Our first guest today is Faye McCray, Vice President and Head of Health Equity and Social Impact, Healthgrades, a division of RVO Health, the largest health & well-being platform in the United States, helping nearly 100 million people take action around their health. Ms. McCray will discuss what women seek in healthcare, their current challenges, and the importance of preventative care and early detection. Did you know women make most healthcare decisions but often take care of their children and other family members before themselves? A recent Healthgrades survey found only about half of women had a dental appointment or an annual physical in the last year, and even fewer, just over a third, visited a gynecologist. Faye is a former healthcare attorney, author, speaker, and advocate whose work has been featured in many popular publications. For more information, visit www.fayemccray.com or healthgrades.com.
