Our Story

Caretalk will be the first clinically reviewed, updated online community for patients, families, caregivers, and experts.  Our mission is to empower patients and caregivers about their condition, starting with Type 2 Diabetes and Alzheimer's Disease.

We’re founded by the team at Clinical Research IO, a company that makes clinical trial software for researchers. Part of the goal of Caretalk is to inform patients about clinical trials and opportunities to participate in research, but the main focus is on building a strong patient community that is more informed about their care in general.

Our team is hard at work building the website, but you can sign up now to be a part of a small group of people who shape Caretalk!
