Breaking the Stigma Around Obesity and Weight Loss Medication

YourUpdateTV

There is a long history of stigma surrounding obesity and weight loss medications. When diet and exercise don’t lead to effective weight loss, sometimes it’s our biology that’s holding us back. Recently, Dr. Rekha Kumar, Head of Medical Affairs at Found, conducted a satellite media tour to talk about personalized weight loss and its benefits. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/qUhnxU91uPY Science shows that our biology can dictate up to 70% of weight gain, loss, and maintenance — yet the weight loss industry still reduces a person’s success to diet, exercise, and willpower. A variety of biological factors like genetics, hormones, metabolic rate and others contribute to our body’s “setpoint weight,” which is a certain weight that your body favors that is usually at the higher end of the scale. Your body wants to stay at this weight and fights hard to keep you there, and will even lower your metabolism or amp up your hunger signals to get back to your set point weight. Blaming obesity on a lack of willpower can take a psychological toll, causing people to feel shame, guilt, frustration or judgment, and fail to address biology as the core issue. Why Prescription Medication for Weight Loss? Obesity is a complicated disease that affects 40% of the US population, and it takes a personalized approach to each individual’s biology to treat it. Prescription medication can help people lose weight by fighting against their biology. Some medications work by suppressing appetite, and others work by curbing cravings. Weight loss medications have different mechanisms, and a doctor will have to evaluate if you're a good candidate for any of them. Not every medication is right for every person, and it’s common that if one doesn't work, a clinician might recommend trying a different medication. Historically, clinical care pathways for obesity management have only been available for patients at premiere academic medical centers, and typically have long wait lists. The Found’s program addresses a clear gap in access to weight care: Today, more than 40% of Americans have obesity, and yet only 1% of physicians specialize in obesity medicine. The medications Found offers are supported by clinical evidence to be highly effective and safe for helping aid with weight loss. Found has seen that members receiving medication plus behavior change support on the Found program have lost at least 13% more weight, and in some cases up to 229% more weight, than people receiving the same medication in clinical studies. Found is the largest online weight care clinic in the country, helping more than 160,000 Americans with their weight loss journey to-date. Found offers 13 different medications that can be combined to create more than 60 different possible treatment paths, available through their Prescription Program, each uniquely paired to address a person's biological and medical history. Found’s wide toolkit of medications fundamentally helps to serve a broader audience than others in the space. The Practice of Responsible Prescribing Found-affiliated providers are trained in the Found treatment protocol, which looks at various factors to determine the medication that will be safest and most effective for a member’s individual needs.Found-affiliated practitioners prescribe both FDA-approved branded anti-obesity medications as well as off-label generic combinations when determined safe by the treating clinician. The medications prescribed are the same medications that are offered in premiere academic medical centers.Treatment through the Found platform expands access to obesity treatment by bypassing long waitlists for appointments and copays for visits at in-person clinics. Found-affiliated medical providers are expected to always provide treatment and care that is in the best interest of their patients. For more information on Found’s weight care program, please visit joinfound.com Bio for Dr. Rekha Kumar, M.D., M.S. Dr. Rekha Kumar is recognized as an international leader in the field of Obesity Medicine. She is Head of Medical Affairs at weight care platform Found, as well as a practicing endocrinologist at an academic medical center in New York City. She also served as the former medical director of the American Board of Obesity Medicine. Dr. Kumar has lectured internationally on the topic of the medical assessment and treatment of obesity. She has published several papers and textbook chapters in her field and serves as an Associate Editor of the journal Obesity. She is frequently quoted in the media on topics ranging from the diabetes epidemic in the United States to discussing fad diets, exercise trends, and the complications of Covid-19 in patients with obesity. Dr. Kumar’s areas of expertise include the clinical assessment of patients with obesity and metabolic syndrome, the effect of obesity on reproductive health and fertility, and thyroid disease. Dr. Kumar completed her undergraduate studies at Duke University then received her master’s degree in Physiology from Georgetown University. She continued on to receive her M.D. from New York Medical College and completed her residency training in Internal Medicine at the New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill-Cornell Medical College. Dr. Kumar obtained her clinical fellowship in the combined Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Metabolism program at the Weill-Cornell Medical College/New York Presbyterian Hospital and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Ron DeSantis Leading in 2024 Polls Following Significant Efforts by Ready for Ron

