The One With Jane Sarasohn-Kahn

Today’s show is not a “very special episode” of Different Strokes, Facts of Life, Family Ties, Webster, or Blossom, BUT it is a “very special episode” nonetheless. Jane Sarasohn-Kahn has been a friend, a teacher, a mentor, a sherpa, a conscience, and a big sister to me for over 15 years. I mean it when I say she is as close to biological family as you can get without the Jerry Springer sibling DNA test. My origin story of becoming a cancer advocate diverged in 2004 between the nonprofit and the nascent and emerging digital health startup sectors. And Jane was right there to welcome me — the freshman newcomer and token “pre-advocate” cancer patient — equipped with the inflatable swimmies I needed to incubate in that space. Did I mention she is one of the world’s foremost health economists with Nostradamus-level power for trend-forecasting? She’s also an award-winning author, blogger, speaker, thought-leader, and creator of “Health Populi”, one of — if not THE most — notable blogs covering the health/care ecosystem as well as the author of her new book, “From Health Consumer to Health Citizen: Health Consuming.” Learn more at
