“It is our mission to use WHIT as a tool to continuously redefine wellness, healthcare and quality of life from inside the home,” said Gloria A. Caulfield, Executive Director of the Lake Nona Institute. “We want to provide solutions that address everyday needs and empower people to be their healthiest self by easily turning intentions into positive actions in a comfortable and collaborative environment. What’s exciting is that WHIT represents the first collaborative home environment created as a living lab for all of us to continuously study and evolve the solutions. For many, this provides unprecedented opportunity to explore possible collaborations across industry and product type – entrepreneurs connecting with major international corporations connecting with academic institutions – all in an effort to transform our home into the healthy haven it should be.”
WHIT seeks to become an international model and springboard for health awareness best practices and an incubator for strategic partners to create new, sustainable products by understanding the value-added to consumers.
