The WCC aims to identify everyday innovators within Philadelphia who have great ideas to address health concerns that affect our communities, and we want YOUR input.
This fall, the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia is relaunching an innovation competition called the Well City Challenge (WCC): Community Solutions for Heart and Mind Health.
The purpose of the listening session is to understand barriers to receiving cardiovascular and/or mental health care from the community’s perspective. We will only use this information to help shape the Well City Challenge, which will launch in 2023.
The WCC is a competition that will identify and support everyday innovators who have ideas or early-stage businesses that represent creative, promising, and scalable community-based health solutions to address conditions in their environment that limit cardiovascular or mental health care. Successful applicants will get access to a network of experts to help develop their business idea. Finalists will be connected to investors, health care systems, and other organizations to help the idea take off – and one or more participants will win a grand prize of $50,000!
If you feel passionately about health inequity and want to help shape this Challenge, contact Tia Abdulhadi to learn more about the Well City Challenge and how you can participate in the Community Listening Sessions.
