Opening up the program today was Dr. Panos Vasiloudes, MD, PhD.  Dr. V as he prefers to be called holds a dual board certification in dermatology and pediatrics. Dr. Vasiloudes obtained his PhD in the area of cell and molecular biology and is a native of Cyprus where he attended medical school at the Philipps University in Marburg, Germany and obtained his degree in 1987. Subsequently, he performed research at the renowned Rockefeller University in New York and Philipps University in Marburg, before completing his training in Europe at the University of Freiburg. Dr. Vasiloudes was awarded his PhD summa cum laude in 1989, after publishing his research in numerous peer-reviewed publications. He completed an accredited pediatric residency at Hahnemann University Hospital, Philadelphia in 1993 and a second accredited residency in dermatology at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Denver in 1998. Dr. Vasiloudes is board certified by the American Board of Dermatology and the American Board of Pediatrics.  Dr. Vasiloudes and Jamie discussed some need to know information on melanoma including the warning signs and Dr. V elaborates on his own screening method that he uses in his office.  He touches on the myths of sun tanning and how it does not protect against melanomas and we wrap up with a discussion on hair loss, another area he covers in his dermatological practice.  He, along with a partner, have developed a cream that when applied at night will result in the re-growth of hair over the course of a few months with near 100% success rate (to some degree).  This cream and procedure is unique to his practice so to take advantage of it, you will need to visit one of his locations.  Find him online at or give his office a call at 813-879-6040 today!

At 7:30, Regular Contributor Dr. Chris Pittman joined the #MorningDiscussion.  Dr. Pittman has appeared a number of times and has made Jamie a near expert in the field of vein disease.  Dr. Pittman and Jamie discussed the area of women’s health and how it applies and / or is affected by vein disease.  A condition not discussed before that is often overlooked by Gynecologists related to vein disorders is pelvic congestion syndrome.  Because it is not common and symptoms often send women to the OBGyn, many gynecologists do not recognize this as a possible cause of the symptoms so Dr. Pittman works to educate Medical Professionals in the field as to this possible cause.  Jamie and The Doc also touch on cosmetic issues associated with vein disorders including cherry angiomas which are the little red dots that everyone gets over time and he can eliminate them quickly and easily through the use of the VeinGo Machine as well as how he and his staff tackle other issues such as spider veins and unsightly hand veins.  Important to remember though is all treatments begin with a medical assessment before treating issues as simply cosmetic and the intake process of his practice is oftentimes covered by insurance.  Dr. Pittman invites you into his office for a free consultation and you can reach them at 855-Vein-911 or online at!

At 8am it was #WorkingWomenWednesday and we discussed the upcoming Working Women State Conference with Jessica Rivelli during the first segment.  We also discussed member benefits of the Working Women group including their regular “coffee connections” that she has been holding across the Bay area for the past 5 years and how they serve as excellent networking opportunities for professional women.  Members are not required to own a business and any woman with a job can be granted entry into membership.  There are base and VIP levels of members and more can be learned at and get tickets for the conference at!

Our guest for the remainder of the program was Natalie Kass, a graduate research assistant at the University of South Florida.  Natalie is pursuing her master’s degree in Rhetoric and Composition at the University of South Florida, where she has worked with the educational technology, My Reviewers, for the past two years.  The online platform, My Reviewers is a peer to peer software program that enables students and teacher to collaborate on research and papers and is unique to the University of South Florida now.  Natalie recently pitched the produce to 1 Million Cups where she received rave reviews and feedback and she and her partner hope to take it to other educational outlets.  Jamie and her discuss her entry into entrepreneurship which has arisen unexpectedly through her English program at USF and how millennials view entrepreneurship during the final segment.  Find out more about the platform at!
