MediPal Identification and Information system
This year I had the privilege of meeting a wonderful group of First Responders at a Southern California CERT conference. I was a presenter and after the seminar I was introduced to Kathryn Turner. She began to discuss helping people with communication or medical disorders during disasters and emergencies with an easy identification product that she developed. That is how I came to learn about MediPal, which is a personal ID system that wraps around a safety belt, backpack strap or baby bag.
Inside the holder that fastens with velcro is a lightweight form to place essential data – such as contact information, health history, communication preferences and even a photo.
My first thought was WOW this is great for parents to place on their child’s backpacks and belts when their loved one has unique challenges, such as Autism or deafness. It also would be so helpful for adult care facilities during outings. In all honesty, I could probably generate dozens of ways that MediPal could be helpful scores of people! (And although it is meant for people, how great would this be to have a variation for pets who are being transported).
Kathryn will be discussing MediPal, her inspiration for creating this really cool product and announce the contest winners – see below. Join us!

There is something about Craig Ramsay, celebrity fitness coach, that makes you want to laugh your way through your work-outs! Could it be that he is using techniques that are slightly irreverent? Or perhaps he has training modules and common sense health tips that make you want to laugh at yourself for ever trying those “quick fixes”. He now even makes available five minute workouts that are hysterical and yes… irreverently fabulous (but aren’t the most effective workouts ones that keep your attention!!) I first met Craig when he was a guest, along with my pal, Heather Frey of SmashFit on the RICKI LAKE SHOW. He impressed me on how caring and genuinely engaged he was with a future bride who truly wanted to become healthier as well as look great on her wedding day! Together she lost weight and learned to rethink food as fuel and not as emotional comfort. I loved it! It is because Craig makes FUN and FUNCTIONAL in his everyday lifestyle plans that inspired me to become “healthier” and also have him on a guest on the LOUISE SATTLER SHOW!

This Sunday, July 7th, marks my first show after a bit of a hiatus from the world of online radio. I am thrilled to be returning to the 411 VOICES radio network with the all new LOUISE SATTLER SHOW.
I consider this new format to be a “potpourri” of topics and guests. Each guest bringing their wisdom (and hopefully humor) to the segment. I must confess, I am a bit nervous starting back in radio… but, I am grateful to the people who said they would tune in live or download. (For live listeners simply go to the online radio show on Sunday evenings at 9pm Eastern / 6pm Pacific)
My first guest is Amy Shojai who I have admired via TWITTER for her work as an animal advocate and behaviorist. You have to LOVE someone who titles here website as follows.. AMY SHOJAI’S BLING, BITCHES and BLOOD – Pet-Centric, Writer-icity & Thrillers with BITE!
WHAT DOES ALL THAT MEAN?
Well, for starters Amy loves animals so much that she writes about them (including having a German Shepherd in her newest book, LOST AND FOUND). Her website is full of age advice , information and even a bit of entertainment! (Check out STRAYS THE MUSICAL) Seriously, Amy is multi-dimensional and fabulous! (Note: I loved how Lost and Found integrated a character with Autism)
