"As a nurse, I educate individuals, families and communities about wellness, health promotion, early recognition and disease management. Sharecare provides an accessible online outlet to communicate health information with persons in diverse settings and with diverse needs."

"The opportunity to reach out to, and to educate so many via Sharecare is exciting. It is so fun and rewarding to be able to answer both simple and difficult questions that people may be afraid to ask when they are seeing their health care provider. Hopefully, we will allow individuals to have more comfort in asking questions of their health care providers."
