Turns out I am not alone. In fact, an estimated 85% of women use the Internet to obtain health information, and two out of three go [...]
Women remain (arguably) our most influential consumers – especially in the healthcare space. Not only do women make up a significant portion of consumers overall, they are also a driving force and key influencer behind many of the purchases men make. When it comes to healthcare, this is no exception (and if the men are [...]
