EmpowHer – EmpowHer is an online resource dedicated to helping women improve their health and well-being. EmpowHer provides up-to-date medical information, access to leading medical experts, and a devoted community of women who ask questions, share stories, and connect with one another in a safe and supportive environment.
According to EmpowHer’s About page, the site was founded by Michelle King Robson whose passion for health advocacy was rooted from her own very personal health nightmare. Following a complete hysterectomy some five years ago, Michelle was transformed from a highly active woman to being unable to function. She saw multiple doctors, suffered numerous hospitalizations and took nine different medications before getting the help she needed. As a result from her ‘bad experience’ she felt the net was lacking comprehensive health resources and therefore created EmpowHer which offers a “medical home” for women to discuss their most intimate health concerns. This is a most valuable medical resource for women all over, and I will definitely recommend it to the women in my life.
