Making Women's Lives Easier

Making Women's Lives Easier

Pandia Health was founded by Dr. Sophia Yen, Perla Ni, and Elliott Blatt with the intention of making women’s lives easier. We’re on a mission to make sure women never run out of birth control on our watch.

We believe that women deserve #PandiaPeaceOfMind, knowing that your birth control is taken care of so that you can focus on everything else that comes up in your busy lives. No more #PillAnxiety – the fear of running out of medications or having to run to the pharmacy each month. You have #BetterThingsToDo. Go out there and enjoy life and let Pandia Health do the worrying!
