About The Show

Dive into the heart of healthcare innovation with the HIT Like a Girl Podcast, hosted by Joy Rios. This isn't just a podcast; it's a mission to demystify the complex, 30,000-piece puzzle of the US healthcare system. Each episode, we invite the brilliant minds and passionate voices of women who are not just participants but pivotal change-makers in healthcare.

Our guests share their unique piece of the puzzle, offering insights, innovations, and inspiration. Join us as we explore the contributions of women experts in the field, learn from their experiences, and celebrate the impact they're making every day. The HIT Like a Girl Podcast is where education meets empowerment, and where you're invited to be part of the conversation that's driving the healthcare industry forward.
