Founder & CEO of Cincinnati-based Ms.Medicine Shares Honor With National Role Models Including Melinda Gates and Jane Fraser
Lisa Larkin, MD, FACP, NCMP, IF, Founder & CEO of Cincinnati-based Ms.Medicine, was named to Worth Magazine’s “Groundbreakers 2020: 50 Women Changing the World.” Dr. Larkin was recognized for her work in advancing healthcare for women and ending gender disparity in medicine. She shares the honor with other national change-makers working towards women’s equality, including Melinda Gates, of The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; Jane Fraser, President of Citigroup; Sarah Thomas, first female official with the NFL; and the U.S. Women’s National Soccer team.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized alongside this group of extraordinary women using their voices to advocate for women in so many different fields,” said Dr. Larkin. “While there is much work to do to end disparity in healthcare, I’m thrilled to be among those seen as inspiring change.”
Worth’s article notes that these women are “50 of the most influential women of our time. They’ve broken through barriers to change their industries—and push us all forward.”
Dr. Larkin launched Cincinnati-based Ms.Medicine in 2018 with the goal of advancing healthcare for women. Recognizing that women’s often-complex health needs are unmet in the traditional primary care setting, Dr. Larkin designed a concierge primary care model focused on the specific health needs of women, including menopause, bone health, sexual health and more. Ms.Medicine providers have advanced training in women’s health, follow evidence-based treatment guidelines, and focus not just on illness but also prevention and overall wellness.
Ms.Medicine has offices in Cincinnati and Northern, Virginia, and will open offices in Michigan, Ohio and Florida in 2020.