Ready for Ron

Ready for Ron, the only credible independent group working to Draft Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, celebrated nearly six months of work that contributed to Governor DeSantis’s growing lead in several polls in key states – and will continue it’s successful DRAFT efforts. The advertising efforts, phone calls, petition, and grassroots campaign are helping generate significant lead s in Iowa, New Hampshire, Florida, and Georgia. Ready for Ron launched an advertising and grassroots mobilization effort in late May to help convince Ron DeSantis he has the support to win the Presidency in 2024. The PAC also filed a formal request (and later a lawsuit against) the Federal Election Commission to protect its right to share its supporter list with the candidate if he runs. Ready for Ron’s research by Impact Social which analyzes the online and social media discussion concerning Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump among swing voters shows Trump has lost most of the support among swing voters, and DeSantis is embraced by independents. The research (from more than 40,000 swing voters – likely the world’s largest focus group) also supports other polling that shows voters are favorably responding to the Ready for Ron call for him to run for President. In an op-ed entitled, “Even if Trump Could Win in 2024, Why Bother” conservative donor and free speech activist Shaun McCutcheon wrote, “Once you lose swing voters, it’s extremely difficult to get them back. Doing so isn’t impossible, especially for a man of such unique political prowess, but is it worth the time, money, and effort?” “If Election 2022 proved anything, it’s that DeSantis is the complete package: He is a true leader, seeing out the day-to-day roles and responsibilities that political leadership demands in good times and bad. DeSantis sticks to his principles — real, patriotic, American principles that don’t turn with the tide — but not at the expense of public service. DeSantis is not just a politician with savvy instincts; he is a public servant through and through,” wrote Ready for Ron Chief Political Strategist Ed Rollins in a November 10th op-ed in FoxNews.com. “DeSantis is not about ego or media hype; he is about results. That’s why Americans are ready for Ron to win the White House next.” Bob Carey, the leader of Veterans Ready for Ron, who led the effort to get petition signatures on Election Day stated, “Governor DeSantis knows how to rebuild and restore our military because he’s been part of it. He knows how to take care of our veterans because he is one. This veteran, and many more to follow, is proud to be part of these recruitment efforts. He is appealing to a broad cross-section of the electorate.” The leader of Students Ready for Ron, Dylan Dean said, “My generation is Ready for Ron to continue defending freedom and liberty - just as he has done in Florida – but on the national stage. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor DeSantis refused to kowtow to the radical Left, keeping the Sunshine State open for business and rejecting the impulse to impose onerous mask and vaccine mandates on citizens of the state. It revealed true bravery and respect for liberty, and that's why so many students like me are supporting him now.” “There is zero doubt that the efforts we are undertaking at Ready for Ron are making a difference, stated Gabriel Llanes, Ready for Ron Executive Director. “People have taken note of that leadership. Competence and professionalism shine through. And they will keep shining through in the years to come. Leading up to 2024, the only viable path for Republicans to win back the White House begins and ends with DeSantis – and we will continue to make this case to voters.” “We will continue fighting for everyone’s rights. We will continue fighting back against those at the FEC seeking to deny your freedoms. And we will continue fighting to draft Ron DeSantis, beat Joe Biden in 2024, and save America,” stated Dan Backer, legal counsel to Ready for Ron who filed the lawsuit against the FEC. “The polling proves our efforts are working, Americans are ready for Ron, and nothing will stand in their way — especially not the FEC.” Ready for Ron continues its TV and online advertising efforts to engage Americans to sign the petition at ReadyForRon.com to Draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with a ‘Ready for Ron’ spokesperson, please contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or dan@readyforron.com.

