about us



Hood Medicine Initiative is a nonprofit public health collective made up of scientists, physicians, hackers, and other assorted geeks dedicated to protecting black and brown lives throughout the pandemic and beyond




a world where we value the health of every community


we bring science & technology to historically marginalized communities, empower families to make healthy choices, & help them find trusted healthcare & vital resources


established to develop targeted public health
campaigns to drive rapid adoption of COVID-19 preventative measures
and overcome vaccine hesitancy, we want to reduce the spread in
disproportionately affected populations.




we aim to become a trusted voice for black and brown
communities by explaining the science behind COVID-19 and walking
them through the vaccine landscape.



we are compelled to

use science for good

– it is what we were trained to do!
