Ep.1470: The Journey of Grief and Ep.1471: Healthcare Business
June 15, 2022
Hosted by Kathryn Zox
Kathryn interviews Author Mary Lamia PhD. Combining psychological insights with numerous case examples from her decades of work with grieving clients Mary Lamia PhD illustrates how loved ones who have died are always alive within us—regardless of spiritual beliefs. For Lamia, this book has become a deeply personal journey. She lost her mother at the age of 11, her father just 10 years later and, sadly, her husband of 44 years in 2021 just as she was completing this book. Although she agrees that it may be awkward to talk about the loss of a loved one—at least in the culture we live in—she illustrates that "Grief has a rich meaning.” She educates the public about the psychology of human behavior by blogging for Psychology Today, Thrive Global, and Psychwire. For nearly a decade, she hosted a weekly call-in talk show, KidTalk with Dr. Mary, on Radio Disney stations.Kathryn also interviews Author Dr. David Wilcox. After 28 years in the health care business, Dr. David Wilcox has seen enough to realize that it truly is a “business,” as opposed to the kind-hearted healing service that most of us might imagine it to be. In his own words, he explores “what to do if you have to go to a hospital, how to handle an insurance company’s claim denial, how to find an alternative to high-priced prescriptions and why the current pay-for-fee system is inadequate. He offers information, facts and tips that can help patients and family members navigate through the morass. His goal is to level the playing field, enabling consumers of health care to understand how to avoid getting caught in the systemic net. Dr. Wilcox has nearly three decades of healthcare experience as an ICU nurse, transplant nurse, hospital administrator and in health care information technology.
