Eve Goldberg, the Founder of the non-profit BigVision, designed to help sustain the recovery from addiction in young adult ages joins eHealth Radio and the Addiction Prevention and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Eve Goldberg discuss the following:

  1. Tell me about your non profit BiGVISION & what it is exactly?
  2. How and why did you found it and when?
  3. During these times, do you see that addiction and death due to overdose is on the rise?
  4. How important is community and support when in recovery?
  5. Tell me what your vision for BigVision is?

Summary: The rate of deaths due to accidental overdose is on the rise. Recovery is possible but isolation and stigma have blocked the way. BigVision NYC is a safe ‘virtual’ and in person haven to help young people gain the support and companionship they need.


BIGVISION was founded in January 2015, by Eve Goldberg, a year after her 23-year-old son, Isaac, died of an accidental drug overdose. She was motivated to do something to help young adults in recovery in New York City learn to live fun, meaningful, sober lives.

Eve is part of a wonderful family business operating in New York for over 50 years. She has now committed to making BIGVISION a reality by creating entertaining, engaging events and building a community where the BIGVISION and their family, can enjoy themselves in a cool, hip, substance-free environment.

BIGVISION today has a strong board of directors, advisory board, staff and friends that help BIGVISION meet its goal of helping those in recovery. For those want to join the BIGVISION community, donate, or support and create events go to www.bigvision.nyc.

Walking Your Way to Better Health with Joyce Shulman

Walking Your Way to Better Health with Joyce Shulman

Joyce Shulman, the Founder and CEO of 99 Walks, a community that encourages health, fitness, and connection through walking joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Fitness Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Joyce Shulman discuss the following:

  1. What are some of the earliest memories you associate with walking?
  2. How has walking changed your life?
  3. How can walking improve happiness?
  4. Why is walking good for connection and relationships?
  5. 99 Walks is more than a step tracker. Can you tell us more about it?

Tip: Exercise in general, and walking in particular, has incredible benefits for our mind, our mood and our bodies. Research shows that a regular walking practice can reduce our risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and several types of cancer. In fact, walking is so good for you that one study showed that a regular walking practice can add up to seven years to your life. (study by European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress as reported in the Independent)


Joyce Shulman is Co-Founder and CEO of 99 Walks: a wellness and walking lifestyle brand, community and app on a mission to create community and get a million women walking. A self-confessed idea junkie, Joyce traded her law career as a commercial litigator for an entrepreneurial journey focused on what mattered to her most: family, community, and empowering women to get healthy, happy, and chase their dreams.

Throughout her personal and professional life, Joyce’s regular walking practice has been her key for managing stress, fueling creativity, and maintaining her health. After discovering that the research bears out all that she learned instinctively, Joyce and her husband and partner Eric Cohen founded 99 Walks to help women experience what recent studies have shown: that walking can improve decision-making and executive function, combat depression, increase creativity and literally add years to one’s life.

In addition to being the “Pack Leader” at 99 Walks, Joyce is an author, speaker, TEDx veteran, podcaster, and consultant for companies and women’s group, where she shares her expertise about the life-changing impact of a consistent, intentional walking practice.

Joyce received her Bachelors in Business Management from the University of Maryland and her JD, Cum Laude, from St. John’s University School of Law. After law school, she spent more than a dozen years as a New York City lawyer where her practice focused on complex commercial litigation. She calls Sag Harbor, New York home where she lives with one husband, two teenagers, and a slightly unruly dog named Moose.

A proud alumnus of three prestigious Historical Black Colleges & Universities, Dr. Moore has contributed to not only groundbreaking medical advances based in ethnic diversity, but has also been a leading voice in the fight for social justice.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Milton Moore discuss the following:

  1. How did Moore Unique Skin Care begin?
  2. How are Moore Unique Skin Care products unique?
  3. What is your #BlackSkinDeep initiative all about?
  4. In addition to Moore Unique Skin Care, what are the specialties of your clinical dermatology practice?
  5. What's next for your Moore Unique "empire?"

Dr. Milton D. Moore, M.D., RPh, is a dermatologist, pharmacist, and the founder and CEO of Moore Unique Skin Care, LLC, and Moore Unique Dermatology & Spa based in Houston, Texas.

For nearly three decades, Dr. Moore has been a renowned leader in groundbreaking clinical therapies involving the use of lasers to help people reduce the appearance of moles, scars, and other aesthetic skin abnormalities. Early in his career, he also recognized the need for products to address skin problems among ethnically diverse populations -- particularly pseudofolliculitis barbae, or PFB, a medical condition characterized by painful ingrown hairs that can be exacerbated by shaving. Research studies show that Black men present PFB at higher rates compared to other ethnic groups.

Dr. Moore developed several patented, science-based formulas and technologies to create the Ultimate Shaving Solution, a collection of products that comprise the centerpieces of his Moore Unique Skin Care brand. The products are marketed through Amazon and Walgreens and have earned recognition from Walmart’s “Made in America” vendor program. Dr. Moore’s ongoing clinical research continues to focus on advancing the development of safe and scientifically efficacious breakthrough solutions to address the evolving skincare needs of diverse global populations.

A native of New Orleans, Dr. Moore is the proud alumnus of three prestigious Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Navigating Addiction Where Nothing is “Normal”

Navigating Addiction Where Nothing is “Normal”

February 13, 2021

 

Kushner-Headshot2020web_9c2oy.jpg

 

Dr. David Kushner, the Medical Director at BRIGHTSIDE Clinic where he has treated hundreds of patients with Opioid Use Disorder joins eHealth Radio and the Addiction Prevention and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. David Kushner discuss the following:

  1. What led you specifically to addiction medicine?
  2. Substance abuse is surrounded by stigma, still, today. What is the number one thing you want people to know about those you help?
  3. Fighting addiction is difficult in a "normal" world, but what about now? How has your mission changed? How have you shifted gears since the pandemic began?
  4. For those who are maybe struggling right now and want to seek treatment, what is the first step they should take? What is your advice to them and/or their loved ones?
  5. If you could give our listeners three pieces of advice and/or recommendations, what would they be?
  6. What have you learned about yourself and/or your colleagues during this time?

TIP: A physician’s skills and knowledge will always be needed, but medicine is rapidly changing like many other industries. Providers cannot rest on their experience and credentials and allow their ego to demand patients be the only ones to change. Cutting edge is no longer just knowledge and new protocols or techniques; it is flexibility in how patients can access you, and understanding how patients and the world have changed leading to reinvention and innovation of the modern medical practice.


Dr. David Kushner is the Medical Director at BRIGHTSIDE Clinic where he has treated hundreds of patients with Opioid Use Disorder. Board-certified in Addiction Medicine, Dr. Kushner is known for his cutting edge, patient-centered, collaborative approach in addressing this challenging, yet treatable condition. Dr. Kushner received his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University, a medical degree from Midwestern University and is a graduate of the Advocate Lutheran General Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program.
