Women of Distinction Magazine Selects Sandy Duckett as a Distinguished Professional in Her Field

Sandy Duckett will be featured in the upcoming edition of the Women of Distinction Magazine in 2016.

STURGEON BAY, WI, February 06, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — Sandy Duckett, Chief Executive Officer of We Are HOPE, Inc., has been recognized as a Distinguished Professional in her field through Women of Distinction Magazine. Sandy Duckett will be featured in the upcoming edition of the Women of Distinction Magazine in 2016.

Chief Executive Officer of We Are HOPE, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to Helping Others Prosper and Excel, Sandy Duckett and her team manages one of the Wisconsin’s Job Center, while providing career guidance and employment services to clients and businesses seeking to fill vacant positions.

“In my role, I work to identify problems and create solutions,” Duckett said. “My tasks and functions vary from day to day, but the ultimate goal is for improvements to the organization to better serve the clients as well as the economy. Today, many people are making uninformed decisions about college and post-secondary education and yet still cannot find meaningful work upon college graduation. College debt is a growing concern and it is negatively impacting all industries. We look for the root cause of a problem and then look for a solution. Unfortunately, college debt is hindering the ability for individuals and families to invest in their future and it seems to be the main reason we have seen slow economic growth since the recession. If people are struggling in paying off student loans, they are not investing in their future or starting their lives.”

One of the biggest projects currently underway at We Are HOPE, Inc. includes delivering their Be Smart About Education program. The program fills a void to help individuals make informed decisions about college, provide career guidance so individuals are ready for the job market upon graduation, and help reduce college debt.

Founded in 1978 as the Women’s Employment Project with a grant from the US Department of Labor to create diverse employment opportunities for women, We Are HOPE, Inc. has since evolved to meet the needs of the entire district. Providing employment and home energy services to individuals and families in need in Door and Kewaunee counties, We Are HOPE, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.

“I enjoy working to improve the economy. Management experience in a number of fields that I’ve worked in allowed me to do so through various efforts. I’ve also been involved in several organizations, both public and private, that have enabled me to manage educational programs and economic activities that have helped to improve the overall economy, which has been very rewarding,” Duckett explained about the direction of her career.

Duckett served for 11 years as the Chief Operation Officer of a College Foundation and was the Vice-President of College Advancement at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College where she helped identify new markets and provided hundreds of thousands of scholarship dollars to students. She is the former Director of Economic Development for City of Green Bay, a title she held for three years. She also worked with various industry sectors to expand the economy and grow jobs in the area.

In 2004, Duckett participated in the Oxford Roundtable where she studied with 30 other world educational leaders on ‘How to Finance Education in the Future’. Her background in economic and educations stems from her Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Silver Lake College and her Master’s Degree in Organizational Behavior from Silver Lake College. She is also one of 60 people in the United States certified in Downtown and Community Development. The recipient of numerous awards from Governors for Economic Development programs, Duckett has worked with many educational professionals from PK through age 20 and understands the funding make up of various secondary and post-secondary educational institutions.

A new segment will discuss some simple steps to fire prevention…

MIAMI, FL, February 06, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — Fire is a problem that impacts many lives each year. When a fire occurs in a home or business, it causes damages and can contribute to the risk of injury. By understanding fire prevention strategies, individuals reduce the risk of facing a fire and have the knowledge to point out risks at work or when visiting a business.

Fire prevention refers to the strategies that individuals take to prevent and avoid the risk of fires. A key factor is taking measures to ensure that the house or building has fire extinguishers available to put out small fires before they spread. For example, keeping an extinguisher in the kitchen reduces the risk of the fire spreading to other areas of the house. Consumers may also want to know about different ways to reduce the risk of starting a fire or limiting the risk of certain types of fires in the home.

James Earl Jones will host a new segment that will discuss fire prevention strategies and options on “Voices in America.” During the segment, viewers will learn about ways people can reduce the risk of a fire and strategies to ensure that individuals are safe if a fire occurs. Those who see the segment will discover where to place fire alarms in the home as well as effective escape strategies when a fire occurs.

Pan Atlantic Share 4 Tips For Improving Communication That Actually Get Results

Skillful communication is paramount in business, so Pan Atlantic have shared their top tips to help fellow businesses implement effective communication channels.

