JUST ANNOUNCED: The New Era of Leadership 2024 Award Winners


Jane Yan

Chief Operating Officer & Chief Product Officer, LunaJoy Health


She’s Using AI To Revolutionize Preventative Mental Health Care for Moms

Jane Yan joined telehealth startup LunaJoy just last year, but in that short time she has already spearheaded an AI-driven initiative to revolutionize national preventative mental health care. The program promotes whole-population screening, particularly for prenatal and postnatal women, using advanced technology for more efficient screenings. The initiative is helping to elevate healthcare standards nationwide, driving LunaJoy’s already impressive growth. The Y Combinator-backed startup provides mental health therapy, counseling, and medication management for women, and counts Cigna, Humana, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicare, and more among its customers. It just wrapped up a $4.2 million funding round. Yan’s fast success makes sense given her resume; before joining LunaJoy, she was the Co-Founder and COO of Pria, which helps provide health-at-home solutions for chronic care management. At Pria, Yan helped create a health care assistant device in just eight months that was quickly acquired by Stanley Black & Decker.
