Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Kellie Lease Stecher, MD, co-founder, and board member of Beyond Physician and Patient Care Heroes, located in Columbus, OH, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I wanted to create something that could positively affect the healthcare community. That’s why Patient Care Heroes was created. Its focus was to help with mental health resources and advocate for changing the culture of medicine. I was then lucky enough to be part of Beyond Physician. This company was created, in part, to help our physician community. It will allow doctors more freedom and help them progress in their careers in whatever direction they desire. We will essentially be helping them to grow their dreams in business, writing, education, or whatever they desire going forward.
