    Nutrition Education: Answering the Call

    Nutrition Education: Answering the Call

    In this episode of the GW Integrative Medicine podcast, we talk about a nutrition education collaboration between the Department of Physician Assistant Studies and the Integrative Medicine Programs here at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences. In the studio, we have Susan LeLacheur, DrPH, MPH, PA-C, a professor in the GW PA Program.

    Dr. LeLacheur has more than 35 years of clinical experience in primary care, HIV/AIDS, and infectious disease. She is the section director for the GW PA Program’s Foundations of Medicine Gastroenterology Section, and the driving force behind PA nutrition week. Dr. LeLacheur and Dr. Leigh Frame developed this nutrition curricula.

    As the authors of a JAMA opinion piece recently put it, "Nutrition education in medical school is rudimentary, at best, and limited for the duration of graduate medical education for many specialties." Doctors and PAs are educated the same way and suffer the same educational deficit.

    The goal of the PA nutrition week curriculum is to give PAs in training the knowledge, skills, and confidence that studies say prevent health care professionals from counseling their patients about nutrition.

    What to Stock In Your Pandemic Pantry

    What to Stock In Your Pandemic Pantry

    Many of us are trying to flatten the coronavirus curve by practicing social distancing. We're staying inside, working from home, and figuring out ways to keep ourselves and our families entertained. A lot has changed in the past few weeks but one thing that hasn't is our need to eat.

    Today we’re talking about stocking your pantry during a pandemic with Danielle Capalino, MSPH, RD, and the author of the books, “Healthy Gut, Flat Stomach” and “The Microbiome Diet Plan.”

    An expert on nutrition and the gut microbiome, Danielle is in private practice in New York City and an adjunct faculty in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences. She teaches graduate students in the Integrative Medicine Programs about nutrition.

    Breaking the Cycle of Physician Burnout

    Breaking the Cycle of Physician Burnout

    Burnout is more prevalent among healthcare and health sciences workers, professionals, and trainees than among the general U.S. population. Those working in the healthcare field are more susceptible to depression, anxiety, and job dissatisfaction, which can lead to adverse outcomes for healthcare workers as well as the patients and communities they serve.

    Evidence shows, however, that effective wellness programming and strong institutional leadership committed to a culture of wellness can make a difference. That's why GW launched the GWell Center for Healthcare Professionals, which is led by Kaylan Baban, MD, MPH, the inaugural chief wellness officer for GW Hospital, GW Medical Faculty Associates, and the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences.

    An assistant professor of Medicine at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Dr. Baban is also the director, Lifestyle Medicine Program, at GW Medical Faculty Associates.

    She joined us on the latest episode of the GW Integrative Medicine podcast to talk about the GWell Center, the need nationally for initiatives that support those working in health care in all capacities, and why this is so personal for her.
