In May 2019, Dr. @rschilsky & I co-chaired the #AAADV19 Workshop Plenary Session "Decentralized #ClinicalTrials: The Future is Now." An incredible group of panelists from academia, industry, govt, & patient #advocacy 👇discussed the rationale, challenges, & opportunities of DCTs. Image

We have now moved into committee! SB23-111 is for #worker protections & makes sure that public employees can engage in the political process like everyone else

Public employees are nurses, teachers, public service workers & EMT drivers #copolitics

YES ON SB23-111 👨‍⚕️
The right to strike for public employees is only possible after presenting to a board - there is not a avenue for public employees to #unionize or #organize if they think they need too

We are now hearing from a Nurse who tells us 'this impacts you all cause you seek health care'
We have testimony from @DenverHealthMed worker - who says "you do not need a heart beat in a seat, you need a capable health care worker when you are seeking health care"

"we need to level the playing field between our bosses & unions" #copolitics

YES on SB23-111 🔥

We are so PUMPED to be back at House Judiciary committee to hear HB23-1187 Alternative Sentencing for Pregnant People #copolitics

HB23-1187 will ensure that #pregnant people have the opportunity to #alternative sentencing 🔥

@S2SSisters @elephant_circle
We know that pregnancy is contraindicated towards a #healthy pregnancy & being incarcerated while pregnant is harmful to both the pregnant person and the child - #reproductivejustice is what we are fighting for today #copolitics @elephant_circle @S2SSisters
Correctional facilities are not mandated to track or report pregnancy-related data & most facilities do not have any routine process for collecting such information - another reason why we are saying YES on HB23-1187 #copolitics #leadership #reproductivehealth

Data & transparency is vital #copolitics #recidivism
Tune into this hearing:…

@SenBobGardner is asking about the bill & whether there are competitors for the pilot project that ultimately SB23-067 would create - a study & program enhancement to reduce #recidivism
@ColemanforCO responds with "this will allow the program to be scaled across the facility, and creates opportunities to scale across the department." #copolitics Coleman has been a champion for Criminal justice reform #leadership

Here at #FairWorkweek hearing with sponsors starting us off strong - @SerenaForCO explains that single parents & working parents are left with a CPS call when they don't have predictable work schedules to pick their kids up

Unstable schedules impact 400k Coloradans #copolitics
@SerenaForCO reminds us corporate lobbyists are out numbering us.

@EmilyForCO "We are here today to address unpredictable hours... which means unpredictable pay... 1/3rd of workers in Colorado who are in the most impacted sectors - couldn't cover an emergency" #copolitics
"we continue to create communities where workers can thrive... studies show that fair scheduling builds trust for employees and employers" #copolitics

"workers who have a say in their schedule are more productive" says @EmilyForCO

If you aren't tuning in yet to @VigilForHD16 introducing a phenomenal bill at #colorado #legislativesession ✨HB23-1101 - Ozone Season Transit Grant Program Flexibility ✨ #CleanAir #publictransit #ClimateJustice is important

@baconforco discusses the bill as well - who represents D7, and how much transit has mattered to #students #youngpeople and #workingparents and how much #CleanAir matters to her constituents #copolitics

Follow the bill!🔥
@VigilForHD16 gives us a lesson on group level o-zone - "which is a combination of heat and toxins, and they mostly come from oil and gas operations - and then transportation is the next big one" #copolitics

Fantastic point Rep. #ClimateJustice

A guide to being a #folkreporter with @BlackByGodWV - a 🧵:
Good ole fashion #folkreporting is done by YOU the citizen. Witnessing is one of the most important things we as citizens can do to keep our elected officials and community accountable. 1/
When forming a thread on what you are witnessing, it is important to tag the elected officials you are covering when ever that is an option. Including relevant hashtags is also important. If you are at a #countycommission meeting let folx know! Tag your municipalities as well. 2/
Let people know you are a folk reporter! Include the following at the begining of your thread:

Let's talk about employee advocacy.
Shall we

Thread on Employee Advocacy

1. As PR professionals, it's our job to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to industry trends &shifts. One trend that's increasingly important for us to pay attention to is the rise of employee advocacy
2. By empowering our clients' employees to share their stories and experiences, we can create a more authentic and engaging narrative for our brands. But how do we do this effectively?
3. One key is to focus on employee training and education. This means providing employees with the tools and resources they need to effectively communicate on behalf of the company, whether it's through social media, blog posts, or other channels.

