Beta Feedback

People are already talking about Sidekick.

“Sidekick to me is like a librarian at the New York Public Library, just multiplied by 100. It's like asking the most knowledgeable librarian you've ever met, 'Hey, I have this question.' And then the person is like, 'Here, you need this book. And not just this book, but this page, and this thing on that page. And you know what, we'll put it together for you.'”
"I used to work in data fluency in my former life. And in data fluency, it's: access, understand, and use. Rinse and repeat. So often we'll hear from people, 'Okay, I have it and I still don't know how to read it or analyze it, or you know, what does this mean?' That's what Sidekick unlocks, real advocacy."
“What I love about Sidekick is that it prevents me from having to bother our epidemiologists to find something. They have their own projects and work, and sometimes, to be honest, it's like the night before and I need it the next day. So the ability to get personalized answers like that—this is what I was hoping it could be like.”
