John Hansen-Flaschen is the Paul F. Harron Jr. Family Emeritus Professor of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. He served from 1990 through 2014 as the Chief of the Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Division at Penn. As Division Chief, Dr. Hansen-Flaschen founded the multidisciplinary Paul Harron Lung at Penn with the benefit of a major gift from family members of one of his patients. From 2013 to 2017, Dr. Hansen-Flaschen served as the founding Editor of the international medical journal, the Annals of the American Thoracic Society.

In March 2017, Dr. Hansen-Flaschen founded the Jay and Randy Fishman Program for Home Assisted Ventilation within the Harron Lung Center at Penn. This endowed program serves adults who require long-term mechanically assisted ventilation for chronic hypoventilation. Application of the latest technology for respiratory support enables people who are disabled by chronic nerve or muscle diseases such as muscular dystrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to live at home and engage in their communities.

Dr. Hansen-Flaschen is a career medical educator focusing on medical ethics and humanism. His scholarly interests have focused on reducing the burden of advanced lung disease and critical medical illnesses for patients and family members. His many honors include the the Praxis Award in Professional Ethics from Villanova University, the Leonard P Lang Award of the American Lung Association, and the Career Achievement Award of the American Thoracic Society.

He is also an avid photographer [jflashphoto.com].
