From the monthly archives: July 2010

Professional Limbo. We all get there at some point. Between semesters/courses. Waiting to get hired after school. Transitioning from one job or position or city to another.

This week we tackle the kind of mindset and positive living choices you need to keep yourself in good physical, psychological, and professional help.

Expect a follow-up article with more of it broken down in writing, as well as an interview with none other than Jon Kellett of http://www.thebodytemple.ca , who has some VERY motivational messages and suggestions on the topic.

As usual, let us know what you think, leave us a voicemail, email, or tweet even, and we’ll try to read them on the show in the next episode!

Natalie and Jeremiah welcome special guest Sam Bradley to the show, and talk about their experience in San Francisco at the FIRESTORM Movie premiere.

FIRESTORM follows The Los Angeles City Fire Department undereducated population. The LAFD handles all emergency medical services for the city of Los Angeles, and currently 82% of the department’s work is medical, rather than fire-related. Eleven hospitals have closed in just five years in LA, and the challenge of delivering more than 500 patients per day to a shrinking number of hospitals is overwhelming to the LAFD. With resources strained, and 911 being used for everything from heart attacks to stomach aches, LAFD paramedics have become virtual “doctors in a box”.

Jeremiah has Worked in Los Angeels since 2006, and Sam for the first half of her career. They bring a local prospective to the discussion, contrasted by Natalie, and her experience in Louisiana.

In this episode Natalie and Jeremiah and special guest Scott Kier (@medicsbk) discuss their recent trip to NAEMT’s inaugural event: EMS on the Hill in Washington DC. They talk about the policies being pushed by EMS leaders and field medics alike and why they are relevant to all in the healthcare industry.

Exciting times, indeed.

Here it is!

As mentioned earlier in the week, Meris (@medic61) and Jared (@myrtlife), were able to attend EMS Today 2010 in Baltimore.

The experience was amazing! Amidst all of the great new products on the show floor, socializing with the coolest EMS tweeps, crab cakes, free swag, and much more, we had the opportunity to interview Justin Schorr, Mark Glencorse and Ted Setla about the Chronicles effect, social media versus face-to-face interaction, and how we believe EMS 2.0 will affect our generation.

Hey everyone!I know it’s been a while since we’ve posted, but we cranked out Episode 3: Part 1 in record time! This episode is the first in our two part series of GenMed: On the Road. Host Natalie Quebodeaux sat down with guest host, Jeremiah Bush (@Jeramedic) and talked about their experiences at the Chronicles of EMS premiere, what the Chronicles mean to our generation, our industry, and the healthcare system in general. Jeremiah and Nat discuss social media face-to-face and Nat even calls out the younger generation and tells them to step up and join ranks in EMS 2.0!

 

(a.k.a. “His name was Robert Paulson”)

Hey guys! We’re SO sorry about the delay on this one. On top of the technical glitches we had recording the show, some health and school issues decided to take their toll on just about every single one of the GenMed hosts, all at once.

Doesn’t matter though! We’ve got your episode! We’re talking about BODY MODIFICATION. What’s acceptable? What’s Taboo? Where is the line in the sand? How can we work constructively with our management/administration. This one’s going to definitely get “under some people’s skin”, I promise!
