Dohmen Company Foundation Tournavation Announces HealthHero Software Unveiling
New catalytic software solutions that improve the health of Milwaukee’s women and children, fathers and families is ready to serve local children
Milwaukee, Wisc. January 26, 2016 — The Dohmen Company Foundation in partnership with Red Arrow Labs today announces the unveiling ceremony for the software product developed as a result of the 2015 Tournavation. The ribbon cutting will take place on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the Don & Sallie Davis Boys & Girls Club located at 1975 S 24th St, Milwaukee, WI 53204.
The Tournavation hosted a public call for catalytic software solutions that improve the health of Milwaukee’s women and children, fathers and families. On Tuesday, October 20, 2015, a panel of expert jurors at the live Tournavation event chose the semi-finalists from a group of 10 presenters. The top two ideas were then assessed for technical viability to determine which project would be developed as a software solution by a coalition of volunteer IT professionals led by Red Arrow Labs, a Dohmen Company. The initial design and development phase of the project has concluded and HealthHero is now ready to be gifted to the community as a single, tangible step toward improving the health of Milwaukee residents.
“HealthHero is a terrific example of applying technology to improve the health and wellness of a future generation. In addition to helping influence lifelong healthy habits, we believe it will fuel greater interest in STEM careers,” stated Cynthia LaConte, CEO of Dohmen and President of The Dohmen Company Foundation. “We were extremely pleased to support this innovative initiative. The launch of HealthHero demonstrates the value of collaboration, powered by technology, to solve real issues.”
The ribbon cutting ceremony will include a product demonstration. This event is free and open to the public. To follow the development of the software solution or to receive updates about the Tournavation process, please visit: http://bit.ly/Tournavation.
