Yes, Virginia, We’re Finally on iTunes (So You Can Quit Your Nagging)

13 Feb

Well, I can finally say that we’re on iTunes, finally.  Slowly but surely we’re uploading all our titles.  We just got tired of people (including my kids) saying, (with total disbelief), “What?? You’re not on iTunes????”  So when Commander Kevin Dorrance MD, a key visionary-architect of the National Naval Medical Center’s Integrated Medical Home model, happened to be sitting next to me at a conference lunch and gave me The Look, waving his pendant of an iPod Shuffle under my nose, as he asked, “What?? You’re not on iTunes????”  That did it.  We got our act together.  There’s just so much ridicule a Luddite can take, after all.

Many thanks to Lisa B, the gorgeous, good-hearted, super-capable, Pacific Northwest executive, who decided that at her 40th birthday party (Cowgirl/BBQ motif, with entertainment by none other than the multi-talented Michael Peterson , instead of gifts, people could write checks to a special Health Journeys fund, to provide giveaway audios for our troops!! What a great idea!!

And thanks, too, to those excellent folks at the University of Arizona’s Center for Integrative Medicine (you know the bunch: Andy Weil, Victoria Maizes, Tieraona Low Dog et al), we were able to make some resources available - basic info and digital downloads - for traumatized Tucsonans, impacted by the terrible shootings at the Safeway.  Sadly, there seem to be more and more occasions for doing this.  We had a page available for the Virginia Tech students, faculty and staff too.
This specially designed posttraumatic stress page explains what this condition actually is, tells what you can do to nip its symptoms in the bud, and provides several guided imagery programs designed to do just that. We like to make these available free of charge when tragedies like these occur, and thanks to the magic of digital technology, we can afford to do it!

And finally you should know that the very prolific Ruth Buczynski of NICABM has put together yet another new series of broadcasts, this time on the topic of women’s health, featuring the redoubtable quartet of Chris Northrup, Joan Borysenko, Alice Domar and Pamela Smith. (That’s the thing about Ruth - she always finds stellar presenters who are loaded with plentiful, illuminating content!)

So practitioners from around the world will be looking at critical issues shaping women's health. It's free to listen at the time of broadcasts. But if you miss it, you can also sign-up for a Gold Subscription for the recordings, transcripts, and CE/CME credits. And keep in mind, when you buy these juicy packages, you also support NICABM's mission to provide these teleseminars free to clinicians all over the world. (It’s trippy to see how many countries are represented on these things.) To learn more, click here .

OK, that’s it for now!  Take care and be well!

All best,
