Real Talk: Welcome to our journey
Hello Real Talk community,
Eighteen months ago, we embarked on a journey to bring high quality comprehensive sex education to middle school students in low-income and rural communities of color across the country. In January 2016, we were named finalists in the Innovation Next accelerator of The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. In the months that followed, we gained design thinking skills from IDEO, talked with hundreds of middle school students, and incorporated as a new nonprofit, MyHealthEd, Inc. Now, we are in the midst of developing our Real Talk app. We plan to have our beta released to the Apple App Store later in 2017.
In the past year and a half, we have been fortunate to garner support from many partners, including The National Campaign, InnovateHealth Yale, The Aetna Foundation, and Fast Forward. In an effort to streamline communications with our funders, stakeholders, supporters, and users, we have decided to start this blog. Through the blog, we plan to share updates, solicit feedback, and welcome new ideas.
If you are receiving this inaugural blog post, that means that we have crossed paths along this journey or that you have expressed interest in the Real Talk app. Either way, thank you for your support and we look forward to connecting with you soon!
Liz, Vichi & Cristina
