CONTACT TRACING REINVENTED - Individual Health and Community Health

We've been through round one of COVID-19's impact on Upper Manhattan. Now as this virus ravages the rest of the country, it's only a matter of time until we may have to deal with this and/or other pandemic-like health challenges again. How can we move towards community resilience and prosperity in the face of this and future health crises? | Home (Uptown Contact Trace) is a locally cohesive, governed, and trusted community-based network. Local neighborhoods and especially at-risk communities need to take charge right now because too many are dying. Our vision is decentralized peer-to-peer governance and tech solution evolving into a comprehensive community solution. | Application
