The highly curated locator was developed over a three-year period with Healthvana team members traveling all over the U.S. to visit and recommend centers. Utilizing smart design and technology, Healthvana believes it will dramatically reduce STDs through its radically different approach to prevention. The company’s mission is to help people make better health decisions by giving them high quality information at their fingertips.