NEW YORK, NY, February 05, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Holmes Report (Forbes, 2016) demonstrates that companies with effective communication strategies have 47% higher returns to shareholders, more engaged employees, and less employee turnover. Pan Atlantic are also hardly surprised that an estimated $37 billion was lost due to employee misunderstanding or errors that can be traced due to poor communication.

About Pan Atlantic: http://panatlanticinc.com/about-us/

In today’s digital age, communication can be easily implemented in several formats, but it’s also important to retain the ability to verbally communicate as well. Pan Atlantic believes standalone communication channels need to be utilized in conjunction with skillful and tactful communication strategies from management, because effective communication can be the difference between a business succeeding or failing.

Here are Pan Atlantic’s 4 tips for improving communication in the workplace:

Lead by example

Pan Atlantic suggest that first-time business owners and budding entrepreneurs may not have developed a skill set that includes clear communication. The firm believes that experienced entrepreneurs understand how demonstrating great communication sets an example to staff, and strongly maintains that employing ‘open door’ policies are best to ensure all lines of communication remain wide open.

Stick to company mission / values

Sticking to a company mission statement is extremely important, as employees need to be able to understand the overarching goals in order to all sing from the same hymn sheet, as it were. Successful companies are able to align mission, culture, and brand to empower high performance and communication among individuals and teams. Pan Atlantic believes that through this strategic direction mission-driven leaders are able to foster employee engagement and enhance organizational performance, and subsequent business success. The firm advises publishing manifesto and best practice documentation online for reference purposes.

Avoid unnecessary meetings

Pan Atlantic acknowledges the importance of regular business meetings, but emphasize the importance of utilizing other communication tools to accomplish information dissemination without having to interrupt the workflow of staff. The agency believes that there are few things more frustrating at work than a pointless meeting, and not knowing when to draw the line is a widespread business liability and communicative malpractice.

Dismantle the hierarchy

Hierarchies are often responsible for communications jams, and Pan Atlantic instills greater belief in the communication methods administered in team structures. The firm argue that fostering a company culture in which teams are motivated to succeed together rather than individuals can only be beneficial for communication processes. Team structures are likely to incorporate less bottle-necked decision-making, and the accessible leadership that ensues encourages fluid communications leading to faster results and added adaptability (Forbes, 2016).

Pan Atlantic ensure effective communication with their clients and their customers at all times as, through these face-to-face marketing interactions, the firm are able to build lasting connections with consumers on behalf of their clients. In turn, these relationships help their clients to boost sales and expand into new markets and demographics

Pan Atlantic are specialists in offering innovative direct marketing solutions to businesses across the United States. The firm strongly believes that outsourcing remains one of the most cost-effective alternatives for businesses that are looking to make the most of their time and focus on business growth.

Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Offers A Diagnosed Person or Their Family a Checklist of Must Do Items Focused on Making Certain They Retain the Best Lawyers for Much Better Compensation

The Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center is now offering a person who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma a very informative checklist of key ingredients needed to ensure they hire the best lawyers for better mesothelioma compensation.

NEW YORK, NY, February 05, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “The best possible compensation for mesothelioma is directly related to the quality and the skill of the lawyers a diagnosed person or the family retain to advance a financial claim for this rare cancer. Before a diagnosed person in Florida, or their family retain the services of a law firm to assist with a mesothelioma claim please call us at 800-714-0303 so we can try to enlighten you as the kind of skill set your lawyers will need.”

“Most people with mesothelioma in Florida were in fact exposed to asbestos in the US Navy, or while working in the Northeast, or the Midwest.” http://Florida.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Checklist to ensure a person diagnosed with mesothelioma in Florida hires the most skilled and experienced lawyers from the Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center:
* Do the lawyers you are talking to have references from very satisfied families that are no more than six months old? These references should be able to verify the lawyers professionalism and the fact they went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to compensation for their client.
* Will the lawyer/lawyers you are talking to commit to be involved with the compensation claim from start to finish?
* How many years exclusively does the lawyer/lawyers you are talking to have in handling mesothelioma compensation claims for US Navy Veterans, or trades workers such as a welder, electrician, or plumber in Florida or nationwide?
* “If the lawyer, or lawyers you are talking to about mesothelioma compensation cannot properly answer these questions please call the Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 800-714-0303 for the names of lawyers who can answer all of these questions properly, and provide impeccable references.” http://Florida.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Aside from their focus on the best possible compensation the Center is also very passionate about treatment options for mesothelioma. For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Florida the Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital.

