Wednesday, January 24th our special guest is the talented, thoughtful and prolific writer, speaker and all around good person Jane Sarasohn-Kahn aka @healthythinker. Jane's popular blog Health Populi notes: As a health economist, I believe that health is a person’s most valuable asset. My mother and father taught me that fundamental value. My mother, Polly, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 1971. There was no Internet to consult; there was a doctor, who fortuitously was just the sort to partner with a patient and be open to the the latest clinical research. While I’m all health/care all-the-time in my profession, I try to lead a balanced life. I am passionate about my family and home life. We are devoted adherents of the Slow Food movement, and you can find us over a pot of something slowly cooking or roasting on most Sunday’s. I love art (from Botticelli and Fra Angelico to Picasso and Miro), theatre and music, big Tuscan reds, my friends, and playing with paper and LEGOs. We look forward to seeing many of you at the 18th Population Health Colloquium in Philadephia, March 19th - 21st, 2018. Join us!
