The African-American community has been disproportionately devastated by COVID-19.


People with weak immune systems are exposed to greater COVID-19 risks for adverse outcomes.


Diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity all weaken the immune system.


Of COVID-19 patients, 57% had hypertension, 42% were obese and 34% had diabetes.*(source)


Our people suffer from all three of these risk factors more than any other group. If these disease conditions were better managed, the risk of COVID-19 infection and deaths could have been significantly reduced.

We at Hico Health, aim to teach our community how to treat their diabetes and high blood pressure, all through our smart phone Hico Health App.

We are a Black-owned, woman-owned, telehealth company that partners with churches to deliver health information to where it is most effective and most needed. 


We have launched a nation wide health campaign that secures funding from donors that allow churches to create and sustain technology enabled health programs and outreach in their communities, which is OUR community.

Join us in battling one of the greatest challenges
