Jessie Gruman

On December 16, 2010 APS Member Jessie Gruman, founder and president of the Center for Advancing Health (CFAH), was recognized by Oprah Winfrey “for her commitment to help Americans when they or their loved ones face the challenges of a serious illness.”

Since 1992, the Center for Advancing Health has had the vision that all Americans would be prepared to make good choices about health and health care. This non-profit conducts research, communicates findings and advocates for policies that support everyone’s ability to benefit from advances in health science.

Gruman received a personal letter from Oprah acknowledging her exceptional contributions to society. Gruman, a three time cancer survivor, has recently been diagnosed with cancer again, but has continued to provide valuable insights to others through blogging, speaking to the media and national audiences, and pulling from personal experience, surveys, and peer-reviewed research findings.
