Empowering People with Health & Happiness
Our mission is to elevate healthcare by providing the supplemental support needed for physical and mental well-being. We believe optimal health should be accessible to everyone –– regardless of age, race, gender, and income. We support this vision by making healthy living accesible through holistic, virtual, and free-of-charge wellness services.
The arrival of COVID-19 highlighted the healthcare system’s strengths and weaknesses. It emphasized the gaps in patient care and preventative medicine. UPIC Health’s Founder, Mary Tucker, responded by partnering with NBC-HWC Sandrina Bencomo and assembling a team of wellness practitioners to narrow that breach and disrupt the current paradigm. My Care Village demonstrates that accessible support can transform lives through whole-person, client-focused, free wellness services.
My Care Village was initially created to help women get the care and resources needed to cope with the pandemic’s impact. Created amid a worldwide crisis –– we turned these challenges into an opportunity to provide attainable wellness services and improve the healthcare system. We empower people to take control of their lives, health, and happiness.
