Your North Star: How to Pivot Without Getting Lost w/ Angela Fusaro


Being familiar with gaps in healthcare, especially around access to convenient and cost-effective care, can be motivating.

And it is precisely that familiarity with the lack of social equity in access to care that has motivated Dr. Angela Fusaro’s entry into the healthcare solution market.

It’s often difficult to see what’s right in front of you - but, sometimes, life hands you a pre-existing framework on which to build that’s so obvious, you have to act - and act fast.

Leveraging a career in emergency medicine and a passion for education, Dr. Fusaro identified a need and built an answer within the existing community pharmacy network.

From pivoting to iterating your sales strategy to seeking out a mentor who fits your current phase of commercialization, our viewers will find her insights both timely and actionable.
