NEW YORK, Jan. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Jumo Health, a global provider of age appropriate, personalized health care resources, is proud to announce that it has been selected as a finalist for the Sharecare Awards, an annual program which honors the creators of best-in-class productions and programs that promote well-being and embody the spirit of "sharing care." Established in 2019 in association with The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, New York Chapter, renowned for the Emmy Awards, the program aims to inspire and elevate the individuals and organizations whose creative use of media are empowering people around the world to live healthier.
For the second consecutive year, Jumo Health has been recognized for its excellence in health-related programming. This year, Jumo Health has been selected as a finalist in the Cancer category for its Understanding Immuno-Oncology video. Developed in partnership with Bristol-Myers Squibb, the video helps improve patient understanding of immuno-oncology treatments by using 3D CGI-animation to show the mechanism of action.
"We are honored to be recognized with this diverse group of organizations that has come together to increase health literacy," said Kevin Aniskovich, President and CEO of Jumo Health. "Health care is no longer reserved for the exam room, and the information provided to empower patients and their care circle to make informed decisions is now also presented by storytellers with names such as ESPN, NFL, and CNN. At Jumo Health, we provide resources to help change health care today. We believe education plays a critical role in the entire patient journey from diagnosis and clinical trials to treatment and disease self-management. When more organizations take a prominent role in the education of patients and their care circle, such as the ones Sharecare and the Academy recognize today, we ensure that patients have the best possible chance to meet their desired outcome," concluded Aniskovich.
