The digital media brand focused on millennial women expands offerings to include curated wellness newsletter

July 26th, 2023 (New York, NY) – theSkimm, a mission-driven digital media company, today announces the launch of its latest newsletter, Skimm Well – a weekly email focused on women’s health and wellbeing. Skimm Well makes it easier for women to reach both long and short-term health goals by offering science-backed information, access to experts, and actionable tools — all delivered with theSkimm’s signature wit to make very real health challenges feel slightly less daunting. 

With a direct line of communication to its audience of mostly millennial women, theSkimm is uniquely equipped not only to know where women are struggling to get the health answers and care they need now, but positioned to anticipate what information they will need in the future. Breaking down the latest wellness trends, product recommendations, and myths, Skimm Well offers quick answers to the questions women are asking without the misinformation and pseudo science that crowd the wellness space.

“theSkimm has become a daily part of our audiences’ lives for over a decade. As they have grown up and evolved, we have done the same, meeting them in each life stage,” said theSkimm’s Editor-in-chief, Niven McCall-Mazza. “In the wake of the pandemic, women continue to take on unprecedented levels of stress and report serious concerns about their wellbeing. Knowing that, and the challenges they  face in getting basic health information, diagnoses, and care, we felt an obligation to help our readers advocate for themselves. Skimm Well anticipates what information and tools they will need when there is no systemic support. Our goal is that after interacting with this newsletter, a reader feels as if a weight has been lifted because they not only got clear, trustworthy information, but actually crossed something off their to-do list that’s been keeping them up at night.”

The Skimm Well newsletter comes at a crucial time. theSkimm’s recent State of Women Report highlighted that 77% of women feel that they are the only advocates for their wellbeing. Sixty-seven percent of women say they can’t remember the last time they felt relaxed, seventy-three percent agree that sometimes life is so overwhelming that they just want to run away. Eighty-two percent say that while women are overburdened, no one is actually helping ease that burden.

And when they do seek medical help, more than half of women said they’ve encountered a doctor who doesn’t believe them. In a world that hasn’t advocated for women, Skimm Well helps them advocate for themselves.
