Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) is pleased to announce that it has joined with Sharecare as a content collaborator to provide accessible, comprehensive information to the celiac disease community. Sharecare is an all-encompassing health and wellness engagement platform that provides people with personalized resources to help them live their healthiest lives.
“We are thrilled about our partnership with Sharecare, which will provide Celiac Disease Foundation a dynamic platform to continue to educate and raise awareness of celiac disease,” says Marilyn G. Geller, Chief Executive Officer of Celiac Disease Foundation. “The Sharecare platform will offer another outlet through which we can provide guidance, information, and support to the celiac disease community.”
Epidemiology estimates that celiac disease affects 1 in 100 people worldwide, and three million Americans. As only one in six Americans are properly diagnosed with celiac disease, education and awareness are critical to ensure that the undiagnosed receive a more timely diagnosis in order to avoid long-term health complications.
Celiac Disease Foundation’s presence on Sharecare will expand the reach of celiac disease experts and availability of resources. CDF’s content on Sharecare aligns with its mission, providing information regarding advocacy, education, and research. Moreover, the Sharecare platform will help further the mission of Celiac Disease Foundation by allowing people to learn, ask questions, and review pertinent information about celiac disease. Sharecare creates an active community where information is shared and advances are made in knowledge and understanding.
Sharecare is a health and wellness engagement platform that provides people with personalized resources to help them live their healthiest lives. Nearly 40 million people have shared more than 5 billion data points about their health status and habits with Sharecare, which uses that information to create a comprehensive health profile allowing users to access all of their health resources in one place, and dynamically connect to the knowledge, evidence-based programs and health professionals they need. Created by Jeff Arnold and Dr. Mehmet Oz in 2010, Sharecare’s predictive and personalized platform is accessed daily by millions of consumers, including viewers of The Dr. Oz Show, patient populations of the country’s leading hospital systems and every Soldier in the United States Army.
