3 Things: Activewear Line Puts Spotlight on STEM


A Dallas-based activewear line is helping women interested in STEM careers, a new ride-share service revvs up the game with two drivers instead of one, and a home services app is making it easier to find a caregiver for your loved ones.

A Dallas-based activewear company is using science to fuel its fashion designs and supporting women’s futures in the process. Epidemia, founded by UT Southwestern Medical School student Lizzie Cochran, features an activewear line donning images of heart tissue, nerve synapses, and other science-related elements. “What I’m amazed by in medical school is how beautiful the human body is at the microscopic level,” Cochran told D Magazine. “I wanted to redefine body image by what’s there in all of us. It’s beautiful and astoundingly efficient.” The company hopes to encourage women interested in science, technology, engineering, and math fields by supporting organizations focused on STEM.

Ride-share service Sofer’d promises to get you — and your car — home safe. The new app is similar to Uber and Lyft, except there are two people you request. One to drive you, and one to drive your car. Rides start at $10. Launch DFW has more about the service.

A California-based home health services app is expanding to Dallas-Fort Worth. Honor, which has been described as the Uber of home health care, uses technology to match needs of patients to skills and capabilities of the caregiver. The app is specifically for non-medical needs, such as bathing, meal prep, and help around the house. The Dallas Morning News has more about the service.
