Get Answers to Your Health Questions When You Need ThemDate: April 21, 2011
Eight in 10 Internet users have looked online for health information, whether it’s to research symptoms or get support in caring for a loved one. Johns Hopkins Medicine has teamed with a new consumer health Web site designed to gather the collective wisdom of many different health organizations in one place, making it easier for you to get the answers you need.
The site, sharecare.com, comes from, among others, physician and popular television personality Dr. Oz. Visitors can explore health topics presented in an intuitive Q&A format, covering subjects that run the gamut from diabetes to infections to brain tumors. Sharecare.com gives you convenient access to vetted health knowledge from Johns Hopkins experts as well as videos and books by Johns Hopkins clinicians, and reminders about Johns Hopkins online seminars and other events.
