Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Ryan M. Clancy discuss the following:

Healthcare Providers Have a Vital Role to Play in Educating Patients About Illegal Online Pharmacies

December 8, 2016
00:0000:00

asop_staff_libby.jpg

Libby Baney, Executive Director of the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies, a non-profit organization dedicated to making the Internet safe for consumers worldwide again joins eHealth Radio and the Pharmaceutical & Health News Channels.

ASOP Global recently launched a campaign to educate pharmacists, doctors and other healthcare providers about illegal online pharmacies, counterfeit medicines and the tools they need to help keep their patients safe online.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Libby Baney discuss the following:

  • What is the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies?
  • Why is the focus of your new campaign healthcare providers?
  • How prevalent are illegal online pharmacies?
  • What are the risks associated with buying prescription drugs from illegal online pharmacies?
  • Can you tell our listeners what to look out for to avoid these dangers?

Summary: What can consumers do to stay safe when shopping for medicines online? Consumers should visit www.BuySafeRx.pharmacy to verify whether a website is safe BEFORE they order any prescription medicines online. We also encourage consumers to look for websites that end in dot-pharmacy, like www.medlife.pharmacy and www.safe.pharmacy, because only entities that are approved by NABP legally qualify to have a dot-pharmacy website. 

Libby Baney is the executive director of the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies (ASOP Global), an international non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. which she founded in 2009. In this capacity, Libby leads ASOP operations, shapes public policy, and advocates for increased international attention to the issue of illegal online drug sellers.

A lawyer by training and health advocate by nature, Libby is a prolific speaker and writer, regularly engaging with diverse audiences on issues at the intersection of Internet technology and healthcare. She leads strategic workshops and speaks on these issues worldwide; writes policy documents; and interacts with international corporate leaders and policymakers.

Libby’s work spans multiple continents, which has been covered by local, national and international media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Politico, Roll Call, The Hill, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, The Washington Times, The Indianapolis Star, Inside Health Policy, Pharmacy Today, ABC News, CNN, and C-SPAN.

In addition to her work for ASOP, Libby is a partner at FaegreBD Consulting and Counsel with Faegre Baker Daniels LLP where she works on Internet policy, intellectual property rights, pharmacy, telemedicine/telehealth, and pharmaceutical supply chain matters.

All-on-4® Dental Implant Treatment

December 7, 2016
00:0000:00

cw500.png

Dr. Cramin P. Wiltz II, DMD, CDT, of Madison Prosthodontics: Aesthetic & Reconstructive Dentistry which is a specialty dental practice treating the most challenging dental cases in the Madison, Alabama area again joins eHealth Radio and the Cosmetic Dentistry, Dental Care & Health News Channels.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Cramin P. Wiltz II discuss the following:

  • What is the All-on-4 treatment concept?
  • How does it differ from having dentures?
  • How long does the procedure take?
  • Can one really eat anything after having the All-on-4 procedure done?
  • Will the All-on-4 procedure last the rest of your life?

 

“I’ve known since high school that I wanted to go into medicine. When I started exploring my options in college, I kept thinking of my father, who lived with dentures since he was 19, always had problems with the fit and was self-conscious in social situations. I thought of all the people in the small, four-stoplight town I grew up in who didn’t have any teeth or had missing teeth. And it made me think about dentistry as a way I could truly make a difference in people’s lives.

“In both college and dental school, I had a lot of great mentors who guided me toward specialty dentistry. I made more dentures than anyone and made them all myself (unlike classmates who sent theirs out to a lab). I think the highlight of my educational experience was casting my dad’s dentures. He finally could be confident about his smile.

“In prosthodontics, I love the experience, love the interaction with people and love the ability to see results and get my patients’ feedback. Unlike general dentistry, prosthodontics lets me create anything I put my mind to, designing exactly what is needed for each unique dental situation. My artistry goes into someone else’s mouth and I can put my own signature on it. I want it to last.

“I have focused my practice on the difficult cases, the complex cases, and the highly aesthetic cases that can’t be handled by a general dentist. I want to give you the best service and the best solution I can—something that not only works well and looks great but stays in place for a long time.

“My goal is to have you leave my office knowing you’re getting the best quality dental restoration possible and that you don’t have to think about what most people take for granted: smiling, eating and talking. Knowing I’ve done that makes me happy.”
