In 2010, before online health communities were popular, Amrita Bhowmick began her crusade to positively leverage technology, specifically condition-specific websites and social media, to engage people living with challenging health conditions in meaningful ways. Invited to join Health Union at its inception, Amrita helped to build the model that the company continues to evolve.
