About VRforHealth

VRforHealth begins with two women on a mission, Denise Silber, a digital health pioneer and patient engagement advocate in Paris, France. Beth Savoldelli, a business development professional, cancer survivor and patient advocate in Dallas, Texas.

Believing in the power of therapeutic VR, they travel to the 2019 Cedar Sinai Virtual Medicine conference. Denise Silber moderates the patient testimonials and emits a call to action for VR awareness and action. Beth Savoldelli, seeking to use her professional skills to leverage the ecosystem for patients, reaches out to Denise. A team is formed.

Together they create a one-stop online resource to:

  • explain VR therapy through curated videos of each medical condition
  • bring professionals, patients, and technical partners together

VRforHealth is born.
