Raul Valdes-Perez, PhD, is CEO of OnlyBoth Inc., based in Pittsburgh, Pa. He teamed up with Andre Lessa in 2014 to develop a unique artificial intelligence engine that delivers performance transparency in healthcare. OnlyBoth’s delivery of comparative, language-based insights shows users specifically how nursing homes are excelling or failing. The concept was born during Raul’s time at Carnegie Mellon in the 1990s, during which he received an NSF grant on a “new task of knowledge discovery” to provide insights in a programmable way. He’s expanding the concept across healthcare at large with additional search engines that provide context-rich comparative insights. Valdes-Perez previously co-founded Vivisimo, Inc., acquired by IBM in 2012. He can be reached at valdes@onlyboth.com.

Who Could Forget with Frank Healy

FrankHealy_ProfileTHUMB.jpg

 

Frank Healy, who remembers every day of his life since he was six years old and is now 58 joins eHealth Radio and the Personal Development Channel. Frank remembers the day of the week, the weather, news, and personal events. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor and life coach. He has written several books on healing your memories and today is the launch of his memoir “Who Could Forget”.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Frank Healy discuss the following:

  1. When did you realize you had an extraordinary memory?
  2. What are the good and bad points of remembering everything?
  3. How did having this memory affect your career choices?
  4. What are the ways you help people with this?
  5. How does it affect your life now?

 

Frank Healy is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Life Coach. He is one of about 80 people who has been classified as having Hyperthymesia by the University of California. Frank participated in their research studies because he remembers every day of his life since he was six years old. He is now in his 50’s.

His memory of each day includes the day of the week, the weather in his locale, news events and personal experiences. Recalling so much in his life had its advantages and disadvantages. The advantages include recall of every happy experience he had with friends, family, school and his wife. The corollary of that is that he remembers all the negative things. Bad days at work and school, slights from people, romantic breakups etc. 

Before he began his own journey, he would recall bad memories with the same emotional intensity as if he was experiencing it now. He had learned to let go of the feelings. He now counsels and coaches people to heal from the ill effects of their own traumatic and unpleasant memories. This can help people be happier and move on to a successful present and future.

Frank lives with his wife in Dennisville, New Jersey. He is in private practice at Associates for Life Enhancement in Northfield, New Jersey. Frank enjoys going to the beach, reading, writing, playing quizzo with friends (It's a trivia game) and playing ball with his grandsons.