Why You Should Get a Digital Vehicle Inspection From Your Auto Repair Shop

AutoTech IQ

A digital vehicle inspection (DVI) is the perfect upgrade to an old process. DVIs hold shops accountable to the motorist through transparency and identify trends in wear and tear. Though not offered by all auto repair shops, DVIs can give you a true bill of health for your vehicle without you having to foot the bill for unnecessary repairs. What Is a Digital Vehicle Inspection and How Does It Work? A DVI is typically done with a tablet that performs a 35-70 point check. This multipoint check includes media and plainly worded information about your car's health. After all of this is recorded, the information is stored digitally and delivered to you and the auto repair shop’s database. DVIs allow technicians to get granular with highly detailed information. During the inspection, each section is broken into a color coding system of green, yellow and red. Green — Good to go Yellow — Needs repair or maintenance soon Red — Needs action now Advantages of Digital Vehicle Inspections A DVI is a superior option to its paper counterpart in many ways. Here are five of those advantages. You See What the Tech Sees One of the strongest cases for getting a DVI is transparency because you see what techs see. DVIs allow you to have an intangible living document that you can store and share without the risk of it getting lost. Where service advisors once had to explain a problem that a motorist may not understand, DVIs allow you to be educated while saving you time and possibly money. In the past, you would have to set aside time to talk to your service advisor and make choices based on a verbal assessment, but a DVI with photo, video and audio aspects will help you make educated choices. Another perk of a DVI is that you can engage with your service provider on your time by leaving comments and questions within the document itself. When you can understand a detailed assessment of your inspection results in an organized format, you can take the guesswork out of what you need to have done. Less Paperwork Less paperwork means less loss. The footprint that a DVI creates is physically minute but won’t be easily lost. Finding your inspection can be as easy as searching for the email. The other benefit of going paperless and getting a DVI is that there is rarely actionable information on traditional inspections. The lack of clarity on a regular inspection sheet isn’t easily read or presented in simple terms like a DVI is. Audio/Visual Insights With the augmented use of media, technicians can easily go through the DVI process and capture the problems at their source. By finding and explaining what problems are happening, you’ll end up spending less time getting clarification and less money because you won’t end up paying for things you don’t need. Ease of Inspections Because DVIs allow a technician to quickly walk through each step, monotonous tasks are removed. Things a tech would have previously had to write out are replaced by typed notes, photos, videos and sometimes audio. Quicker Repairs With all of the benefits combined, a DVI means quicker repairs at the right time for the right things. With this top-down look at your vehicle's health, you'll know your vehicle's problem areas before they become a bigger problem. Get a Bill of Health for Your Vehicle Just like a doctor's visit, the first action is always checking the vital signs, independent of what the actual concern is. The DVI accomplishes exactly that for your vehicle. Creating a bill of health using simple-to-understand terms and augmented with images and videos gives you a complete overview and allows for budgeting and deferred maintenance without risking the vehicle's health being compromised. For that reason, DVIs are often called Digital Vehicle Health Inspections or Digital Auto Checkups. It’s Time to Go Digital Even if you want a hard copy, going paperless with a DVI is harmless — the results can always be printed. Just like a person goes to the doctor for a yearly physical, a DVI will give you the best picture of the health of your vehicle. AutoTechIQ empowers car owners to be confident about the money spent on their vehicles at certified shops.

Recently, my car started sounding strange and I am not sure what to do.

