    Anti-Hunger Activism, With Rachel Cahill, MPA

    Anti-Hunger Activism, With Rachel Cahill, MPA

    Our guest is passionate about the heart of one of America's most critical issues, food insecurity. Joining Dr. Huntley on the podcast is Rachel Cahill, MPA, the principal consultant and owner of a policy and advocacy consulting firm serving anti-hunger and anti-poverty organizations across the country.
    Rachel is a nationally recognized expert in public benefits eligibility and enrollment policy, specializing in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as SNAP. Rachel is passionate about making SNAP stronger, more accessible, and more equitable. They delve into how the public health industry has been integral in her advocacy journey and why she’s so passionate about anti-hunger and the SNAP program.
    They discuss where the tension lies in the anti-hunger activism sphere, how the knowledge of public health helps her better serve her clients and community, and the science that backs up SNAP.
    Through getting to know Rachel, Dr. Huntley hopes to showcase how public health overlaps with a lot of different industries and to see public health in action from a slightly different perspective!

    Cervical Health Awareness Discussion

    Cervical Health Awareness Discussion

    Did you know that cervical cancer is almost entirely preventable with proper vaccination, regular screenings, pap smears, and HPV testing? Yet, so many women across the US are still being diagnosed with cervical cancer.
    Join Dr. Huntley on the Public Health Epidemiology Conversations podcast, as she delves into the topic of cervical health and women’s health, alongside two innovative leaders, Erica Horn and Dr. Kristi McClamroch. We are passionate about having vulnerable conversations about important topics such as cervical health and women’s health in general and dive deep into how these topics affect women and the work we do in public health.
    We highlight the importance of empowering young women, especially in the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) demographic, to both take action in their healthcare and learn to boldly advocate for themselves. We hope this talk is thought-provoking and continues the conversation on these topics. Thanks for tuning in!

    Should We Explain It Once, Or Repeat?

    Should We Explain It Once, Or Repeat?

    If you work in public health, you’ve probably had to explain an industry term to the general public on more than one occasion. How often should we be doing this? How can we ensure that the information we’re conveying is understood by the broader community?
    Join Dr. Huntley as she explores the intersection of public health, communication, and community to answer this fundamental question: How often should we define public health terms for the general public before we can be sure that they get it?
    We unpack the many opportunities public health professionals have to improve their communication, how to engage with your community, why we should all be striving to learn from those we serve, and much more.
    Tune in to hear it all!

    PHEC 336: What is a Chicken Coop?

    PHEC 336: What is a Chicken Coop?

    You might think that the question ‘What is a chicken coop?’ is pretty straightforward and if you were to ask a farmer, you’d be right. However, if you posed the same question to a truck driver, there’s a high chance the answer would be radically different from anything you anticipated.
    So, what does all this have to do with public health? Also, what does it matter if farmers and truckers give two wildly different answers?
    In this episode, Dr. Huntley takes a closer look at the specialized terms we use as public health professionals, how this can often confuse those outside our field, and why learning to communicate clearly and effectively is so important.
    Tune in to find out how you can learn to improve your communication, listen to feedback, become more receptive to non-verbal cues, and more, in today’s informative and thought-provoking conversation!

Pioneering Public Health Conversations

Dr. Huntley has truly been a beacon of light in pioneering Public Health conversations. When I first started listening to her, I had absolutely NO idea of who and what I wanted to be in Public Health. Your podcast has encouraged me and helped transform my mindset and helped to remove the barriers that I placed on myself. Thank you for being open and transparent and not putting a limit on your guests and how others can learn from and with you. Highly recommended podcast. There isn’t an episode that I miss!
