    S05E10 - Creating Systems For High Performing Integrative Pharmacies with Tyson Clarke

    Hello beautiful listeners! I’m so excited to share this episode with you diving into the journey of one psychology-majoring basketball player turned-brilliant market researcher turned-pharmacy performance coach. Tyson Clarke has studied the highest performers in several industries to come up with a customized approach to help independent pharmacies to serve their patients’ needs with an integrative approach while creating revenue streams to drive their business forward.

    Tyson started his career in elite sport, and was dismayed with how scarce effective training was present in the corporate world.

    Through working in Australian community pharmacy, and being more committed to results than positive feedback - he's created a tool for effective distribution of culturally sensitive intelligence - voiceta. A speech operated platform to train social skills in the same manner an elite athlete would.

    He's currently excited about changing the cultural landscape by helping people tell the truth, and gain communication skills with his extremely effective Assertiveness training.

    S05E06 - Advocating for Health Equity w/ Dr. Stephanie Young Moss

    S05E06 - Advocating for Health Equity w/ Dr. Stephanie Young Moss

    Today I want to highlight the work of another pharmacy and entrepreneur colleague, Dr. Stephanie Young Moss (aka “Yomo”). She caught my eye on Instagram, where she shines her light on wellness, family dynamics, pharmacy practice, and disparities in healthcare. A practical tip that she shared in the episode has stuck with me, about how learning goes both ways. For example, shadowing allows healthcare students to learn from professionals, but the mentors also get the opportunity to learn. A relationship with someone different than you helps you understand where they’re coming from and how you can serve different populations.

    Dr. Stephanie received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Xavier University of Louisiana College of Pharmacy and a Masters of Health Services Administration with a concentration in Health Economics from The University of Wyoming. She has worked in various areas in pharmacy, Community, Regulatory Compliance, Managed Care, and Health Economics and Outcomes Research.

    Over the past 20 years Dr. Moss has advocated for decreasing disparities in health care through her volunteer work. She uses her platform to educate families across the U.S. on ways to decrease and eliminate health disparities by incorporating simple wellness and mental health techniques. Dr. Moss has shared her views on international and national podcasts and local television news stations.

    Dr. Stephanie is the creator of the website www.drstephanieyomo.com where you will find practical health and wellness tips, ways to reduce healthcare disparities and simple tips for health and wellness professionals to enhance their presence on social media so they can stand out in their niche, build a successful brand and advocate for important causes.
    She is also the owner of Integrative Pharmacy Outcomes and Consulting, which focuses on educating underserved communities on ways to reduce and prevent health disparities.

    For nearly 2 decades, Dr. Stephanie has served on various boards and volunteer organizations that focus on health equity, decreasing implicit bias, addressing social determinants of health and empowering communities to advocate for their health. She has served on the boards for The Minority Health Coalition of Marion County and Eskenazi Health Center where she has served as the Clinical Quality Committee Chair, Board Secretary and is currently the Board Treasurer. She resides in Indianapolis, Indiana.

    You can connect with Dr. Yomo on all social media (@Dr. Stephanie Yomo) and www.drstephanieyomo.com.

    Quote: “Creating exposure and building professional relationships with someone different than you helps you understand them and their needs.”

    S05E05 - Ditching Diabetes with Dr. Nana Ama Quansah

    Hi, everyone, I feel privileged and blessed to be back this week with another episode for you all. Some of you may have seen on social media that I have recently had a baby so I’ve had my hands full. I also had an acute personal health emergency situation pop up but I’m hoping it’s nothing but up from here on out.

    All that is to say I’m a bit behind on my work, including this podcast, so thank you for sticking around and bearing with me. This next episode was recorded a while back, so I plan to have a live update on everything new that my next guest has been up to nowadays.

    Her pharmacy consulting practice was established with the sole purpose of bringing a human touch to patient care and offering healthcare solutions to private clinics and independent pharmacy owners by integrating wellness programs into their practices.

    Prior to becoming a Diabetes health coach, Dr. Nana worked in various Fortune 500 retail companies and large hospital settings as a pharmacist. Her diverse experience has made her well versed in understanding patient needs and challenges in the healthcare system.
    Dr Nana’s tips have been featured on several podcasts, diabetes workshops, webinars, social media, and International Television, including PAN African TV, and GoTV Africa.

    Dr. Nana’s excellent leadership skills, expertise, and passion for people have aided many people with type 2 diabetes in the United States and other nations in reaching their full potential through lifestyle changes to live a healthy life.

Informative and knowledgeable podcast

I love listening to Dr Marina. She has very interesting and informative guests. Her own knowledge is outstanding.
Despite being a traditionally trained PharmD, I have become very open to incorporating a holistic integrative Eastern medicine approach as well to benefit patients.
Keep up the great content.
