Episode #010- Helping Cancer Patients Thrive featuring Cathy Skinner, CEO and Founder of Thrivors™
3 days ago
Cathy’s vision is to connect precision medicine, life style behaviors, and technology to improve outcomes for cancer patients.
The Thrivors™ platform addresses secondary side effects of cancer treatment where they impact patients the most and where they can go unrecognized - beyond the clinical setting to improve adherence, outcomes, and healing.
Common complications during and following cancer treatment include pain, fatigue, lymphedema, neuropathy, osteoporosis, and psycho-social distress. These side effects, or social determinants of health, can dramatically diminish a patient’s quality of life.
There is an opportunity to combine the clinical power of genomics with the power of patient engagement via the Thrivors™ digital health platform to enrich precision medicine to include social determinants of health and quality of life indicators.
Cathy and I discuss the impact THIRVORS is making on cancer patients, her entrepreneurial journey, and how she maintains her own personal wellness when she continues to give so much to others.
