Health And Medicine airing this week

Researchers are using wearable cameras and location-tracking devices to observe how people behave in real life. They look at how daily behavior patterns relate to health. Some of the participants are not worried about the information captured by these wearable devices, some are. While there is an ethical framework to protect participants the challenge is how to share accumulated data with other scientists. How can we balance protecting participant privacy and advancing scientific methods, which require outsiders to repeat our analyses?

Dr. Gurpreet Dhaliwal is a Professor of Medicine at UCSF and is generally considered one of the most skillful diagnosticians in the United States. He teaches medical students and residents in the ER, inpatient wards and outpatient clinic at the San Francisco VA Medical Center. He studies how doctors think, how they diagnose, how they make treatment decisions and how they develop expertise. He has published over ninety articles in leading medical journals including the New England Journal of Medicine and JAMA. Dr. Dhaliwal writes for The Wall Street Journal's "The Experts" series, and, in 2012, he was profiled in The New York Times.

Dr. Chambers is a professor of pediatrics at University of California, San Diego and Director of Clinical Research for the Department of Pediatrics at UCSD and Rady Children's Hospital. She is a perinatal epidemiologist, whose research is focused on environmental exposures in pregnancy and child health outcomes, including birth defects. In this talk she explores the need for better data on medication safety for pregnancy and breast-feeding. Recorded on 11/6/2018.

Cancer becomes highly dangerous when it spreads from its original site to a different vital organ. These secondary tumors called metastases are what kill most patients. Despite hundreds of years of research, it is not understood why, where, and how cancer spreads to organs like the brain. Lawrence Livermore Lab scientist describes how they bring together cancer biology, 3D printing and material science, to understand and hopefully prevent metastases in the future. Recorded on 02/16/2019.

National health policy expert Drew Altman presents an analysis of the public's priorities and opinions in health care as the new Congress takes shape and the 2020 presidential campaign begins. Recorded on 01/23/2019.

Diabetes educator Theresa Garnero walks you through the 8 keys to living a healthy life with diabetes: Healthy eating, being active, taking medication, monitoring, healthy coping, reducing risks, problem solving and adding humor. Recorded on 03/20/2019.

Dr. Geroges Naasan explores the principal clinical syndromes of Alzheimer's Disease: memory, visual, language and frontal/executive. He also discusses neuropathology, genetic factors and modern biomarkers with colleagues from the UCSF Memory and Aging Center. Recorded on 04/30/2019.

Dr. Julio Rojas-Martinez discusses the pharmacological treatment of Alzheimer's disease now and what is in development. Current approaches pursue early intervention in the dementia phase. Novel emerging strategies will likely accompany anti-amyloid and anti-tau approaches in the future. Then Sarah Dulaney, RN, describe dementia education, support, and non-pharmacological treatment strategies.
Recorded on 05/14/2019.

National and UCSF leaders discuss reproductive health and justice and the response to increasingly extreme abortion restrictions sweeping the country. This panel focuses on the role of an academic medical center in a haven state. Recorded on 06/06/2019.

Stem Cell research could unlock the mystery of what makes the human brain special. Researcher Alysson Muotri is using stem cells to grow tiny versions of developing human brains in his lab to study everything from autism to the Zika virus. His lab is even looking into how space flight impacts brain development.

Cancer therapies may be making huge advances, but a cancer diagnosis is still, for many, a major emotional blow and can turn their lives upside down. We talk to young patients and an oncologist about living with the disease.
