Becoming Dads: A Mission to Restore Absent Fathers - Marvin Charles and Jamie Bohnett
Most child advocates agree that fatherlessness goes beyond the boundaries of race and socio-economic status—and is the root of almost every social ill faced by children in our society. Children from fatherless homes are more likely to live in poverty, become involved in drugs, alcohol abuse, and crime, drop out of school, and suffer from health and emotional problems. Without any real, lasting intervention, this cycle continues and expands from generation to generation—unless an individual does what it takes to stop it.
Combining heart-wrenching realities with vital statistical information that graphically portrays the problem of fatherlessness in our society, Becoming DADS lays out practical strategies for restoring absentee fathers to their families and helping them develop the skills they need to be engaged and effective dads.

The Doctor Won’t See You Now - Scott Costin
A powerful tidal wave began to form almost 20 years ago when physicians and their employers began implementing policies to significantly reduce or eliminate communication between biopharma representatives and health care providers. At the same time, pharmaceutical and biologics employers were asking their field force to meet, connect with, and support health care providers whose patients might benefit from their therapies.
It was the perfect storm.
Since the genesis of this wave, impediments and limitations to access by health care delivery entities have increased unabated. Consequently, it appears the doors to health care customers are, for all intensive purposes, closed to biopharmaceutical representatives.
Or are they?
“. . .an unvarnished look at the challenges, roadblocks, risks, and rewards of a career in biopharma and, most importantly, the coaching and examples needed to be successful.” ~Kevin Madden, US Sales Manager, InHealth Technologies
