Esther Schorr is co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Patient Power, a leading online channel for cancer patients and family members. She has worked with her spouse, Andrew, on patient and family education projects for more than 30 years. She has supported him in his cancer journey since diagnosis in Seattle in April 1996. Esther is passionate about empowering “care partners” and is a strong believer that education leads to empowerment and better care. She has spearheaded the development of a Care Partner Center on patientpower.info to help connect care partners with each other for support and information sharing, as well as surface resources to help care partners navigate their special role in the healthcare and advocacy journey. Most recently, Esther is driving a “social listening” initiative in collaboration with an innovative tool partner to provide deep insights about patient and care partner concerns. This insight can be used to target and produce relevant content and support clinical trial recruitment efforts. Esther’s experience as a business and marketing consultant and project manager spans high technology, finance, hospitality, not-for-profit, and health care sectors. Esther has an undergraduate degree in communications and an MBA, both from UCLA.
