Finalist: Kristina Saffran
CEO & Co-Founder
Kristina Saffran was diagnosed with anorexia at the age of 10. After four hospitalizations and multiple relapses, her family discovered Family-Based Treatment (FBT), the leading evidence-based treatment for eating disorders. In 2019, Saffran co-founded Equip, the only company that’s increasing access to eating disorder treatment through a virtual care model that builds upon FBT. Unlike traditional treatment centers that remove a patient from their family, Equip empowers families to help their loved ones through recovery at home - making treatment more sustainable and affordable.
