Empowering moms to be their families' best health advocates

My name is Cimeran Kapur and I'm the founder and CEO of Communikind. It's been a long road here, but I am building Communikind after deeply understanding and experiencing that in order for each person and child to unleash their life's full potential, they have to learn how to love and care for themselves. They have to know themselves best and be their own strongest advocate for their needs.

This is not an easy feat for us as humans as it is. And man, the current system architecture does not make it any easier. Our care ecosystem: hospitals, the different disciplines that all contribute to our health and wellness [acupuncturists, speech therapists, etc.], and all the people that care for us over our lives, all work with different frameworks and information. What's worse is that communication amongst them is very poor or non-existant. We sit in the middle of it all but without the tools to bring it all together. That's not a system that is built for our health care. It's built for sick care.

Personally, after I moved to India as a young child and was deeply affected by the poverty and poor health of so many young children, I singularly committed my life to making an impact in people's health. I spent over 15 years working and learning from all the disciplines that contribute to our health, especially when it comes to a child, and I've always sought to bring these disciplines together to serve people and families.

I spent my career in public health, special education, research, clinic operations, and care coordination before I finally went to medical school at UC Davis to train as a pediatric head and neck surgeon. I thought that being a doctor would allow me to have the tools and voice to make system-wide changes from the inside. That was until one lecture discussed how little we can actually do as physician leaders to make an impact because the environment and larger networks had contributed to a system where we have limitations to our impact.

I couldn't stomach this lecture. This was not what I set out for. I felt like I'd wasted all my life getting here for nothing. I kept reeling thinking about how people could better be in charge of their health destinies - 1) through owning their holistic health information so they have a complete picture of their health and wellness, 2) with the right resources to help them make good decisions for themselves and 3) building a strong community of care with effective communication so they have the support they need when needed.

The idea of Communikind was planted and there was no going back. But I was lacking one major perspective. Even with all my years' experience, nothing prepared me for becoming a patient myself -- literally a month after the seed of Communikind was planted, I was diagnosed with life-threatening cancer. It was so eye-opening and powerful experiencing first hand what my patients experienced. I fought and advocated every step of the way, and even with all my connections, I was the person who actually saved my life.

My patient experience has further crystallized and informed how we're building Communikind and we plan to empower as many families as possible to take the best care of themselves.

Meet Cimeran Saturday March 14th at Christie Park!
