I’m fascinated by how much reach healthtech has, making good-quality health information and help accessible to people all over the world. Working at Flo, I believe that there is always a way to make health care information fun or interesting — memorable until the point someone needs it. There is so much health information out there that it can be overwhelming. My goal is to make health information as engaging and valuable as possible while remaining true to science and evidence-based medicine too.
