What Is Sharecare?

Earlier this year, I joined forces with some of the biggest names in health care to provide quality answers to your health questions through an online social platform, Sharecare.

Dr. Mehmet Oz and Jeff Arnold, creator of WebMD, founded Sharecare in 2009 in order to “simplify the search for quality healthcare information and provide consumers with the necessary tools to make smart health choices and live healthier lives.”

The mission of Sharecare according to their website “is to answer the world’s questions of health and achieve a collective wisdom by developing a comprehensive database of all of the questions of health and wellness and actively recruiting industry experts to answer them. Leading physicians, nurses, hospitals, clinics, authors, healthcare companies and non-profits connect, interact and share their collective expertise encouraging consumers to ask, learn and act upon questions of health.”

Dr. Oz introduced the Sharecare website on his show recently, encouraging his viewers to visit with their online health questions.  For more on what he has to say about it, check out this video.

Since February, I’ve been answering questions as a psychology expert on Sharecare and thought I’d share some with you.  If you’re interested in seeing my answer to a specific question, just click on the link below and it will take you to the Sharecare site.

While you’re there, take a look around!  Ask a question or two or search for a health topic you’re interested in.  There is a wealth of information there with lots of expert opinions, and it’s a great resource for you to bookmark for all of your online health questions!
