    How to Check the "Leadership" Box on Applications with Pharmacy Residency Podcast Host, Tony Guerra

    How to Check the "Leadership" Box on Applications with Pharmacy Residency Podcast Host, Tony Guerra

    In this episode, Hillary Blackburn (host of Talk to Your Pharmacist) joins Tony Guerra of the Pharmacy Residency Podcast, who asks about how applicants should fill in the "leadership" checkbox of the big five that programs look for: clinical, research, teaching, service, and leadership and how you did it on your way to residency. Then he asks what is the advice you would give to yourself as an applicant after you've talked to these leaders in the field, what are the RPDs and residents looking for under leadership?

    Tony thinks leaders find it hard to do the humble brag. He’s seen letters of intent that completely omit regional and presidential leadership positions, but this is a gender thing where he’s never seen a male omit this, but women sometimes do. Students think the reader will go to their CV, when the reader might not get to the CV if the LOI doesn't mention these qualifications.

    Tony dives into pages 80 and 81 of my book, How Pharmacists Lead, with the personal versus professional accomplishments, reticence for networking, and recognition that some recommenders will do a much better job "talking the candidate up" while others might not. In a book, it's always better to point someone to a chapter rather than a book so that they have a place that they might connect with and get immediate help with their pain point, but Tony always saw Chapter 4 as outlining the challenges and the rest of the book as the solutions.

    Tony thinks many students may lack the president or VP position but might have a story like this that demonstrates leadership. Tony thinks that How Pharmacists Lead does a great job of telling stories that these students applying for residency can lean on as a framework to write their own. He asks how Hillary would tell those kinds of stories that demonstrate leadership outside of formal leadership roles.

    Connecting the Dots between Pharmacists and Patients with Dr. Karmen Stephens

    Connecting the Dots between Pharmacists and Patients with Dr. Karmen Stephens

    In this episode, our guest is Dr. Karmen Stephens is the Vice President of Clinical at Consana. After graduating from Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy in 2010, she went right to work for that same busy chain, but ultimately ended up in Long Term Care, looking for a way to improve patient care. A chance meeting with two technology companies changed all of that (ask her about it, she loves to tell the story!) and lead to the creation of Consana. They started Consana because to change the way that clinical pharmacy services are paid for and delivered. By doing this, they can help patients better manage their medications and chronic disease states and achieve better health outcomes. As the VP of Clinic, Karmen's primary responsibilities include strategic program development and implementation, including oversight of Consana clinical operations and service innovation.

    In this episode, our guest is Dr. Danielle Perrodin, Personal Style & Identity Coach. Her mission is to help women create happier, healthier more beautiful lives. Through integrating the mind, body, and spirit, my clients expedite the time it takes to close the gap between their highest authentic self (who they truly are) and how they appear to the world. She combines her love for fashion and understanding of how the brain works to give her clients unique tools to style their mind and body in order to learn how to Be Her(£) Now!

    Some of Danielle's talking points:
    -Positive mindset is important, but emotional processing and spiritual healing is the key to success (Success should be defined on an individual basis)
    -Importance of showing up authentically to build that Know, Love, Trust relationship in order to build meaningful relationships quickly
    -Always loved fashion, never thought it could be a career until I hired a business coach
    -Trained as Integrative Life Coach in using the PunchLine Approach to help my clients gain power and control of their life and create a life they love
    -In one year, I launched my styling business, and I have been invited to be a Fashion Institute of Louisiana Board member, interviewed for a chapter of a best selling author's new book as an expert stylist, and have a call this week with a NYC fashion designer to work on her new design line called Dressing for the NOW.

    The SnapBack Postpartum Fitness with Dr. Pinkey Patel

    The SnapBack Postpartum Fitness with Dr. Pinkey Patel

    In this episode, we have as a guest, Pinkey Patel, PharmD, who is a clinical pharmacist and personal trainer that specializes in pre/postnatal corrective exercise. As the CEO/founder of @thesnapback_, she is passionate about bridging the gap in women’s maternal healthcare globally by making pregnancy and postpartum resources accessible, easy-to-understand and helpful in teaching women to advocate for their health in the form of an app, consultancy, and blog! The SnapBack aims to provide women with a safe community, simple resources and evidence-based methods to implement and restore a sense of self, both physically and mentally.

    The average time between delivery and the first postpartum follow up visit is six weeks. After six weeks of sedentary living and physical-mental changes, most women are cleared to return to normal activity. Nine months of creating life and readjusting organs, cannot be solved effectively in one 30 minute appointment after six weeks. Women deserve better tools and guidance. Too often, she has seen new mamas returning to their pre-pregnancy workouts and unfortunately sustaining serious injury as they have not allowed their bodies to heal appropriately. From diastasis recti to leakage, there are significant body changes that first need to be addressed before embarking on a weight loss program.

    Employing the The Snapback methodology during and after the postpartum period will change the trajectory of how women view “fitness” during pregnancy. Her hope is to make simple, preventative and efficient Snapback techniques to revolutionize the way women recover. Society thrives when women thrive. She wants women to do more than Snapback. She wants them to become a stronger, more resilient version of themselves.

    When she’s not playing mama to a 12 month baby boy, Arjun and three-year-old daughter, Karishma, you can find her pumping iron, trying to squeeze in a run or enjoying some good ole’ tex mex, who can say no to chips and salsa? With a baby in one arm and a laptop in the other, she is on a mission to help mamas recover the right way!

    Pregnancy to Baby Nutrition with Dr. Lily Naanos

    Pregnancy to Baby Nutrition with Dr. Lily Naanos

    Pregnancy to Baby Nutrition with Dr. Lily Naanos

    In this episode, we hear from Dr. Lily Naanos who specializes in nutrition for pregnancy, postpartum, and babies. Her passion lies in supporting mothers and babies through holistic nutrition and natural remedies. What sparked this interest was my own journey and challenges transitioning to motherhood and seeing that there was not a lot of support out there for women during this critical stage of life.
    The most commonly sought advice is from parents seeking support in their baby's transition to solid foods and navigating adverse food reactions including food allergies, food sensitivities and eczema. Dr. Naanos helps with introducing babies to the top allergenic foods in the ideal window of 6-12 months to reduce the risk of future food allergies, as well as helping baby's gut and immune support through food and supplements to help them outgrow food sensitivities and eczema.