AutoTech IQ

Modern vehicles are highly computerized and completely different from the mechanically controlled automobiles of 30 years ago. Although computerization has made vehicles much more reliable and fuel-efficient, car symptoms like squealing, squeaking, humming, growling, and other noises still occur. Our tips help car and truck owners take the next steps after their vehicle makes odd sounds. Can I repair the car myself to eliminate the noise? Most of the symptoms known to AutoTechIQ, which collects millions of work orders across the country, need a professional inspection. A key element of successful auto repair is the ability to educate the customer about why the repair needs to happen and what safety, cost avoidance, and environmental impact it imposes. Then, with a list of options on the table, the customer can decide the best outcome for their vehicle and their goals. Just go to AutoTechIQ.com and use the shop selector to find the best-suited shop in your area. AutoTechIQ introduced three certification levels for the shops featured on the map, so make sure you select the right one for you. AutoTechIQ.com has made educational content available to you in an easy-to-digest way and with a minimum of the technical lingo experts often say. What are commonly occurring car noises? We'll list common problematic noises cars make below. If you're experiencing any of those, listen to their reference noise in the YouTube link and send it to your trusted auto repair shop for reference. Squealing noise when driving Car sounds like a lawn mower Car won’t start but not making any noise Humming noise while driving What other symptoms should I look for? Noise is often the most dominant symptom your car makes but not the only one. For example, a failed serpentine belt pulley can make a very noticeable noise and create a distinct odor of burnt rubber. Reoccurring problems are especially concerning, and it is important to describe the context of these issues to your trusted auto repair shop professionals. Knowing the characteristics of the problem helps the professional to eliminate up to 90% of the potential root causes and saves you a lot of money for unnecessary diagnostics or repair. How do I find a professional auto repair shop I can trust? There has been a significant change in how former mom-and-pop shops focus on repairing vehicles. Now, they focus on helping you determine your vehicle's best course of action by meeting your goals for longevity and dependability. What should be my budget when taking my car to an auto repair shop? Traditionally, most car owners follow the service interval recommendation provided by their trusted auto repair shop or just go to the shop when problems arise and let the shop fix them. Most of the time, the latter is the most expensive way of taking care of your vehicle if you add up the cost of each visit. Using a preventive maintenance plan offered by your trusted auto repair shop will open up the opportunity to talk about future expenses or what is called deferred services. You can start budgeting future expenses and still save money since preventive maintenance is significantly more cost-effective than paying the repair cost when problems occur. Condition-based inspections take the preventive maintenance concept even further. Your auto repair shop conducts a vehicle inspection every time you drop off your vehicle. The results are compared to previous inspection results to determine wear and tear patterns. Based on those patterns, the best course of action is presented to you. Why is it important to ask for a Digital Auto Checkup? Many auto repair shops listen to your concern and will provide a solution right away by taking care of the problem you are describing. When you go to any doctor with a symptom, does the doctor immediately go to the concern you are expressing? Typically they don’t do that unless you are in the emergency room. Instead, vital signs will be recorded first. The same can be true for your vehicle. You first establish baseline health before addressing the particular symptom. The bill of health of a vehicle is called the Digital Auto Checkup or Digital Vehicle Health Inspection. What is AutoTechIQ’s advantage to me as a car owner? The majority of car owners dread the appointment at an auto repair shop. The shops in the AutoTechIQ network are selected based on criteria putting your education and professional service as their main focus. Three criteria not used in other business directories are: The business has received at least 100 Google reviews with an average score of more than 4.5 out of 5.0. A digital vehicle health inspection is used consistently to examine the health of your vehicle and covers at least 35 topics. The documentation of mint and problem conditions uses well-documented images and videos to give you complete transparency.

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Trustees Join Homeless Outreach

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology

Emphasizing that community service is “in the DNA” of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, a dozen members of its Board of Trustees last week participated in an outreach project to benefit unhoused people in Los Angeles. About 600 kits, including blankets and personal care items, were collected, boxed and hand-delivered to residents of Los Angeles’ Skid Row, according to Dr. Nadia Rojas Jones, the faculty member who has organized the annual effort with students from the school’s three Southern California campuses for the past seven years. “We are here to show our support of faculty and students in their efforts to help underserved populations, whether it’s those without permanent shelter or in communities of color or people with low income,” said Terrence Joe Layng, Ph.D., Chair of the Board of Trustees. “The commitment to community service is what differentiates The Chicago School-- our students and faculty are deeply involved in the communities they serve,” said Trustee Victoria Dolan, former CFO of Revlon. Every year, The Chicago School’s students provide 1.2 million volunteer service hours in 600 organizations across the United States, according to Dr. Michele Nealon, Psy.D. “There are nearly 70,000 unhoused individuals in Los Angeles County today, a four percent increase from two years ago,” she said. “We know that many of them have mental health issues that are going undiagnosed and untreated.” The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, a non-profit higher education institution headquartered in Los Angeles, serves 6,000 students on seven U.S. campuses (including online). Two-thirds of the student body identifies as people of color. # About The Chicago School of Professional Psychology: Integrating theory with hands-on experience, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology provides education rooted in a commitment to innovation, service, and community for thousands of diverse students across the United States and globally.
