Susan Bratton is the Founder and CEO of Savor Health, a technology-enabled provider of personalized nutrition solutions for cancer patients and their caregivers. Leveraging a team of oncology nutrition experts and the latest in technology, Savor Health designs individually personalized nutrition solutions to meet the unique needs of each cancer patient at every step along his/her journey. Susan started Savor Health in 2011 after losing a friend to a brain tumor and, through that experience, becoming aware of the significant unmet nutritional needs of people with cancer. Prior to starting Savor Health, Susan had a successful career on Wall Street as a healthcare services investment banker working at prestigious firms including Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, Wasserstein Perella and Robertson Stephens.
Susan is an outspoken and tireless advocate for cancer patients receiving proper nutrition and nutrition support before, during and after treatment. She strongly believes that the U. S. healthcare system requires new innovation to transform it into a more holistic and integrated system of care whereby multiple disciplines coordinate care together for the benefit of the whole patient. As part of this, her goal is for nutrition to be an integral and included part of such an integrated cancer care delivery system. In addition to her role as CEO of Savor Health, Susan speaks nationally about the importance of ensuring proper nutrition in the cancer patient. Her work in oncology extends beyond Savor Health and speaking engagements to her prior volunteer work at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in pediatrics and as a runner for Fred s Team to raise money for research at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Susan s first book, the Meals to Heal Cancer Cookbook, was published in March 2016.
In her spare time Susan loves to cook, drink good wine, listen to live music and travel. Susan earned a B.A. from Duke University and M.B.A. from the University of Virginia s Darden Graduate School of Business.
