Social Network Links People Living With The Same Health Conditions
Curatio is a social app that helps people manage and talk to peers about their similar chronic conditions
Perhaps one of the most difficult aspects of having a chronic condition is that it can be lonely. Without a network of people who truly understand what you are going through, the experience can be isolating. Curatio is a social app that hopes to relieve this issue by being part Tinder, part Facebook for a health-related cause.
The idea for Curatio came from a startup competition in 2013; it has recently been revamped to serve 10 different health communities. The app connects you to others who have the same health experiences or symptoms. Similar to a news feed on Facebook, once you connect with a network of people on Curatio, you will see perspectives and updates from people dealing with similar issues.
