Most of us been thinking and communicating health information for our entire adult lives. Some of us (including me) since before our brain was fully developed.

We’d like to think that we’re doing a good job of conveying information to everyone else who hasn’t had the depth of learning we have. I’m sure a lot of the time we do a really good job, BUT can we actually be sure?

Jasmine Marcus is a journalist turned physical therapist who still remembers living life as an adult without knowing this stuff. She couples this with her communication expertise as a journalist and joins me on the podcast this week.

We talk through

  • Understanding what it’s like to be an adult not working in the health industry
  • The challenges of not having something tangible to show for your work
  • The value of recording and acknowledging your wins
  • That it’s normal to question our abilities
  • Glorifying our ego by oversharing what we notice is “abnormal”
  • Why we should normalize “abnormal” findings
  • How to shift the direction of dominant narratives
  • Why you should question what you take for granted
  • Trying to make yourself more skeptical
  • How to challenge nocebo effects
  • The power of celery water
  • Why you should consume professional education on social media
