Breast Cancer Update with Dr. Elisa Krill-Jackson

I’ve filmed this presentation at the Oncology Symposium 2019 in Hollywood, FL. It’s about advances in breast cancer treatments over the last year. Please excuse the audio quality, she was the first speaker of the day and we were still figuring things out so early in the morning.

Dr. Krill-Jackson is a practicing Hematologist & Oncologist in Miami Beach, FL. Dr. Krill-Jackson graduated from University of Michigan Medical School in 1990 and has been in practice for 28 years. She completed a residency at Brigham & Women’s Hospital.

Dr. Krill-Jackson also specializes in Internal Medicine and Oncology. She currently practices at Mount Sinai Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The Super Survivor YouTube Channel and Podcast

Great news everyone: I’ve just started a band new YouTube channel dedicated to this project. Although my main channel is thriving, I felt that the cancer related content deserves a dedicated place because it’s unrelated to 3D tutorials or tech reviews.

The new channel will feature lectures I’ve recorded as well as coverage of Karen’s Oncology Symposiums, featuring a wealth of information that deserves to be shared.

But that’s not all: while YouTube has the largest audience out of all services out there, it’s sometimes beneficial to listen to the information as it’s presented, be that on a walk in the park, a lengthy commute, or a boring flight. Hence, all content will be available as audio versions in the podcast feed.

You can subscribe to the service via these services, using your favorite podcast client:

This is part of a larger content reorganization strategy I’m currently working on, with more longer term projects coming into my life. I’ll talk more about this in an upcoming post.

2nd Annual Oncology Symposium 2019

I streamed this event live from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, back in April 2019. I totally forgot to put it on this site (like so many other things and videos that I’ve posted on YouTube already).

This was a one-day speaker event (including myself), about Empowering Professionals and Advancing Evidence-Based Strategies in Cancer Care.

My CT Scan – June 2019

In this episode I’m showing you my CT Scan I had at Pinnacle Imaging in June 2019 (so that’s two months before I’m making this video). I don’t know much about what’s in those images, but I’ll try my best to talk you through the interface and what those grey blobs (might) mean. Bottom line is: I’m healthy – that’s all that counts 🙂

Don’t Be Afraid To Suck

A reminder to all of us that making mistakes isn’t a bad thing at all, quite the opposite: it’s an opportunity for growth and to get better. Our endeavour to be “perfect” all the time and not make mistakes may well be the cause for limited growth.

Health and Tech Update

I’ve met a new primary doctor to make sure my hand isn’t getting any worse. Turns out she had the same oncologist as I did, and she’s a cancer survivor! Meanwhile, the results of my latest blood work are back, and I’ve got some news on how the next instalment of DAZ Studio 101 is coming along, plus some news on future streaming plans I have.

The live stream I’m talking about is on my other channel: Using dForce and Denoiser in DAZ Studio.

Hand Pain

I’ve noticed some increasing discomfort in my left hand, which I believe is caused by my day job. I’ve been shopping one too many grocery items it appears. To make sure this discomfort doesn’t escalate into something more serious, I’m trying an experiment to change my own behaviour and notice what I’m doing that might be causing this issue.

Goodbye, Google+

I’ve just heard that Google are “sunsetting” their Google+ services for all consumers. In this episode I reminisce about the ups and downs, and how important it is to let go of things that aren’t in-line with your own energy.

Twitch Expansion

In this episode I’m talking about thoughts on expanding my audience reach to Twitch. The company have recently expanded their repertoire to more non-gaming content, they have a big user base, their service is integrated into many streaming services – and they offer free video storage. Why not utilise it?

I’m still testing it out, but if you’re eager to embrace new services, join me for a casual live stream over here: https://twitch.tv/wpguru
