    New Normal, Same Cancer

    COVID-19 has also brought with it a challenge to those facing a cancer diagnosis. Within less than 2 months following the start of the pandemic, average weekly new cancer cases dropped by about 46% across six major types of cancers, including breast, colorectal, lung, pancreatic, gastric and esophageal cancer combined.

    On this episode of the Women In Government Podcast, our panel discusses the ways we can work to identify cancer earlier through improving screening and testing capabilities, ensuring equitable care, while leveraging digital platforms and prioritizing personalized medicine.

    Alzheimer’s Disease: The Importance of Early Detection & Diagnosis

    Quality care for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias starts with an early, documented and disclosed diagnosis. However, less than 50% of people with dementia are diagnosed and of those who are—less than 50% are told.

    According to the World Health Organization, tens of millions of people worldwide live with Alzheimer’s disease, and that number is expected to grow in the coming years, outpacing the healthcare resources needed to manage it and costing billions of dollars.

    On this episode of the Women In Government Podcast, our panel discusses why it's important for states to consider policies that promote early detection and diagnosis - including public awareness programs and health care professional education and training that creates the infrastructure necessary to address the growing public health crisis.

    Lessons Learned: Caring for Employees, Patients and the Community During COVID-19

    To say that the COVID-19 pandemic made us readjust to a “new normal” is an understatement. Over the past several months, we’ve grown accustomed to social distancing, wearing masks everywhere we go, working from home and attending multiple virtual meetings throughout the day.

    On this episode of the Women In Government Podcast, our panel discusses the lessons learned while caring for employees, patients and the community during these uncertain times.

    Over the past few months, we have seen unprecedented levels of collaboration, increased use of technology, and new ways of working that we would never have thought possible. 2020 may have been a year like no other, but it has certainly transformed our workforce and health care community into stronger versions of themselves.

    The Co-Pandemic: Breaking Down Barriers to Mental Health Access in the Age of COVID-19

    The Co-Pandemic: Breaking Down Barriers to Mental Health Access in the Age of COVID-19

    Women In Government Podcast
    The Co-Pandemic: Breaking Down Barriers to Mental Health Access in the Age of COVID-19

    The COVID-19 pandemic is making an existing mental health crisis worse. Experts are warning mental health issues and substance use disorders will be exacerbated for people who already have these conditions, and may lead to new mental health and substance use issues in the general population.

    On this episode of the Women In Government Podcast, our panel discusses how methods to restrict access to lifesaving medications can hurt patients and state budgets. Health outcomes data shows that prior authorization policies for psychotropic medications in Medicaid patient populations have led to poorer outcomes for patients, including medication discontinuation, lapses in care, homelessness, emergency room visits, incarceration and an increased use of crisis services.

    Mental health treatments are not one size fits all. Treatment plans should be designed between a patient and their doctor.

    Vaccine Development for COVID-19

    The past eight months have transformed our daily lives. We’ve seen masks, social distancing, and washing our hands for 20 seconds or more become part of regular routines—all while we wait for a treatment or vaccine for COVID-19.

    As we head into the cooler months and the infection rates increase around the country, the biopharmaceutical industry is working around the clock to find solutions.

    On this episode of the Women In Government Podcast, our panel discusses one of the most important topics affecting lives around the world, the outbreak of COVID-19, a disease caused by a novel strain of coronavirus, and where we stand in terms of a vaccine.
