Meet Our Advisors: 8 Experts Striving for Improved Intimate Health for Women
For decades, women’s sexual health has been ignored and overlooked by the medical research and business communities. And change doesn’t happen overnight.
We want to take a minute to celebrate our advisors who are actively driving change in the field of women's sexual health, in part because of their support, investment and/or partnership with Joylux.
#1 - Dr. Sarah de la Torre
Dr. de la Torre, MD, is a board-certified OB/GYN, a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), and a thought-leader among her peers in the field of gynecology and wellness. Dr. de la Torre has published research on post-operative infection in the prestigious ACOG Journal and has served as vice chair of the OB/GYN department at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, Washington. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnered with such a leading voice in the field of women’s health!