The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida: http://moffitt.org/

The Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center wants to emphasize there is a statewide initiative available to a diagnosed victim anywhere in Florida including communities such as Miami, Jacksonville, Tampa, Saint Petersburg, Orlando, Hialeah, Fort Lauderdale, Tallahassee, Port Saint Lucie, or Cape Coral. http://Florida.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos now living in Florida include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, miners, manufacturing workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists or construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control, the average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. This year between 2,500 and 3,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is attributable to exposure to asbestos.

The Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “Before you hire a law firm to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim please call us at 800-714-0303 and compare the qualifications of who we consider to be the nation’s most skilled mesothelioma attorneys to any other lawyer, or law firm.

“When it comes to obtaining the best mesothelioma compensation settlement, the quality of the attorney matters, as we would like to explain.” http://Florida.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Conference to Address Gaps in Primary Care for People with Rare Diseases

Rare Diseases, Common Medical Needs

RAMSEY, NJ, February 05, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — On June 9-10, Las Vegas will host RD1 degree: Optimizing Primary Care for Patients with Rare Diseases, a continuing medical education (CME) event presented by the Association for Comprehensive Care in Rare Diseases (ACCORD). This conference is the first of its kind–and a first for ACCORD, whose mission is to provide education, tools, and resources to primary care clinicians that will help them provide comprehensive care to patients with rare diseases.

Nearly 1 in 10 Americans, or 30 million people, live with a rare disease–and two-thirds of these patients are children. However, having a rare disease doesn’t make the person “rare,” and people with rare diseases have common medical needs, too. In fact, rare diseases are often discovered in the primary care setting, where patients continue to be seen for routine medical care throughout their lives. Despite primary care clinicians assuming responsibility for the management and care of these patients’ common needs, the majority of primary care clinicians do not receive any special training on how to administer or adjust routine care for their patients with rare diseases. ACCORD hopes RD1 degree will bring these issues to light, as well as raise the bar for the quality of primary care provided to this population.

Conference Chairperson, Dr Robert Saul of Greenville, South Carolina, notes: “Although each of these diseases is rare on its own, together they affect the lives of 30 million Americans. Clearly, primary care providers must be better prepared to help identify and care for these patients.”

A survey conducted by ACCORD confirms that many health care professionals (HCPs) are less than confident providing routine care for patients with rare diseases. To address this gap, the RD1 degree conference will endeavor to help clinicians:
– Understand why primary care is critical to the overall management of rare diseases
– Identify clinical clues that expedite diagnosis of rare diseases in different clinical settings
– Develop successful referral networks
– Locate resources for clinical practice
– Utilize tools and resources to manage the whole patient
– Optimize care for special populations (eg, pediatric and female patients)

Continuing medical education credits will be available to HCPs through the University of Cincinnati, Health and Wellness Education Partners, and the Global Academy for Medical Education.

More information about the RD1 degree conference and ACCORD can be found at www.ACCORDweb.org. HCPs who treat people with rare diseases can register for the conference at www.ACCORDCME.org.

About ACCORD

The Association for Comprehensive Care in Rare Diseases–or ACCORD–is a new ally in the rare disease community that focuses specifically on improving the quality of primary care for people living with rare diseases, by championing clinical and administrative best practices for managing these conditions, facilitating dialogue between primary care and specialty care providers, and equipping providers with tools and resources to address patients’ unmet needs.

ACCORD is committed to enhancing primary care for patients with rare diseases.

For more information on ACCORD, please visit www.ACCORDweb.org or email contact@ACCORDweb.org.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of Cincinnati, Health and Wellness Education Partners, and the Global Academy for Medical Education.

The University of Cincinnati is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Physicians | The University of Cincinnati designates this live activity for a maximum of 12 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credits commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Nurses | An application has been submitted for continuing education contact hours for nurses. Please contact meeting@ACCORDweb.org to obtain information regarding approval status.
