Carolina Smales – Founder

Health, as defined by the world Health Organization (WHO) since 1948, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of a disease. “Yet in today’s world, there is a higher concentration on the physical and the mental aspects of health, based on the innumerable health programs and systems, tracking millions of codes in trying to treat individuals with concern about their physical and/or mental health with pharmaceuticals.

Is the Social well-being aspect of health less important?

Our cross cultural and inter-disciplinary team believes that social health or the ability of individuals to form satisfying interpersonal relationships with others, along with their capability to adapt to different social situations and act appropriately in a variety of settings is as important (if not more) than other physical and mental problems from which there is already a wealth of knowledge.

Therefore, we created the JOI (Joy-Of-Interaction) Neuron, a Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and fun program involving music and inter-cultural competence among other aspects that we want to share with others through unique modes of communication, hoping to motivate people to build healthier relationships (based on values of trust, compassion and respect) as well as providing health education using fun facts of neuroscience and chemistry.


The JOI Neuron program is designed for all ages!
