But before we jumped into that, Alicia and Scott, tell me a little bit more about yourselves. Alicia, let's start with you. Sure. So I am the bioplus marketing specialist and I've been with...

...the company just one year. I'm located in Beautiful Central Florida and I think my favorite part about living and working here in central Florida is the wonderful whether that we get most of the time. Hey, Kelsey, this is Scott Kathrine. I'm the regional clinical laison for bioplus. I've been with the company a little over a year. I live in South Carolina, but I cover the great states of Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina. Speaking of warm weather, we definitely get it down here in the south. I'm a big golfer. Don't everyone's play that much, but at least the weather allows me to hopefully get out about eleven months out of the year, so wouldn't be anywhere else. Yeah, that's amazing. I see we're already kind of developing a southern theme and you guys touched on bioplus. So why did you guys want to start this podcast? Bioplus is starting this podcast because we want to share the unique perspectives from all the roles inside the oncology setting. We really...

...feel that sharing our collective knowledge makes us all better. I really like that. Sharing collective knowledge makes us all better. What a phenomenal kind of mission statement. And you touched on bioplus just a little bit. But Scott, can you tell me a little bit more about bioplus, the sponsor of this podcast. Absolutely Kelcy bioplus specially pharmacy is one of the nation's largest independent especially Pharma season. Our goal, you know, is to serve the patient. I know realize that's abroad overarching goal, but encompassed within that is our ability to work with so many different folks in oncology and also a lot of different specialties. But you know, our goal is to get patients the best experience possible and getting their medications. You know, in oncology they tend to have a lot more worries, unfortunately, than just their medicine. So we looked a partner with a lot of our oncology groups work with the nurses and the financial counselors and social workers and the providers to make sure everything flows smooth and...

...quickly and health these folks get the medicines that they deserve. I love that and it seems like there's so many kind of moving parts that you guys are working with. So, as listeners are tuning in, what can they expect to hear from each episode? And at least a you're in marketing, Scott, you're a regional manager, so I'd love to hear from both of you at least sea. Why do you start. Sure. So each episode will feature an oncology staff practice member discussing topics such as identifying patient needs, communicating effectively with other members of their team, chemote therapy practices, research for clinical trials, surgery best practices, how to counsel patients and their families and so much more. Yeah, to pit to piggyback off that. Oncollege is so unique Kelsey in its scope because there's so many different folks that have unique roles within the office, but they collectively have an all hands on deck approach to patient care. So that's why we feel like, you know, everybody really...

...has a great story to tell. I think they have the opportunity to share maybe some best practices, give some helpful hints or tips. So we feel like we want to keep this community connected because there's so many folks that do play such critical, critical roles in patient care within oncology and we just want to stay connected to everybody. Connectedness and partnering are all just really wonderful things to hear and I think that you guys will definitely be able to kind of like spread your reach and bring everyone together truly by this podcast.
