How can we make an impact with women’s healthcare? There are different roles that each of us can play in women’s health from caregiver, patient, provider, payer, and health systems. All of these roles start with educating ourselves, learning more about what is happening and being there as a resource to support those that are facing these challenges.

Find out about how Priya's journey from being a healthcare attorney to a policy expert is a testament to her passion for advocating for women's health. During the interview, Priya highlights the alarming statistics of maternal mortality rates in the US, emphasizing the urgent need for education and access to healthcare for women throughout their lives.

5 Insights About Women’s Health

  2. The State of Maternal Health: The United States has the highest maternal mortality rate among developed countries, with numbers worsening over the years. The problems span across the entire maternal health journey,  from pre-delivery to postpartum. A concerted effort from all stakeholders is necessary to improve these statistics.

First Ever Women’s Health Research Initiative: The White House Initiative on Women's Health Research “will galvanize the Federal government as well as the private and philanthropic sectors to spur innovation, unleash transformative investment to close research gaps, and improve women's health.”
  4. The Role of Employers in Women's Health: Employers can contribute to improving women's health by designing benefits and policies that support women's health and longevity in the workforce.
  5. Empowering Women Through Education: Through her company, Nyoo Health, Priya Bathija aims to educate healthcare providers and women about women's health. She believes in the importance of normalizing conversations around women's health and learning from each other's experiences.
