A dynamic collaboration of women, scientists, engineers, physicians and clinical researchers
A message from Dr Joe Peterson, our CEO
“In the U.S., based upon insurance claims data, fewer than 40% of women have an annual mammogram beginning from the age of forty, even though ‘every year beginning at age forty,’ remains the most effective regimen and is endorsed by leaders in every clinical specialty that deals with breast cancer.
“At Bexa, our team, advisors, and board of directors are squarely focused on the lack of both participation in and access to current early detection options, a quiet but very real tragedy.
“Globally 90% of women have no technology-assisted early detection option: that’s 1.3 billion women with little chance to beat the most common women’s cancer.”
We are democratizing early detection of breast cancer because for too long we’ve seen women suffer and die from what should be, for most women, a survivable disease.
Our company’s financial structure backs up our commitment – with a model designed to accept payment from markets that can afford reasonable exam fees, and fulfill our social mission in markets that can’t.
The Bexa team includes leading physicians in breast cancer imaging, surgery and medical care. Our subject matter experts bring deep experience from some of the leading breast cancer care organizations.
We are equipped, and committed to, restoring and repairing the trust that a tone-deaf system dismantled. You can expect us to show up with full transparency, investment in our mission, and consistent action.
‘Underserved,’ in breast cancer early detection includes the majority of women of every race, social, educational and economic group. Women who choose to avoid current options. Women who can neither access nor afford expensive technology and procedures.
We choose to focus upon, and bring our highly adopted solution into populations who today are left behind.
