    [BEST OF OOP] Not Your Father's Pharma Conference

    [BEST OF OOP] Not Your Father's Pharma Conference

    Original Air Date 7/13/2021 — On the show today, it's a spotlight on NAMAPA (National Association of Medication Access & Patient Advocacy) with Co-Founders Elizabeth Johnson LPN and Melissa Paige, CPhT. Liz started her career in immunology and moved into the world of "medication access," which is healthcare between the patient and the doctor, where issues of access, pricing, prescriptions, and navigating the complexities of the system are all managed on behalf of the patient. As a certified Pharmacy Tech, Melissa lives in a world of reimbursement and access challenges in her previous roles, which is also code for "how medicine gets to the patient." NAMAPA is the presenting sponsor of the inaugural Healthcare Advocate Summit for Advocates by Advocates held on September 8-10 in Galveston Island, Texas. This conference is slated to be the premier event for anyone involved in patient access, navigation, and reimbursement. Learn more at https://www.healthcareadvocatesummit.com.

    Introducing Claire O'Bryan and the DabbleCo Podcast!

    Introducing Claire O'Bryan and the DabbleCo Podcast!

    On the show today, I welcome Claire O'Bryan, certified nurse practitioner, rabble-rouser, wellness warrior, host of the DabbleCo Podcast, and Co-Founder of The Skin Clique. The DabbleCo Podcast is the latest addition to the OffScrip Health Podcast Network, and, I promise you, it's well worth your time to subscribe to this show wherever you already listen to your podcasts. Claire joined me in studio for a fabulous discussion about the trials, tribulations, and modern-day challenges facing nurses and NPs against the backdrop of burnout and mental health. We also dive into the ridiculous jargon and artificial language woven into consumer consciousness that tricks us into thinking everyday foods and health/beauty products are good for us—words like "All natural," "Organic," "Homemade," and so on. Twas a great chat with an incredibly talented and inspiring human. Enjoy the show.

You need this in your life!

This podcast absolutely belongs on your 'top shelf' of podcasts! What I appreciate most is the ‘real’ factor here…real conversations, real personalities, and so many stories that inform and inspire by way of an invigorating exploration into the healthcare world, and delightfully far beyond. Listening to Matthew and his guests is like sitting down to a beer with new friends, and coming away with a better mind and spirit because of it!

I love this podcast!

Matthew Zachary is one of the best hosts out there, along with being uplifting and hilarious. Every guest has something powerful to share and MZ knows exactly how to bring their best to light.

Dynamic & heart felt

Love the way MZ brings out the best of those he interviews. The episode on nutrition and cancer is powerful, informative and has the trademark humor.
