Opioid and substance use disorders were major issues before COVID-19 shook the world. And while everyone is at risk, those already struggling with substance abuse were thrown into a perfect storm. Experts have tragically observed that a year of isolation and social distancing due to the pandemic has aggravated the Opioid Crisis. In many ways, the stresses of the pandemic pushed people who may have been making progress with their opioid use disorder back toward substance dependency to cope with all that is happening.  In this episode, we're talking with Dr. Halena Gazelka, an anesthesiologist who serves on the Opioid Stewardship Program Subcommittee at the Mayo Clinic.  If you need help with an opioid or a substance use disorder, reach out to the Mayo Clinic at https://www.mayoclinic.org/.Connect with the Host - Raquel LamalWebsite I Facebook I Twitter I Instagram

You know that phrase, don't judge a book by its cover? That is exactly what we're talking about in this episode of Sole Source. Life is messy and a tornado of feelings can come out of the trauma we experience. Without being able to regulate those feelings, they can creep into our behavior that touches all aspects of our lives. It can be confusing to us and to those around us who may not know that our behavior has its roots somewhere else – our trauma. Jennifer Bartolotta, the owner of Bartolotta & Associates based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is teaching people about Trauma-Informed Care. This type of training can not only transform a workplace but can also help deescalate problems and prevent major catastrophes from happening.

Caring for a loved one with a critical or terminal illness often becomes the number one priority in a caregiver’s life. But what we end up seeing is those caregivers pushing aside their own physical and mental needs to focus entirely on providing that care. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says self-care is just as important, and we can all take steps to make sure caregivers feel supported and are not ignoring themselves by asking a simple question: How are you feeling right now? Tune into this episode, requested by a Sole Source listener, to learn different ways we can help the caregivers in our lives.Connect with the Host - Raquel LamalWebsite I Facebook I Twitter I InstagramBuzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!

COVID-19 is spreading within the Black and Brown communities at a much higher rate than other neighborhoods. What is the reason for this? How come people in these inner city areas are seeing higher rates of the disease, when the disease itself doesn't choose skin color?  The Mayo Clinic is working with churches in the Jacksonville, Florida area to help combat this issue. According to sources there, there are several factors that play a role in the spread of COVID-19 and why numbers are on the rise in these areas. By working together the medical community and the faith community believe they can bring this trajectory down.Listen to Dr. Ivan Porter, a clinician researcher with the Mayo Clinic and Reverend Dr. David Green Sr. of St. Stephen African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church of Jacksonville, Florida as they discuss the process they are taking and how other communities can do the same.If you would like to learn more about how COVID-19 is disproportionately impacting the Black and Brown communities in the U.S., check out the Mayo Clinic's Town Hall sessions here: https://www.mayo.edu/research/centers-programs/center-for-health-equity-community-engagement-research/events.Connect with the Host - Raquel LamalWebsite I Facebook I Twitter I InstagramBuzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!

We're all anxious for life to go back to "normal" whatever that will look like. The first step in that process is getting kids back to school, in-person, learning the way they traditionally learned. However, we are still in the midst of a global pandemic and waiting for vaccines to rollout to the general public.Still, many schools are bringing kids back in the new year to in-person classes. This can cause stress and anxiety for both parents and children, despite excitement about being back to class.Dr. Krystal Lewis from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) spoke with Sole Source in the fall about these stressors for parents and children, how to recognize them and how to cope with them. Now as kids prepare to go back to school in-person again following the holidays, we thought this would be a good podcast to rerun while we work to line up new guests for you all in 2021!Connect with the Host - Raquel LamalWebsite I Facebook I Twitter I InstagramBuzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!

This pandemic has forced many women to choose between career and caring for their families. It seems to be taking an unfair toll on women and according to one article, written in the Atlantic by Anne-Marie Slaughter, "Women still can't have it all." The article states that in order for women to have it all they must have a flexible profession. We posed this question to our followers in the Sole Source Society and many of you disagreed with the author.That brings us to our guest for this week's podcast, Beth Borgen, first female president at Lakeland University in its more than 100-year history. Beth is breaking the glass ceiling and shaking things up at the university with a fresh and female perspective and she says it's something she hopes to see other companies implement in the future.Connect with the Host - Raquel LamalWebsite I Facebook I Twitter I InstagramBuzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!
