About the speaker
Efrat is passionate about the wisdom of dis-ease and human beings’ potential to seize them as an opportunity for life transformation. As a field expert, she has endless curiosity about people. Currently resident physician at the Rehabilitation department in Hadassah, she is also a Chinese medicine therapist and shows great interest in various types of health practices such as Jewish medicine, mindfulness and meditation. Efrat is an alumnus at Duke University’s Leadership program in Integrative Healthcare and sees herself as a healthcare entrepreneur. She currently works on the creation of the “Blue Hub”, an innovation center aiming to establish a Health Creation treatment model within hospitals as a disruptive standard of care toward the future of medicine, bringing together various fields of expertise (tech, design, complimentary medicine, positive psychology and more) to leverage their connection and provide a wide spectrum of health-empowering services aiming to foster patients’ wellness.
Efrat lives in Jerusalem and shares her life journey with David and their 3 kids- Erel, Hoshen and Sinai.
The Protestant community in Jerusalem built the Hansen House in 1887 as a leprosy asylum, after being planned by the German architect Conrad Schick. In 1950 it was sold to the Jewish National Fund and continued to operate as a hospital for 50 years. In 2009, the building was assigned to the Jerusalem Municipality, with the aim of restoring it and reopening it as a cultural center. Overseen by the Jerusalem Development Fund, this impressive historical compound underwent restoration works the following years. It was reopened to the public in 2014 as a center for design, media and technology. Today it offers exhibitions, film screenings, computer and electronic studios, a fabrication lab and more. Along these, it houses Bezalel advanced study programs, the artist’s group - Maamuta, research groups centered on design and technology, as well as the Jerusalem Film and Television Fund and Erev Rav - magazine for Art, Culture and Society.
