Here’s an understatement: Women like to talk about their health. Even the most intimate topics aren’t off limits when two of us are side by side at the gym, in line at the supermarket, sharing a bench at the park while breastfeeding or watching a high school football or soccer game. Whether it’s discussing worries about memory loss (our own or our parents’) or the latest in bladder repair (yes, we even talk about that kind of thing), most women aren’t shy.
That’s why we count on health-seeking women to help guide us here at Sharecare. You talk. And we listen. For example:
You told us: “We want more ways to see what health experts are talking about right now on Sharecare.”
So Sharecare added an expert ticker to our newly designed homepage. Some really amazing people show up in that ticker—from Dr. Sam Gandy, Mount Sinai Chair in Alzheimer’s Disease Research, who is doing fascinating work on the link between Type 2 Diabetes and Alzheimer’s, to dermatologist Patricia K. Farris, a clinical assistant professor at Tulane University School of Medicine with a special interest in non-invasive techniques for facial rejuvenation. Watch that ticker and you’ll see a parade of pros.
You told us: “Kick me in the butt, please. I need motivation!”
Enter Dr. Oz’s Transformation Nation Million Dollar You challenge. Here’s a step-by-step program that will empower you to be the healthiest you can be—and you could even win a million dollars!
You told us: “Give me more health advice that I can use every day.”
Now Sharecare has packed even more simple get-healthy strategies into our weekly newsletter called The Pulse (sign up here for Transformation Nation and you’ll get the e-newsletter for free). From energy boosters to headache cures, the Pulse has healthy news to use right away.
You told us: “Answer more of my tough health questions.”
That’s why Sharecare gathers the best content partners in the world, all in one place, to be at your beck and call—no appointment needed. We’ve got American Red Cross and AARP and hundreds of other top-notch doctors, medical associations, hospitals and specialists ready to answer any health question you can think of. Because we know that even though you’re always talking health with that woman sitting next to you at the salon, sometimes only an expert will do. So go ahead and ask—and they’ll answer.
And don’t forget to keep talking to us. We’re all ears.
