We are also absolutely thrilled to have DEBORAH COHAN, who brings joy into her practice of medicine through dance.  She is a mother, obstetrician, HIV researcher, healer and founder of the soon-to-be-launched Foundation for Embodied Medicine.  Deborah had the gift and courage to confront her fear at the time of her breast cancer diagnosis with dance.  And, she made international headlines with a viral YouTube video of her pre-mastectomy flash mob in the UCSF operating room.  Her new foundation will bring the profound healing power of dance to those facing health challenges while also teaching healthcare providers empathy, physical listening and embodiment through dance and movement.
