The Joe & Emmy Liu Foundation’s mission is to use technology innovation to benefit human wellbeing.
The Joe and Emmy Liu Foundation was founded by Silicon Valley semiconductor veteran Joe and his wife Emmy in 2019. The Liu Foundation’s mission is to use technology innovation to benefit human wellbeing.
The Foundation recognizes that the rising prevalence of chronic conditions has negatively affected 60% of Americans and resulted in shorter lifespans. Chronic condition treatments consumed about 90% of the nation’s $4 trillion-dollar total health care cost, or about $3.6 trillion annually, in 2020. Thus, it is a threat to our next generations.
According to the CDC, the majority of chronic conditions are caused by key lifestyle risks such as smoking, excessive drinking, and overeating. The Foundation thus devoted a philanthropic Lively Health App using technology innovation to prevent chronic conditions. The app covers holistic health, is easy-to-use, and is designed to gradually change users’ lifestyle habits to lower the likelihood of getting chronic conditions.
Lively Health chronic conditions prevention app covers physical, mental, social, financial, and medical lifestyle choices to educate, motivate, and shape ones’ lifestyle habits, as a result, prevent illness and gain quality of life.
