Episode Overview: 

How can we effectively address the health crisis of loneliness and social isolation in vulnerable populations? 

Our next guest, Cindy Jordan, co-founder and CEO of Pyx Health, is tackling this challenge head-on.

Pyx Health's innovative approach combines compassionate technology with timely human interventions, offering patients, health insurers, and at-risk organizations a scalable solution. 

While together, Cindy shares her deeply personal, touching and inspiring journey, and the experiences that fueled her mission to the groundbreaking strides Pyx Health is making in addressing this U.S. health epidemic.

  • How Pyx Health combines technology with human "peer mentors" to engage lonely and isolated individuals and help them re-engage with their health and communities.
  • The staggering statistics around the prevalence and impact of chronic loneliness, including it being most common among 18-24 year olds.
  • The powerful story of Cindy's stepdaughter Riley, whose loneliness contributed to her struggles with bipolar disorder before her tragic passing.
  • Cindy's vision for Pyx Health's peer mentor model helping fill workforce gaps and becoming the standard for caring for vulnerable, disengaged populations.
