Former blockchain exec joins Folx Health as CEO

Liana Douillet Guzmán will join Folx Health, a New York City-based digital health service providing care for the LGBTQ community, as CEO.

In her new role, Ms. Douillet Guzmán will manage day-to-day operations and continue expansion of the company, with the goal of reaching all 50 states, according to a Feb. 17 news release. Launched in 2020, Folx Health offers virtual primary care designed specifically for the unique experiences of the LGBTQ community, offering plans for treatments such as hormone therapy and PrEP — preexposure prophylaxis for HIV — as well as community through queer and trans service providers. 

"What A.G. and the FOLX Health team have accomplished in a short period of time is inspiring. As a lesbian and Latina, I understand the unique challenges underserved communities face — and not just in healthcare," Ms. Douillet Guzmán said. "I strongly believe in FOLX Health's mission and I look forward to helping the company realize its potential as it leads the charge to create a more equitable and inclusive healthcare system."

Prior to Folx Health, Ms. Douillet Guzmán served as COO of Blockchain, where she oversaw a number of key responsibilities, including expansion, partnerships and operations. Most recently, she served as chief marketing officer of online learning community Skillshare. She's recognized by Forbes as one of the top 50 marketers in the country.
