Kate Hersov, MD
Founder and Chief Medical Officer
"You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough."
Kate Hersov is the Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Jumo Health. Having founded the Company to address the unmet needs for pediatric education, her efforts led to the creation of the Medikidz - a team of 5 illustrative characters each representing a different part of the body that came to life as superheroes in comic books. This approach was used to educate children in a familiar format to reduce the fear and anxiety that often accompanies a medical diagnosis.
To her credit, Kate has been awarded PharmaVoice Magazine’s Top 100 Most Inspiring People in Life Sciences, the Desmond Tutu Global Achievement Award for Excellence, CNBC UKs Tech Industry Top Women Entrepreneurs, Management Today 35 Leading Women Under 35 and Woman of the Future’s Entrepreneur of the Year.
Kate qualified as a doctor in New Zealand, working in Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics, and at the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand.
