A recently-published study looked at the association between a perceived life purpose (using modified Ryff and Keyes Scales of Psychological Wellbeing) and mortality in individuals participating in the Health and Retirement Study (HRS). The results seem to indicate that a strong sense of purpose to one’s life is associated with decreased mortality. Join us as we discuss the implications of this study and how to apply it in practice to improve your patients’ health and wellbeing as well as your own.

Reading to young children is a well-established activity that can impact neuro-cognitive and emotional development in children. Since many parents use E-readers and other digital platforms to read to their kids, in this episode we will explore whether there is a difference or benefit to using a particular type of book. Join us as we discuss the recent findings on parent-toddler interactions when reading from a print book versus an E-reader.


This series of interactive cases will provide an opportunity for the learner to increase their knowledge in the management of people with type 2 diabetes on insulin therapy. The cases will illustrate expert guidelines and general strategies around use of insulin and combinations of injectables for type 2 diabetes, including a practical approach to the initiation and intensification of basal insulin. You will learn the advantages and disadvantages of combination injectable medications as well as how to use them safely and appropriately.

When patients with T2DM have difficulty controlling their glucose with standard approaches, or are newly diagnosed but severely hyperglycemic, insulin is commonly used to help control their metabolism. Using long acting, once a day agents is a standard of care but in the last 15 years, the costs of insulin has skyrocketed. During this episode we will review a study examining the effects of using Neutral Protamine Hagedorn Insulin (NPH) rather than once a day insulin on A1c control and risk for hypoglycemia and discuss their findings, which suggest NPH can be used with equivalent glycemic control and with no additional risk.

Antibiotics are frequently prescribed for upper respiratory infections, even when they are likely due to viral etiologies, or will resolve just as quickly without antibiotics. Many clinicians believe convincing patients they do not need to take an antibiotic is time consuming and frustrating for both parties. In fact, patients are often receptive to information on appropriate use, and the conversation can be done efficiently with practice.
