In 2019 she discovered an industry called FemTech and she learned about the grave inequalities in women’s health. In March 2020, during the covid-19 lockdown, she started a FemTech podcast and gained international traction overnight. Now Dr. Barreto talk about vulvas full time via her 501c3 non-profit, FemTech Focus!
