About WISE Health

WISE Health, founded in 2015, aims to work with organizations to design, implement, and evaluate solutions to major public health issues that impact African American communities. The model for WISE Health was created as a result of the overwhelming and constant observations of the need for more innovative, tailored, and relevant approaches to health and wellness for vulnerable populations living throughout the Bay Area. We believe that community and technology-driven innovation can improve health outcomes, create healthy communities, and inform health policies.

About the DESIGN YOUR COMMUNITY Workshop Series

We are excited to bring you an amazing opportunity for individuals working within the community health sector, focusing on African American communities.  This professional development opportunity is designed to increase innovation and problem-solving skills to help address community needs. In this workshop, you will create a solution that aims to end the current HIV epidemic impacting vulnerable African American communities throughout San Francisco.

This workshop series was created in response to the San Francisco Department of Public Health’s Ending the Epidemic (ETE) initiative.

Our workshop utilizes a design thinking approach, a popular problem-solving tool that puts human and community needs at the center of the process. The workshop will focus on three areas: empathy, ideating, and prototyping. This will help develop a tailored community health solution geared towards ending the HIV epidemic and advancing health equity. The skills will be applied in a simulated activity where you are provided with a current community problem, and you will then have to utilize the design thinking framework to inform a solution. The best part is, you get to do it in the comfort of your own home. Be sure to engage with us on Facebook to see what other people have created.
