We hope everyone had a relaxing holiday season and had time to catch up with family and friends. If you didn’t catch our bonus episode released before the new year you should go back and check it out –  Know Stroke 2021 Year in Review

In that bonus episode my Know Stroke Podcast co-host Michael Garrow and I spoke to some of our personal goals this year and tee’d up a theme that we’ll be speaking to a lot during Season 3 – Goal setting and accountability. 

Setting Smart Goals

Especially this time of year we all reflect and set priorities for the new year now in front of us. Like never before, the pandemic has magnified the importance of setting wellness goals and taking charge of your own health.

Being Accountable with a Coach

We’ve heard from many guests over the first 2 seasons the importance of accountability and 1-1 support post stroke. The role of a Health Coach has been used in other disease management programs effectively, and we see this role having a potential to support the stroke population. A Health Coach working as part of the care team can provide that extra layer of 1:1 support and accountability – saving Stroke Nurse Navigators and clinicians time. 

Know Stroke Podcast S3E1

To kick off Season 3 David and I were honored to sit down with Marina Borukhovich, CEO of YourCoach Health to discuss the Health Coaching Revolution she and her team are spear-heading. Marina is a transformative tech leader, an exemplar of the power of health coaching, a breast cancer superhero, and a passion-driven CEO. After moving to Amsterdam and receiving her breast cancer diagnosis, her mission became to help other women feel in control and beautiful. Shortly after her diagnosis, she received her health coaching certification, which guided her to discover an opportunity to innovate in the increasingly important field of health coaching. She founded YourCoach.Health as a practice management platform and interface for all things health coaching, to kickstart the Health Coaching Revolution. It’s Marina’s mission to bring the power of health coaching to as many people as possible.

Out of the office, Marina enjoys boxing, wife-ing, mom-ing and catering to Bentley, her French bulldog and Chief Emotional Support Officer.
