Insight for Impact
“The reason I believe in advocating for greater investment in women’s health research is that – you don’t know what you don’t know. The reality is, when it comes to women’s health and women’s unique physiology, we don’t know nearly enough. I’m intrigued by the untapped potential and possibilities which are yet to be discovered, and which will help make women healthier. This is where I think there is limitless opportunity. That really inspires me.”
