Product Launches: -- Founded by two black doctors who tired of watching patients who looked like them die sicker and younger, Welfie is launching "Booster Troop," a fun health media literacy initiative that helps underserved children better spot misinformation. It launches October 24 for Media Literacy Week, and it includes a 7-minute animated episode in both English and Spanish, a lesson plan, and other classroom materials. Welfie provides culturally competent health and mental health education and care coordination to schools.
