Sharecare and STTI have partnered to bring the nursing voice to Sharecare.com. STTI members volunteer as nurse experts to answer health-related questions, providing their nursing expertise while earning incentives.
"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."

Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing at the University of Northern Colorado
|What is Sharecare?|
|Watch Dr. Oz explain how Sharecare makes health information available from a wide variety of sources.|
Sharecare.com is a new website that simplifies the search for health and wellness information. The site was created by Jeff Arnold, founder of WebMD, and Dr. Mehmet Oz, a leading cardiac surgeon, health expert and host of the "The Dr. Oz Show," in partnership with Harpo Productions, Sony and Discovery Communications.
The site provides a place for consumers to ask health-related questions and receive answers from nurses, physicians, acclaimed hospitals of excellence and best-selling authors.
