Anca Griffiths is the co-founder and CEO of OM, a precision medicine company where the best minds in health come together to support corporates and individuals. After working alongside renowned health professionals and speaking with women worldwide, Anca was shocked to discover the extent to which women are the biggest victims in the current medical and wellness system. To address these significant hurdles, she teamed up with Dr. Jenkins and Dr. McGregor to write the groundbreaking book, Why Women Aren’t Winning at Health. Drawing on their expertise and insights, this work provides a powerful foundation for women to achieve optimal health and wellness. With contributions from recognized global experts, this book has the potential to transform the way women and healthcare professionals approach health and empower women everywhere to thrive.

In this episode, Anca and I talk about why we need to raise the standard for women’s health, the four key factors impacting women’s health today, the critical need for body literacy and self-advocacy in women’s health, the lack of understanding and awareness that prevents meaningful change, and so much more!
