    @avicena Avicena The greatest discoveries in health and nutrition have been made in the last 5 years, but a growing and ubiquitous delay in the flow of information exists today.

    It is vitally important to disseminate knowledge of major new discoveries, due to a minimum of 10-20 years of information gap between the research labs and the medical practice.

    Unfortunately, Wikipedia has a policy of refusing to deal with new discoveries, as far as I know. Also, the language Wikipedia uses is not easily understood by undergraduate students.

    I functioned as a university librarian and I can volunteer to be a founder together with others who have research and/or clinical experience in this area.

    @kyx Kyx Many people become ill or diseased due to a lack of knowledge of nutrition, so this is a very important subject. I like to think that this being on Socratic would make an impact (however small) on the world.
    I am very interested in nutrition since it has an impact on everything we do. In my aim to become cleverer, I research nutrition to find out which foods would be best to achieve this goal, and help with memories.

    @atray-tiwari Mr. Doc I like the topic or subject health and nutrition as it is included in Biology and also this subject deserves a lot of concern and attention. In my earlier answers I have written many of them which are related either to body or the things related with it such as importance of oxygen etc.


    It deserves to be on Socratic because its Socratic's aim to answer the questions asked by the growing learners and the learners are now very much concern about their health and the right nutrition for their body so they ask a variety of questions which are about H & N and the questions get mixed up with others and don't get chance to be answered so their should be a special branch on Socratic which may be for the learners for H & N. Thanks :-D

    @chic33 chic33 Hi, I am Favour, and I would like to be a founder. The majority of diseases and illnesses in today's society, occur from malnutrition or bad health habits. I am hoping to contribute through this site to help people become better informed about health and nutrition.

    @sarah-c-7 Sarah C Hello! I would love to research and learn about health and nutrition ready to teach people. I have a good baseline knowledge from studying biology and physiology for around a year. I love all things to do with the human body (blame my medical family!) so would love to keep expanding my comfort zone with Health and Nutrition.

    @danisarah Danisarah Health and Nutrition can prevent people from diseases. People should know how important it is to consume nutrients from healthy food because there are so many deficiency diseases that cause people lack of energy and leads to chronic deseases.

    @danisarah Danisarah I'm Sarah. I'm a public health student. H&N deserves to be on Socratic because there's still a disparity between public and knowledge of nutrition benefits.

    @corey-j Corey J. Hey my name is Corey, I'm a senior in college and hoping to become an occupational therapist in training. My exercise science degree plan has given me a lot of foundation knowledge in health and nutrition, for the general public as well as athletes. Health and nutrition are under-emphasized in the academia world outside of specific degree plans but deserve the same footing as other subjects. I think we will see a growth in the health and nutrition field in the coming years as the baby-boomer generation ages and needs care, Socratic should be ready for it.

    @david David Y. Hi friends! I'm a humble health/nutrition enthusiast, and I'd love to help kick off the subject on Socratic! I enjoy cycling, bouldering, swimming, and weight training. I haven't studied nutrition, but I'm ready to contribute by doing research and citing my sources. Let's do this!

FAQ

How are new subjects launched?

By the community! (With support from the Socratic team.) To launch a subject on Socratic, you need a founding team of eight people who are committed to building and supporting the subject through its critical early days.

Once eight founders have signed up, you will form a team that collaborates to grow and nurture the subject using a live version of the site. You will write the subject's first featured answers and recruit other contributors. Most important, you will lead by example by participating often and encouraging others to do the same.

Once the founding team has built a foundation of helpful answers and a healthy community of supporters, the subject will graduate, meaning it will join the ranks as a designated Socratic learning resource. We'll also design a beautiful subject badge to make it official!

Who can be a subject founder?

Anyone who knows a lot about Health and Nutrition can become a founder. Why? The Socratic community values passion, diversity of opinions, and commitment over credentials.

Alongside your knowledge, your passion to share and spread Health and Nutrition with students everywhere should be your driving force. This is what will help your subject succeed!

Why should I become a founder?
  • Be one of eight people building a shared resource that will reach more than a million students every month. Now that's legacy.
  • Connect and collaborate with brilliant people around the world who share your passion. Find your tribe.
  • Earn credibility and status, online and off. Add it to your resume! Founding a subject will keep you sharp, and can even help in your professional life.
  • Have fun. Building something you're proud of feels pretty darn good.
When I sign up to be a founder, what am I committing to? I'm not sure I have time.

New subjects need a foundation of helpful answers and, most important, continuous participation from passionate folks. As a founder, you will:

  • Ensure that your founding team creates at least 20 featured answers that represent that very best in your subject
  • Participate often and encourage other team members, so that you meet your shared goal of high activity days (days on which 8 or more people contribute)

No matter who you are, life is busy and unpredictable. That's why there are no individual or time-based requirements for subject founders. You can contribute to your shared goals anytime, from anywhere - so long as you make an active effort to support the team and push the subject forward.

Can I invite friends to be founders?

If you know someone who would be a great founder for a new subject on Socratic, you can — and should! — invite that person by sharing the link to this page with them, and encouraging them to sign up.

Inviting a friend to join you on the founding team likely means working with someone you already respect, which'll help establish trust amongst the team early on. Trust = better outcomes and more fun.

I would love to see Health and Nutrition on Socratic! Can I get involved without becoming a founder?

Yes! To help get Health and Nutrition launched on Socratic, you can:

  • Recruit others (know a potential founder?) and spread the word (share links with interested friends or online groups you're part of)
  • Contribute early answers — anyone can write answers, even if you're not a founder
  • Ask some of the first questions (if you're studying this subject or want to learn about it)
  • Get to know the founders and chime in with support and encouragement
