The Mission of Well Within is to advance people from their present path to the realization of their full potential through positive, holistic coaching.
Dr. Di Kahn’s career in medicine started when she was only 12 years old. After receiving a Life Saving Certificate from the Red Cross, Dr. Kahn volunteered at Hillsdale University’s pool. There she worked with physically challenged children. Most of these children were victims of Polio. She also was an active participant in the March of Dimes campaign to raise money for the research of a polio vaccine.
In 1962 Dr. Kahn graduated from University of Michigan Medical School with an MD degree in Radiology/Oncology. She served her internship at Leila Y. Montgomery Hospital in Battle Creek, Michigan. Her residency was spent at Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York.
While helping cancer patients live longer through the use of radiation, she was concerned about the quality of life she was expecting from her patients. This concern turned to a passion and she returned to school.
In 1970 Dr. Kahn earned a PhD from Syracuse University in the field of Nutrition. Traveling to Europe for post grad work, she entered as a volunteer in the Cambridge Fellowship program. At that time women were not allowed in any other capacity.
Times were changing and Chemo Therapy was working wonders, but most patients were sick and suffering from lack of proper nutrition. Dr. Kahn’s fervor for people and wanting to help them optimize their health has led her to a deeper belief in the benefits of whole food as fuel for healing and preventing diseases.
Today her enthusiasm for better health to encompass all people is ever present. One doesn’t stay in her company long before the conversation turns to - healthy eating and living.
Some accolades received by Dr. Kahn are:
1999 through 2007 National Registry of Who’s Who in Executives and Professionals
2004 Physician of the Year bestowed by President George W. Bush
2005 – 2006 Florida Business Women of the Year bestowed by the National Republican Congressional Committee
