Vaccinations on a Global Scale (16:16) Lacey Eden is an Assistant Teaching Professor in the College of Nursing at BYU and serves as the Chair of the Utah County Immunization Coalition. Lacey is also a nurse practitioner and sees patients in a pediatric practice where questions and concerns about immunizations are frequently addressed. She has spent time advocating for Shot@Life for global immunizations and is passionate about the subject. Going to the doctor and getting a shot is no one’s favorite thing, but vaccinations can potentially save lives. Some have concerns about vaccines and have decided to not allow their kids to be immunized. Lacey Eden talks about her work in advocating for global immunizations and discusses why people are so concerned about the safety of vaccinations. Makena Bauss - Too Much Emotional Intelligence (42:53) One of the more popular topics in business development and interpersonal relationship research is the importance of emotional intelligence. Producer Makena Bauss discusses how in some cases people are demonstrating too much emotional intelligence. Suicide Prevention (1:02:51) Dr. Jane Pearson is the chair of the NIMH Suicide Research Consortium at the National Institute of Mental Health in North Bethesda. She is also a neurologist in Birmingham, Alabama and is affiliated with St. Vincent's Birmingham. Suicide does not discriminate. People of all genders, ages, and ethnicities are at risk for suicide. This prevalent health problem is also one of the most preventable. Yet the numbers tell a different story: Each year twice as many Americans die from suicide than murder. It is currently the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. So how can we prevent it? Dr. Jane Pearson and Producer Caitlin Thomas help us become a little more informed on this topic, and to educate us on what we can do to help others, or even ourselves. Liana Tan - Hipsters (1:32:32) There are a lot of different labels for all different walks of people. Have you ever heard of a hipster? It’s a term that’s been thrown around a lot in recent years… but what does it even mean? Our producer, Liana Tan, will teach us a little more what hipsters are and how you can know if you are one.
