COVID-19: The New Reality - A Conversation with Dr. Michael Osterholm and Jane Sarasohn-Kahn

SXSW Sessions

In 2017 when Dr. Michael Osterholm published his book, The Deadliest Enemy, he cautioned that the world was utterly unprepared for the next pandemic. Despite clear warnings, the unthinkable did become the inevitable. One year into the COVID-19 global pandemic, we are still grappling with mask shortages and public safety messaging and now challenged with the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. Joined by health economist Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, Dr. Osterholm speaks to the SXSW community about what is next in the fight against COVID-19. From the immediate concerns around new variants to the "collateral damage" we face from this pandemic, Dr. Osterholm and Ms. Sarasohn-Kahn share insights to help navigate public health in 2021 and beyond.

Accelerate Health Citizenship: An Interview with Economist and Author Jane Sarasohn-Kahn

HIMSS Accelerate Health Podcast

In this week’s episode, host Kerry Amato speaks with health economist Jane Sarasohn-Kahn about her new book Health Citizenship: How a Virus Opened Hearts and Minds. Jane shares what it was like to write a book during the COVID-19 pandemic, and what inspired her to apply the concepts of health citizenship to the current healthcare struggle. The pandemic forced us all to change our daily lives in pursuit of health goals and thrust the pursuit of public health goals to the forefront of everyone’s minds, truly making us all health citizens.Jane and Kerry discuss how the virus forced rapid digitization of daily activities, including health-related activities, and how individuals and organizations became primarily digital almost overnight. Reflected in the rapid growth in telehealth, the enterprise of healthcare has been deeply impacted by this transformation. But everyone didn’t have the same ability to participate in this transformation, and the pandemic highlighted cracks in our social fabric and exacerbated existing societal inequities. Those with the means to quickly adapt and transform were able to thrive in this new environment, while many may find themselves left behind.Jane expands on the concept of health citizenship by reminding us that health and the other activities we pursue as citizens are deeply intertwined, reminding us that economic circumstances and other social determinants have major impacts on health outcomes for individuals. Our health is directly tied to the society we create as citizens governing ourselves. Finally, Jane discusses the four pillars of health citizenship: access to healthcare for everyone, the ability to control your own data, trust in how systems will use your data, and love, driving a new social contract for health and wellbeing.The intersection of the pandemic and the US election highlighted how the choices we make together as citizens can have profound effects on our health. Beginning to think like health citizens may be the best path forward as we put the pandemic behind us.

Optimizing your Nutrition, Kitchen and Self-Care Routines w/ Jane Sarasohn-Kahn

Anti-Aging Uncensored

A conversation on anti-aging and health is incomplete without the inclusion of mental health and nutrition. These are two of the most pivotal areas that can help or hurt our wellness efforts and routines. In 2020, we had to take our health into our hands more than ever before. We’ve had to manage the stress of the pandemic from our homes, and get creative to make up for the health and beauty treatments we’re missing out on. In stressful times, self-care becomes more therapeutic, especially if it can allow us to get out of the digital space and recharge. Creative and artful pursuits are very powerful tools we can use to feel better and boost our meditation practice. How can we combat low to medium anxiety and depression? Why do women play a pivotal role in the health of our society? In part 2 of my conversation with health economist, expert advisor, consultant, Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, we talk about products and practices that help us manage stress, and how to bring me-care into the kitchen.3 Things We Learned From This EpisodeHow aging affects our hands and feet As we get older, we start to experience pain in many areas of our bodies, but particularly in our hands and feet. Aging also dehydrates every part of our body but particularly our elbows and the soles of our feet.  Why health begins (and ends) in our kitchenThe kitchen is the center of the home health hub. If we can keep our kitchens healthy, that trickles down into every facet of our health from our fitness to how we feel. A kitchen filled with unhealthy food creates an unhealthy household. If we fill our kitchens with nutritious food, it’s easier to opt for something healthier.  The versatility and benefits of journaling Journaling has multiple applications and it can fit into any area of our lives. We can apply journaling to our stress relief attempts, our gratitude practice, tracking our weight loss, fitness, skincare and even travel.Guest Bio Jane Sarasohn-Kahn is a health economist, advisor, healthcare consultant, and trend-weaver for clients in the business of health care at the intersection of health+technology+people. She works with health stakeholders across the healthcare ecosystem on strategy, scenario planning, policy and health care reform, and environmental analysis.Jane also blogs at Health Populi, contributes to Huffington Post, Tincture and Medium.

She shares the Anti-Aging products for skincare, makeup and sleep that are changing her life. 3 Things We Learned From This EpisodeWhy the home has become the hub for health and self-care in 2020In 2020, the fear of missing out (FOMO) has become the fear of going out (FOGO). Our focus has shifted from finding health solutions outside of our homes, to products that can allow for DIY self-care from the comfort and safety of our homes. The importance of including oral care in our self-careOral care is something we have to take seriously. It’s linked to heart disease and other comorbidities. Taking care of our teeth averts our reliance on the healthcare system, and saves us money on dental and periodontal care in the long-run. How to lessen our dependence on the healthcare systemOur goal should be taking control of our own health when we can, and making our home the center of our personal care. Then when we do need to make use of the healthcare system, getting the best care possible.Guest Bio Jane Sarasohn-Kahn is a health economist, advisor, healthcare consultant, and trend-weaver for clients in the business of health care at the intersection of health+technology+people.
