uBiome’s Director of Medical Affairs, Dr. Sarah Gupta, MD, to Present on Women’s Health Panel at South by Southwest® Conference
Date:3/4/2019

uBiome Director of Medical Affairs Dr. Sarah Gupta, MD, will be speaking on how to market taboo topics, a challenge facing the women’s health industry for decades. Additional panelists include Mary Carmen Gasco-Buisson, Director & Innovation Space CEO at Procter & Gamble, Karen Long, Executive in Residence at KCK Group, and Rachel Braun Scherl, Managing Partner & Co-Founder at SPARK Solutions for Growth.

The Women’s Health panel will be hosted on March 12 at 12:30 pm. Experts on the panel will discuss how to effectively market “taboo” topics and why it’s important for today’s leaders and biggest brands to destigmatize pressing health concerns for women.

Over the years, Procter & Gamble’s campaigns have tackled menstruation taboos in India, destigmatized Chinese women’s choice not to marry, and celebrated new freedoms for women in Saudi Arabia. Similarly, SPARK Solutions for Growth has helped their clients market female health products related to sexual arousal, yeast infections, and overactive bladder and incontinence.

uBiome has run successful campaigns to remove the stigma around Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), sexually transmitted infections, and cervical health as part of their inclusive vaginal health check, SmartJane™.

“This is an exciting opportunity to discuss female sexuality which plays a role in promoting female empowerment,” said Dr. Jessica Richman, co-founder and CEO of uBiome. “I am thrilled that Dr. Gupta will be representing uBiome alongside industry leaders to challenge the status quo.”
