We are the team behind this site. We feel very fortunate to be able to work on a project that can make a real difference in helping people to live their lives happily.
Inspire was created in 2005 by a group of friends. We were each dealing with important medical issues in our families, and we found that while the Internet was a useful source for authoritative medical information, it was not a safe, welcoming place for us to find support.
We created Inspire to change all that. We envisioned a place where we as patients, caregivers, family and friends could support one another, and where we could do so in a safe, secure, privacy-protected environment.
We are dedicated to building the best online health communities possible. Like our community members, all of us have faced health challenges of our own - and we know from personal experience how valuable the support and encouragement of others can be.
Our tagline, 'Together We're Better', is at the heart of what we do.
