Kimberly Wilson used her own frustrating experience with finding the right healthcare provider as fuel for creating HUED, an app that makes it easier for users to find culturally competent healthcare.
When Kimberly Wilson was unable to receive the care she needed to treat her uterine fibroids in New York City, she created HUED, an app that makes it easier for users to find healthcare providers of color. Since it was founded in 2018, HUED has attracted financial support from backers like Serena Williams and Northwestern Mutual, and has since developed lessons to help train healthcare professionals on critical race theory and other anti-racist tenets to further improve their care. WIlson told Shape that she wants people to understand that HUED is "trying to put trust back into the healthcare system." It's a noble mission, and will undoubtedly save many lives in the process.
