Hack4Equity Georgia 1st Prize Winner for Building Community-based Equity

A 1st prize winner at Hack4Equity. Jumana Care is a community-based app for Black mothers in Georgia to match with certified doulas.

Role

I defined a problem space in maternal health in maternity deserts in Georgia with a solution called Jumana Care. I also onboarded a team to design this solution for Hack4Equity, Health equity for Georgia’s black mothers. I was responsible with aligning the team on understanding the problem, defining the business model, and strategically identifying opportunities to impact social determinants of health from a socioecological model.
