    What does it take to build a positive corporate culture?

    THE key to corporate culture is leadership. You don’t so much “create” a corporate culture; your corporate culture, positive or otherwise, is the result of the choices every leader at every level makes every day. This takes commitment, especially during challenging circumstances when stockholders may not share the same values.

    Should dietitians patrol Kroger’s supermarket aisles?

    I do not doubt the validity of Kroger's findings, nor their good intentions to provide consumers with reliable nutritional counseling. But it should be voluntary. It seems to me that this is another example of trying to make someone else responsible for decisions and choices that we make. Do we really believe that consumers are ignorant of basic nutritional choices? That they don't know that fruits and vegetables are better than chips and soda? Educate and inform to the best of your ability but, at the end of the day, this is still America and people have the freedom to choose - even if you don't agree with their choices. And to be responsible for the consequences themselves.

    Jury says CVS, Walgreens and Walmart bear responsibility for opioid epidemic

    The system, beginning at the recovery room, is broken. As the advocate for my father, I witnessed the "no pain is good" approach to recovery for everything from outpatient procedures to bypass surgery. Dad's recovery and ICU nurses were constantly offering him opioids for any post-op pain - much of which he refused because he was experienced. And, upon release from the hospital, he was always issued an opioid prescription to make sure he wouldn't have any pain at home. He never had these prescriptions filled, but there are countless patients who would follow doctor's orders because the doctor must know what he/she is doing, right? And, before you know it, they are dependent.
