Startup EVA Opens Its First Clinic Against Breast Cancer


The founder of the company inaugurated this Wednesday in Puebla its first primary care clinic for the company, focused on providing diagnostic services for breast cancer, and which will work mainly with the support of the bra they developed.

Julián Ríos, the 19-year-old entrepreneur behind Eva, a Mexican startup that started the development of a smart bra three years ago with the ability to help women detect abnormalities related to breast cancer, took a step this Wednesday. more in their quest to push this project.

And it is that he made the opening, in the city of Puebla, of the first primary care clinic of the company, focused on giving diagnostic services for breast cancer, and that will work mainly with the support of the bra they developed.

In an interview with Forbes Mexico at the clinic facilities, Julián Ríos pointed out that Eva Clinic, the name that this medical concept will have, will aim to strengthen the fight that they are seeking to give to breast cancer, a disease considered the first cause of death in Mexican women.

“What we are looking for with Eva Clinic is to improve the primary care service around breast cancer, with a clinic that allows women to have a diagnosis on the state of health they have without having to live a dark and difficult process for them like the one that is lived today in many places dedicated to this work”, he explains.

And it is that according to Ríos, in addition to how complicated it is for many women to make the decision to undergo medical tests related to this disease, the places where they are practiced many times do not have the care that is required to be able to give peace of mind in those moments.

“We want Eva Clinic to be a space where women feel comfortable when carrying out their medical follow-up, to be a place where they are accompanied not only during their studies, but also, depending on the case, to face an eventual illness”, says Ríos.

The clinic, which opens after eight months of analysis by the startup, will give women who attend its facilities their first free consultation and diagnosis, and subsequently they can purchase an annual membership or pay for monitoring received.

Specifically, the medical unit has three spaces, a reception, from where the registry of attendees will be administered; an open waiting room, designed with a view to generating tranquility in women; and, finally, a testing office, where the health analysis will be performed.

According to Julián Ríos, Eva’s commitment in this regard will not only stay here, but they plan to open three more diagnostic clinics in Guadalajara, Monterrey and CDMX in the next four months.
