In collaboration with its scientific advisory board, Thrive Global vetted hundreds of the latest and most cutting-edge health and well-being technologies, products, and services to curate those that meet standards for quality and impact. Doctor On Demand was selected for its best-in-class consumer experience and top clinical quality. With an average wait time of just 3 minutes, Doctor On Demand makes it simple to care for every aspect of your health—both body and mind.

“Doctor On Demand is honored to be selected as the video-medicine partner for Thrive Global,” said Hill Ferguson, Doctor On Demand Chief Executive Officer. “We've found another mission-driven organization that's as committed as we are to disrupting healthcare-as-usual and putting people back in charge of their own health and well-being.”

The Thrive Global store, located in a 5,000 square-foot SoHo loft, will offer live demonstrations, education, and trials of the latest products and technologies across the categories of mind, body, sleep, productivity, recharging, creativity, and giving. The pop-up will be open seven days a week, December 1 through January 15, 2017.

Doctor On Demand will be featured in the technology sector where consumers will be able to interact and demo the service. Every Thursday, Doctor On Demand physicians will be on-site to administer blood pressure screenings and host informal sessions on the importance of stress reduction. Additionally, Doctor On Demand psychiatrists will host weekly Coffee Talks on Tuesdays, covering topics around holiday stress, work / life balance, and the importance of sleep.

“We are a company deeply rooted in science and dedicated to helping people go from knowing what to do to bring more well-being into their lives to actually doing it. I am so excited to include Doctor On Demand within our amazing collection of products, services and technologies we’re featuring at Thrive Global that will help people improve their well-being and productivity and lead healthier and more joyful lives,” said Arianna Huffington, Thrive Global Founder and CEO.

“In today’s fast-paced world it’s so important for people to find new ways to care for their well-being.
