Cone Health & Tumbles Partner to Create Evidence-Based Child Development Programming.
Cone Health Ventures is excited to announce the formation of a strategic initiative between Cone Health and Tumbles, LLC. This initiative will allow Cone Health to access and use existing Tumbles child development program and curricula while working closely with Tumbles to develop an evidence-based child development program.
This program, to be developed, tested, and validated in Cone Health’s new Sagewell wellness center, will demonstrate to parents the importance of engaging children in facilitated play at an early age to ensure children develop the physical skills necessary to be successful in school and life. Program development is being led by a team of Cone Health Occupational and Physical Therapists who are passionate about improving the health and well-being of children in the communities they serve. Once this program is fully developed and tested, it will be made exclusively available to consumers through the Tumbles network of child physical fitness centers.
Cone Health Ventures identifies entrepreneurial companies with innovative solutions that address top strategic goals of Cone Health. By negotiating win-win agreements to align the interests of all parties, and breaking down internal barriers to innovation, Cone Health Ventures accelerates the development and commercialization of these solutions to create value for the companies, Cone Health, and the communities we serve.
