The Health Data Matters team of Scott Frank, Amy Sheon, Matthew Kucmanic and Alex Rothbaum have designed the Neighborhood Immersion for Compassion and Empathy (NICE) Virtual Reality Simulation to increase awareness of health care providers and staff regarding social determinants of health. Walk in the shoes of a family living in a segregated, distressed urban neighborhood to better understand how poverty and racism affect the opportunity to be healthy. The simulation takes about 20 minutes, plus 5-10 additional minutes to provide feedback on the experience.
The simulation can be viewed through our VR headsets by appointment or we can offer the simulation to groups both locally and across the State.
