Gators Punter with Crohn's Nominated for Courage Award

Posted by GI Monitor

David Lerner, walk-on punter for the Florida Gators who won the starting job after being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, was just nominated for the Discover Orange Bowl Courage Award (link to full story below). I've come to know David and his family in recent months and can tell you that this is a well-deserved nomination. Yes, David was diagnosed with Crohn's and battled through his sickness to win the starting job as punter for a top tier college football program. But that's a tiny part of David's courage. Prior to last summer, David barely knew what Crohn's Disease was. Today, he finds time in his busy schedule to hop on the phone with kids who share his diagnosis. For this and many other reasons, David will also be honored later this year by the New York Chapter of the CCFA (Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America - details to come).

I hope that when my 3-year-old son is 22, he has a similar grasp on the important things in life (I also hope he can punt like David). David Lerner was given a crushing medical diagnosis in the middle of some happy years as student-athlete at a top tier college program. He took it on the chin, won the starting punter job and immediately started to help those with his disease. So the next time you hear someone snicker that punters are soft, tell them about David Lerner.

You can read the full story about David's nomination here and see a video about David below.

This WSJ video presents a pretty good overview of what some patients are doing to take control of their health. In this rapidly evolving era of consumer health, its super important that neither the patient nor the doctor sees the "Health Hacker" model as trumping the guidance of an educated health care provider. The right model is a partnership between data collection and data analysis.

by Brett Shamosh Entrepreneurship is hard. All those blog posts you read about the ups and downs are absolutely true. But so are the parts about affecting change and disrupting conventional workflows. And that’s what makes me smile every morning when I look at my Socialize feed in GI Monitor and see things like “My GI recommended it” and “my nurse suggested this app”.
