    This Little Diagnostic Went To Market...

    This Little Diagnostic Went To Market...

    On the show today, I'm thrilled to welcome – LIVE IN STUDIO — Liz Cormier-May, CEO of Mammogen, and Marty Keiser, CEO at IV Bioholdings. It's hard to blend funny, entertaining wit with healthcare jargon like diagnostics, market access, go-to-market strategy, etc. And yet, somehow, we did it. The process is gnarly and ridiculous but, now more than ever, it's actually possible to NOT GET CANCER because of much more accessible and affordable diagnostics. Some of them are free; some are even over the counter. But getting into the hands of doctors or retail consumers is a whole other story, let alone issues with the FDA and safety. Well, we cut through all that crap and get to the brass taxes of how the only real thing moving the needle are consumers who vote with their wallets.

    How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall?

    Today, LIVE here at OffScrip Media studios, I welcome my incomparably talented friend Rebecca Cherry. She and I met almost 20 years ago. We hit it off as members of a niche-within-a-niche club, that being young adult cancer survivor professional musician/composers. And when I say incomparably talented, I mean incomparably talented: Rebecca is a singer, songwriter, model, entrepreneur, and internationally-acclaimed violinist who has performed and recorded with the likes of Adele, Beyonce, Common, Jay Z, and the Jonas Brothers with appearances on Letterman, Conan, Fallon, the MTV Music Awards, and The Grammys. How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Be Rebecca Cherry, because she's performed there, too. And if that's not enough, she's a single mom raising a beautiful daughter named Ara. What's she's chosen to do with the life she has been given is not only inspirational but the very embodiment of what it means to get busy living. Enjoy the show.

    Not Your Father's Pharma Conference

    Not Your Father's Pharma Conference

    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.

Just listened to Frenetic Genius and Double Champion Jamie Wells, MD, It was inspiring, brilliantly executed, and thoughtful. The comradely felt by the listeners gave the interview a very relatable tone. Love the information given and the questions asked. Fantastic podcast!
