Embodied Labs

Carrie Shaw is passionate about the art and science of human health. She’s turned that passion into a company, Embodied Labs, that is dedicated to revolutionizing the way health care providers, caregivers, and patients learn about human health through virtual reality storytelling. Embodied Labs envisions a world where healthcare providers and caregivers can provide better quality care to patient populations by better understanding their first-person experiences. Carrie is no stranger to delivering healthcare information in unique ways. Following her graduation from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.S. in Public Health, Carrie joined the Peace Corps as a Health Education volunteer in the Dominican Republic, where she taught reproductive health to youth and worked as a medical translator. It was through this life-changing experience that she discovered that art and storytelling can be used not only as an effective teaching tool for health education, but can cut through cultural and language barriers.
