WKU's Rachel Tinius discusses research-based pregnancy health app with KY Inno

WKU professor and KCV innovator Rachel Tinius was recently featured in KY Inno for her research-based pregnancy health app, BumptUp. The app helps women improve physical activity and health outcomes during pregnancy.

Tinius previously won a $25,000 first-place prize in the KCV IMPACT Competition for her work developing BumptUp. KCV then connected her with Equalize, and Tinius was recently announced as one of 22 selected into the female-entrepreneur-focused program that pairs candidates from universities around the country with industry mentors.

“Rachel is an exemplary KCV innovator, and we are thrilled for her continued success with BumptUp Labs. Our colleagues and founders of Equalize have created an affirming and competitive program and we are excited to see how she excels at this national opportunity,” said KCV Executive Director Kayla Meisner.
