The Sharecare Awards was launched in 2018 to promote and reward excellence for the best productions and programming in health and wellness. Diveheart is one of 16 winners in the second annual Sharecare Awards across categories spanning various media formats and health topics.
Entries were judged by the Sharecare Awards Academy of Judges – a curated team of leading healthcare and media professionals with expertise in each of the competition categories. The Sharecare Award in each category was determined after a second round of judging by the deans of the Academy of Judges and a committee of additional experts, a media release from Diveheart explains.
“In today’s health environment, the impact of creative content and programming that spark awareness and action is more evident than ever, and we’re proud that this year’s Sharecare Award winners represent the industry’s most impactful productions that are making a difference.
“By elevating the contributions of this year’s winners, we hope to inspire others within the industry to effect positive change and outcomes by illuminating the most important health issues facing our world today.”
