About Georgie Kovacs Founder of Fempower Health
HOW FEMPOWER HEALTH GOT STARTED

The Story

Who would have imagined that stumbling upon a paper I wrote in 1992 about the FDA's mandate for women's inclusion in clinical trials would ignite an enduring passion for women's health? 

Over the next 20+ years, I embarked on a relentless pursuit to make a profound impact in the field of women’s health. My journey took a personal turn when I faced a heartbreaking battle with infertility. 

However, once I recovered, I realized that the challenges women face extend far beyond infertility and into women’s wellness as a whole. Issues such as being dismissed by doctors, enduring years of searching only to find no answers, grappling with shame, and navigating confusing online searches were all too prevalent. Yet, amidst this chaos, I also unearthed a valuable truth: the answers — though not readily apparent — could be found through diligent research and collaboration with voices advocating for women in healthcare.

For this reason, Fempower Health was born. Since 2020, by collaborating with top healthcare experts, researchers, and advocates, Fempower Health has become a trusted resource that empowers women with evidence-based information and support. Together, we continue to educate women, redefine the narrative surrounding women's health, and ensure every woman has the knowledge they need to thrive.

Let’s Talk About:
  • Is the Fempower Health content credible?
    The founder, Georgie Kovacs, has worked in healthcare her entire career. The premise of Fempower Health is to hand select experts focused on specific areas of women's health. Additionally, the content shared is NOT medical advice and instead to be used for educational purposes only. You are the expert on your body. Your healthcare provider is trained on the medicine. Our mission is to empower you with information so that you have more impactful conversations with your healthcare provider to optimize your path forward. Additionally, women's health continues to evolve. Remember, we are decades behind because most research has been based on male anatomy. This further emphasizes the need for you to understand your body and collaborate with your healthcare provider.
