For the past twenty-two years, Eckert has been a vocal advocate and results-driven leader in women’s health and sexual medicine.

She started Sprout only one day after selling another company she co-founded, Slate Pharmaceuticals, which redefined long lasting testosterone treatment for men. In the last ten years, Eckerthas started and sold two businesses for more than $1.5 billion through her tenacious championing of women’s sexual and reproductive health. @cindypinkceo
