Who We Are

Our mission is to provide real-time, relevant information about illness to keep children, families, and communities healthy.

We believe:

  • Healthy children lead to healthier homes.
  • Healthier homes lead to healthier, more productive schools.
  • Healthier, more productive schools lead to stronger communities.
  • Healthier, stronger communities lead to fuller, richer lives for us all.

Meet the Sneez Docs

Developed by two pediatric doctors from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Sneez was created to wage a war on germs! Dr. Steve Hodges and Dr. Bill Satterwhite were motivated by a single goal: to improve the health of our children by keeping them well, so the whole community benefits. Fewer sick kids means fewer sick parents and fewer missed work days for both families and businesses. But most importantly, with fewer sick kids, children stay in school, stay active and keep enjoying life to the fullest. Which is what childhood (and the Sneez app) is all about.

Dr. Steve Hodges

Dr. Steve Hodges

Dr. Hodges holds a B.A. degree from Duke University and a M.D. degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine. He is currently an Associate Professor of Urology at Wake Forest Baptist Health. As the married father of three young girls, raising his children has greatly influenced areas of his professional life. For example, changing the diapers of three infants provided the inspiration to create Dr. Soother’s Healthy Wipes, a wipe designed to clean and soothe irritated skin, while reducing the risk of UTI in girls. Known by many as “Dr. Potty”, he also authored the book It’s No Accident: Breakthrough Solutions To Your Child’s Wetting, Constipation, UTIs, And Other Potty Problems. Dr. Hodges’ interest in the use of technology to improve healthcare outcomes, combined with his first-hand experience with the illnesses his children bring home from school, prompted the development of the Sneez app.  Dr. Steve is counting on Sneez to keep his (and all) children safe and healthy.
