MyHealthTeam Co-Founders

MyHealthTeam was founded in 2012 by Eric Peacock and Mary Ray. They launched MyAutismTeam, followed by MyBCTeam for breast cancer. Both sites proved the concept that people with chronic conditions and rare diseases — and their caregivers — need medically reviewed information combined with peer support from others facing the same diagnosis. Eric and Mary have led the MyHealthTeam in continued growth. In 10 years, MyHealthTeam’s portfolio has grown to serve nearly 60 medical conditions.

PatientInsights by MyHealthTeam

MyHealthTeam regularly conducts research, surveys, and polls with its audience of more than 20 million patient visitors and 4 million registered members. This research helps us to listen, learn, and then act upon what patients are saying, feeling, and needing. 

These studies are also frequently selected to be featured at global health care meetings. In 2023, MyHealthTeam research was featured at more than 13 medical conferences covering health equity, treatment satisfaction, and burden of disease across several medical conditions. This investment in research by MyHealthTeam is necessary to connect the dots between patients, health care professionals, and pharma and biotech companies to collectively improve health outcomes.
