We are very excited to announce the launch of the Social Health Network! The Social Health Network is a community for patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals with the goal of bringing empathy, support, and humanity to the healthcare industry. Learn more about the Social Health Network and all of the incredible benefits, such as, networking opportunities, free online courses, a weekly newsletter, and more.

What is social health?

We define social health as the dynamic, real-time action people take to find meaningful connections and share information that impacts the health journey. Our extensive research in social health and the patient experience, and continued patient leader partnerships, have given us the perfect opportunity to launch the Social Health Network – a community for patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals with the goal of bringing empathy, support, and humanity to the healthcare industry.

“Social health is sharing our stories to support each other. It’s a reminder that we are not alone in our struggles.” – Social Health Network Member Gabrielle

You can expect to see increased rewards on the platform (we’re exploring gift card integration), more compensated opportunities (we’re just getting started with influencer campaigns) and expanded ways to increase your knowledge as a health leader (educational opportunities for you to be seen as the expert you are) as we grow together. We are so appreciative of this community and look forward to this next chapter.