This mornings rant is about #paidfamilyleave in Colorado & how #voters overwhelmingly passed FAMLI

[& employers can now register for CO’s new program finally; employees max 12 weeks of paid leave a yr + 4 additional wks for #pregnancy or #childbirth complications]

Let’s get 1st thing straight - this 🧵 is no insight into the near 15 yrs #advocates fought for #paidfamilyleave at the CO state Capitol before #voters passed it on the #ballot

I, like many folks - came into the advocacy for #FAMLI yrs after lots of fight. Grateful to have it
Many of us worked on the #ballotmeasure in 2020 & #voters approved the program by 57% of the vote ✨ the amount of barriers set in place to #advocate for #paidfamilyleave & #pass it & then #implement it - have been eye opening 👁 to say the least. #copilitics

It was awesome to give a presentation w/ my friends at the reciprocity collective {who do outreach w/ #unhoused folks in #denver} to a students from ⁦@DePaulU⁩ on #policy #advocacy & what it can look like when you center #communitypower #copolitics@ProgressNowCO
There’s a beautiful thing that happens when we build policy with people most impacted, & leaders who understand social determinants of health, & students, & direct service providers. #copolitics #denverliving shout out to Amanda Orta - who runs programming for COVIVO #policy
Chicago has very similar niche #housing issues as #Denver - a group of parents from south side built policy development w/ #workingparents in Denver last yr - we convened it, it’s awesome to see parents & young ppl advocating for complex housing issues. In their communities.

Learned so much in this evening's @AACI_Cancer@ webinar on physician use of social media! Dr. @fumikochino highlighted sev successful research collaborations that began via #SoMe & said that Twitter has helped a lot with the "hustle" all #MedTwitter junior faculty face.
Dr. @SyedAAhmad5, who began tweeting during the #pandemic, highlighted opportunities to expand reach of #MedEd via #SoMe. For example, he taught this to #MedStudentTwitter, then realized there was no reason the learning needed to be confined to his operating room. cc @AACI_Cancer
Drs. @Jasosamd, @fumikochino, & @SyedAAhmad5 provided examples of using #SoMe to inform #MedTwitter, #SurgTwitter, & the pt #advocacy community about one's own research, as well as to promote the work of colleagues, esp mentees.

2/4: “#Governance only works if there’s willingness from both sides. There has to be willingness to include young people & young people need to be willing to take part in the conversations & contribute to the the #politicalinfrastructure.”

Joshua Amponsem, Founder, @gayoghana
3/4: “It’s time to reimagine what young people’s engagement looks. Very often they’re #tokenized & boxed into the framework of #protesting even when they have #creativesolutions to offer.”

Part 2 of ACP-Medicine Forward series on solutions to #FixPriorAuth happening now w/ amazing lineup! @gabrieldane, co-founder w/ @EricTopol of @MedicineForward, kicks off the mtg w/ comments about urgency of #MedTwitter #advocacy & activism to protect dr-patient relationship.
Dr. @ShikhaJainMD is orienting audience to the amt of time #MedTwitter spends doing prior auth & peer-to-peer calls, in many cases w/ insurance company "peers" w/ no training in the specialty. Some could not even pronounce the tumor type or drug name. #DenialOfCare #FixPriorAuth
Dr. @ShikhaJainMD says that she cares for a patient with #cancer whose insurance company only allow 4 CT scans LIFETIME for their #cancer, which prevents her from assessing how well the treatment is working. This is absurd & MUST be fixed. #DenialOfCare #FixPriorAuth #MedTwitter

