WHAT GIVES US HOPE?
HEALTH IN COLOR, INC. (HNCOLOR) IS A CONVERGENT AND RADICAL RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT LAB DEDICATED TO INVESTIGATING, CREATING AND EVALUATING DIGITAL ENGAGEMENT, LEARNING AND COMMUNICATIONS TOOLS THAT SUPPORT CUMULATIVE AND SUSTAINED HEALTH AND WEALTH IN POPULATIONS OF COLOR.
In these, rapidly evolving and technology-driven times, Health in Color, Inc. is a disruptive innovator seeking to support populations of color with easy access to culturally-tailored digital engagement, learning and communications scaffoldings that have not historically been built for their appeal and consumption. To reach our goal, we are: 1) observing and questioning what is and has been, 2) going beyond past and present boundaries to experiment with and pilot new concepts and 3) enlarging our territory to new people and partners with diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
We subscribe to the World Health Organization (WHO’s) definition of Health – July 1946: Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity…
How will we disrupt the present and embrace the future?
The technology and business sectors are rapidly planning for the successor to the mobile internet – metaverse. The metaverse is a dramatically emerging concept of online, 3D and virtual spaces that connect users together (Kevin W. Allen, 2021), expected to fully evolve in the next decade.
The metaverse will be a virtual universe with digital experiences that allow people to work, engage, transact business, learn and have fun without geographical boundaries. Proto-metaverse (Matthew Ball, 2020) is already progressively evolving through gaming platforms, virtual meetings, social media and blockchain.
If knowledge is power…and knowledge has truly gone digital…and is ultimately going virtual (metaverse)…
then populations of color must have the options for entrée to these powerful technology platforms that
have the ability to enhance health and life satisfaction.
