Throughout my career, I’ve been in awe of the power of media in all forms, and especially inspired by those who leverage its power for good. That’s why one of my proudest moments was the culmination of the first-ever Sharecare Awards, which celebrates exceptional organizations and individuals committed to spotlighting today’s most critical health issues. But what was most exciting was what it represented: a new tradition of celebrating those who tell impactful stories, raise critical awareness and ultimately spark changes that transform lives for the better.

I’m delighted that today, the second annual Sharecare Awards season officially launched on the heels of a successful inaugural year. On behalf of the entire team at Sharecare and the New York Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, we look forward to experiencing, once again, the inspiration that the industry’s best productions and programs are bringing to the masses. With new categories like Addiction & Recovery and Social Influencers in Health & Wellness, we are thrilled to grow our winners’ circle by recognizing those who are not only addressing today’s most pressing health issues, but also using innovations in tech and media to engage people and influence positive change.

Again this year, we’re inviting all creators and supporters of health- and wellness-oriented productions to join us by sharing their best work from the past year. The Sharecare Awards are now accepting entries at www.sharecareawards.org through Friday, October 31, and this year’s program will culminate on March 26, 2020, when we’ll announce and celebrate our 2020 winners. Whether you choose to share your work with us or simply join us in celebrating the industry’s best, we can’t wait to commemorate another impactful year of “sharing care” with you!
