Evolving Technology: Metaverse is the New Universe​

Vice President of Market Development, Director of Hospice and Veterans for MyndVR, Jessica Benson entered the world of virtual reality (VR) in 2016 establishing a grant-funded program delivering VR to hospital patients and their families. The initiative’s mission was to help relieve pain and stress associated with medical treatment and hospital stays. Benson knew that virtual experiences would provide significant relief for users and was inspired to launch Immersive Cure - a VR startup focusing on Veterans, hospice, and palliative care organizations.
Since then, Immersive Cure was acquired by MyndVR. and she has become an international spokesperson for virtual reality and its applications for the elderly market. She has appeared in Crain’s, Modern Healthcare, Akron Legal News, TechOhio, Voice of America, and has been profiled on ABC, Spectrum 1 News, and a variety of radio stations and podcasts. Jessica has also spoken on panels for The University of Akron’s National Science Foundation I-Corps Cohort and Global Silicon Valley Startup Bootcamp.
