Jennifer Stanich Banmiller, founder of Hive80, started her career as a pro-consumer advocate in the product and drug recall business. Being front seat to watching hundreds of thousands of consumers that could never get help from the existing legal system, it became clear that we as consumers had little voice to make change happen. Through her experience, she realized that if legal case wasn’t a slam dunk, no law firm would be willing to take on the burden of helping. If you went to the doctor at many of the ever-conglomerating medical groups across our country, you would often be seen for 3 to 10 minutes for the sake of hospital efficiency, without the ability to share your unique set of concerns, and sometimes even prescribed the wrong medication because it was faster or easier. She knew that if we could all help each other talk about health topics and really work together to solve them – connecting the dots from symptom-to-symptom, doctor-to-doctor, and city-to-city, that maybe the next mesh, Juul, or opioid addiction would not happen.
