According to Fierce Healthcare, “While the industry continues to grapple with a lack of racial and gender diversity at its highest levels of leadership, Fierce Healthcare aims to shine a spotlight on some of the critical contributions made by people of color across health systems, physicians’ offices, health tech, research and public health. In its fourth annual Most Influential Minority Executives in Healthcare awards, Fierce spotlights 10 leaders across the industry who are shaping the way healthcare of the future will be delivered.”
Dr. Menezes has a mission to bring health equity to all, especially underserved and vulnerable communities. By increasing access and closing gaps in care in the community, Dr. Menezes and her team at Simple HealthKit are tackling global chronic conditions such as diabetes, kidney health, colon cancer screenings and epidemics such as STDs, the ongoing tripledemic (COVID-19, Flu A/B & RSV) and more.

“I am humbled to receive this recognition from Fierce Healthcare as a testament to the hard work our whole team at Simple HealthKit has been doing this year to address health inequity,” said Dr. Sheena Menezes, CEO and Co-Founder of Simple HealthKit. “As a refugee and an immigrant, I learned from an early age about the disparities in healthcare in different communities around the world and am passionate about making a difference in people’s lives and demonstrating that world-class care is a right for everyone, not a privilege. At Simple HealthKit we will continue to innovate with our end-to-end healthcare platform that provides diagnostics, treatment and follow-up care and reach more communities in need of high-quality, affordable healthcare.”
