I often write and speak about health-related topics, but the subject of this podcast (link below) is different. Hosted by Wanda Wallace, PhD on her VoiceAmerica Show, Out of Your Comfort Zone, we delve into how to influence others, especially those in a position of power and how to sustain efforts that take a long time. This is probably the best interview I have ever given and might also be filed under “a love letter to my profession.”

Dr. Wallace’s has an inspired capacity to draw parallels across widely divergent subject areas and see the enduring common threads that lead to successful efforts and progress regardless of what you’re working on.

I shared extensively about “what is naturopathic medicine” and then strategies used in our long legislative effort to successfully license naturopathic doctors in the state of Massachussetts. A lot of great stories in this interview and Dr. Wallace is clear and able to summarize and synthesize on the spot! Super fun.

Here’s the link to our one hour conversation. Enjoy!
