Bayer Leadership U

Discover the Brand New LivingWithHemophilia.com!

I made a pledge this year to get all of LA Kelley Communications’ books updated and back in circulation, because I love educating people about hemophilia. And information needs to be updated in this ever-changing bleeding disorder community. Please check out Bayer’s newly revised website LivingwithHemophilia.com to learn more about hemophilia and to learn about its highly effective and successful leadership program, Leadership U.

Discover the Brand New LivingWithHemophilia.com!

There is no community quite like the hemophilia community—which is why Bayer set out to create an online destination unlike any other.

Introducing the all-new LivingWithHemophilia.com, reinvented and reimagined to engage patients and caregivers like never before. This is where you’ll get the scoop on everything from the role of genetics, to information on pain management, to tips for traveling—and all things in between—with content that’s engaging, easy-to-find and relevant to you.

It’s the real talk you want, served up the way you want it. For example, the “Living With Hemophilia On Your Own Terms” video series is designed to help you understand often confusing terminology related to hemophilia—so you can feel more informed than ever.

LivingWithHemophilia.com is also home for information on Bayer Leadership U, the summer internship program for college-aged students touched by hemophilia. For more than a decade, Bayer has offered motivated, young individuals a paid, six-week internship at their U.S. headquarters in New Jersey. Leadership U interns participate in activities that sharpen leadership skills and apply these skills in a real-world corporate setting through a variety of independent projects.

For more information on the internship program, visit www.LivingWithHemophilia.com/lead. The application deadline has been extended and will be open until Wednesday, February 15, 2017.

So, that’s the story behind the all-new LivingWithHemophilia.com. Make sure you check it out!

Hey You! Leadership U

Now this is a great program, and one I had some input into many years ago!
Bayer’s Leadership U is a six-week, paid summer internship program starting in June for certain qualified young people with hemophilia. Applications are due Friday, February 12, 2016 and interns will be selected by Friday, March 18, 2016. All housing, travel and related activities will be organized and underwritten by Bayer. I mean, does it get any better? 

Selected interns will:
·        Engage in leadership training and
hands-on business projects
·        Learn how to support the hemophilia
community as a potential future leader
·        Participate in formal training on
communication skills, effective problem solving and leadership
·        Spend time with mentors within
Bayer to gain insights into the inner workings of the various corporate
departments — emphasizing the importance of collaboration
·        Collaborate with local hemophilia
organizations and learn about efforts to support the hemophilia community and partnerships
with business professionals
·        Be responsible for developing a
project that will be presented to Bayer senior management

The program also includes a meeting with healthcare public policy professionals
in Washington D.C., a community advocacy-focused visit to the National
Hemophilia Foundation in New York City, and activities with Bayer’s partners. Incredible.

This is a unique and powerful program that will teach you a tremendous amount of business, nonprofit and advocacy skills. Apply today!

Great Book I Just Read

The Night of the Grizzlies [Kindle]
Jack Olsen

Master true-crime storyteller Olsen recounts the true tale of a bizarre night in 1967 at Glacier National Park, when a perfect storm of humans, bears, lax policies, and inexperienced rangers came together after grizzlies attacked two 19-year-old girls in one night in separate attacks. Why did they attack? What did the humans do wrong? How did the campers and rangers react after the attacks? It was a wake up call from hell, as those involved realized that just because grizzlies had not attacked a human in 57 years, they are still wild and unpredictable. Edge of the seat thriller, page turner. It is heart-wrenching, sad but powerful. I’m now an official Jack Olsen fan. Four/five stars.
