 years caring, advocating, and fighting for the welfare
    of animals. The institutions he worked at are all recognized leaders in their respective fields and the variety of animals he worked with and the varied responsibilities he has had are unique. He was a senior staff clinician in the medicine department at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston. After being hired to head the Boston Zoos, he led a turnaround for the failing inner city Franklin Park Zoo. “Dr. Mark” then moved west with his wife Kristine and their two daughters when he was appointed to lead the Los Angeles Zoo. During his tenure at the Los Angeles Zoo he was involved with one of the most successful release programs, the reintroduction of the California Condor back into the wild. He vividly remembers watching the first bird being re-released into the Los Padres National Forest soar free one misty beautiful morning. He followed his heart to shine a light on the importance of the human-animal bond and took the helm at the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA where he oversaw the design, development, and completion of the “San Diego Campus for Animal Care.” Many aspects of the campus, its programs and its unique partnership with the municipal animal care department have been copied numerous times both nationally and internationally. He has a BS in Animal Science and a DVM degree from Cornell University. Health Communications Inc. (HCI) recently published his book “Lions and Tigers and Hamsters” What large and small animals taught me about life, love and humanity.

    Dr. Mark enjoys giving presentations that are both educational and entertaining. His talks not
    only draw upon stories from his book “Lions and Tigers and Hamsters” but also from his 40
    years of experience caring for animals and their welfare along with supporting the people who
    care for them. He has vast experience talking to a variety of groups from book clubs, service
    organizations, and at professional conferences as the keynote speaker. He was also the UCSD
    OSHER visiting author during the 2020 spring semester. He imparts to his audience the
    importance of the human-animal bond and how it helps create the fabric of a healthy
    community. He calls upon his experiences to share with colleagues how he feels honored to
    have been able to serve in what he sees as a sacred profession, the practice of veterinary
    medicine. He enjoys making his presentations interactive and encourages Q/A when the
    program allows.

    ABOUT OUR GUEST:
    Two weeks before graduating from OVC in 1982, Margie Scherk packed all of her worldly belongings into her rusty, yellow Honda Civic named Jaundice and drove west to take her last two weeks of school at WCVM. Moving to a place she could see the mountains and ocean every day, she opened Cats Only Veterinary Clinic in 1982, at that time the second feline specific clinic in Canada. The first time they became available to sit, she sat and passed ABVP Feline boards in 1995.

    Since 2008 she has been teaching, writing and editing exclusively. This takes her around the world where, like a locum, she gets to see how other people practice, only in this case, under some very different circumstances and in different cultures. She is the North American editor of the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery, serves on a whole bunch of committees on national, international and feline projects. As a break, she loves to cook.

Great podcast for veterinarians

I’m loving this new podcast from Dr Andy Roark. The How Do You Treat That episodes fit perfectly into my commute, so I start my day with fresh or refreshed knowledge ready to apply to my patients.
Keep up the good work!