La #comunità? C'est moi. Il limite del #terzosettore nel pensarsi come solo interprete delle dinamiche sociali territoriali (anche per mancanza di strumenti di lettura e azione). Inizia col botto la sessione di lavoro di @progetto_fqts
1/di non so quanti: molte, più che #comunità, sono partenariati di progetto "artificiali" per intercettare risorse top down. Filantropiche soprattutto. E su questo bisognerebbe interrogarsi: è possibile un "salto di stato" da rete a comunità? #comunitàdovesei
2/di non so quanti: s'invoca la capacità di #mediazione come via principale per il "ritorno alla #comunità" da parte del #terzosettore. Ma con la sola mediazione, soprattutto in contesti deprivati, non si va da molte parti #comunitàdovesei

After today's meeting marathon, interviews on the Scholz speech & email galore, I guess it's back to business in Brussels!
This GIF shows how it feels to work on EU politics at the moment, but I'm looking forward to working on a bunch of great projects in the coming months. 👇/1
Very much looking forward to welcoming @ThinkTank_Lab in Brussels next week - besides giving a short input on "how to EU policy analysis", my colleague @FilipeALampe is organising an event on #diversity in EU policymaking with @CnctingEurope that I think is hugely important. /2
The @epc_eu also partnered up for the 'European Think Tank Conference' in October in Berlin to promote the exchange between European think tankers and discuss sector-specific issues. Stay tuned for a great programme! @dgapev… /3

Thank u @Heart_SCCT @jolson106

Was an honor serving on #ASM committee #SCCT2022 & congrats @ghoshhajra for leading this team

My takeaways:
1) #ISCHEMIA captured current landscape of functional testing & put anatomy vs ischemia discussions in the center…
2) We learned from those excluded from the trial as much as we did from those included #CIAO-ISCHEMIA

3) #DISCHARGE trial will make way for cathlabs to focus on complex procedures as #YesCCT assumes most diagnostic evaluations…

#Advocacy thread.
A key recommendation in the @reviewCSC is for there to be independent, opt-out advocacy.
Implementation of this would be globally ground-breaking and a vg safeguard for children's rights.
#CareReview 🧵 Image
It is confusing, difficult and sometimes traumatic entering care. An #independentadvocate is there to be on the child's side. It is someone to represent their needs and wishes so that they are central in making and reviewing care plans.
Running @whocaresscot I saw firsthand how advocacy was a life-line for people in the most vulnerable situations. It gave them hope and built trust when they saw they were heard.
Having a voice over decisions that affect you is a cornerstone of children's rights.

"Retha is a remarkable person who saw a need and moved forward to fill that need. After becoming ill with #MECFS she formed a Facebook support group in 2012." #fundraising…
"She became aware of the dire needs of patients for hope, companionship, financial assistance, medical treatment, special care facilities, and basic living necessities. She realized something had to be done for #MECFS in #SouthAfrica and founded The @mecfs_sa"
"The Foundation provides #healthcare and counselling services for people with #MECFS who cannot afford it; raises awareness of ME/CFS, and #advocates for the rights and interests of people with ME/CFS." #imhopeful

I’ve been contacted 2x just this wk—1 IRL acquaintance & 1 person I know only via Twitter—after they got imaging results in portal before their dr. They DM’d w/ screenshots, panicked, asking for help. I’m 💯 for pt access to #EHR, but #CuresAct implementation needs a MAJOR reboot
Whenever I have expressed concern about #CuresAct, #advocacy often tells me it’s still better. But it def was not better for these folks, nor for me dropping everything to help ppl who aren’t my pts, whose records I lack, & whose drs I don’t even know, i.e., it’s bad care. 😔
And I’m always happy to help patients, genuinely. I actually started using Twitter to be able to report out from #SABCS17 (I think) for #advocacy. But I don’t like providing bad medical care, & this is a set-up for doing so. We need a systems fix so pts aren’t left hanging…

The Medicare DIS-Advantage Plans...
Many seniors are being lured into Medicare Advantage Plans due to the added benefits of hearing, dental, and gym membership coverage. Image
These plans are actually run by private insurers and actually quite profitable for insurance companies with profit margins of 5% or greater (industry average is 4%)…
Further these plans have the added problems of:
1) Narrow Networks - in fact, many of the most prestigious cancer centers in the country are excluded from these plans. Oddly enough 60% of Cancer diagnoses are in Medicare aged individuals...…
