Dr. Sophia Yen is CEO and Co-founder of Pandia Health, a birth control delivery service on a mission to make women’s lives easier by bringing birth control to women wherever they have internet and a mailbox.
In her work as a physician, Dr. Yen noticed that many of her female patients were skipping birth control because they had trouble refilling their prescription or couldn’t afford medication. This inspired Dr. Yen to launch Pandia Health — an online birth control service that prescribes, refills and offers free delivery of birth control to women, regardless of whether or not they have insurance.
Dr. Sophia Yen has over 20 years of experience in medicine. She graduated from MIT, UCSF Medical School, and UC Berkeley with a MPH in Maternal Child Health. In addition to running Pandia Health, she currently works as a clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Adolescent Medicine at Stanford Medical School.
She is also the co-founder of two non-profit projects that aim to improve the lives of women. The Silver Ribbon Campaign to Trust Women fights for reproductive health care rights and SheHeroes.org empowers young women ages 10-14 to explore their passions and pursue non-traditional career paths.
