I am a blogger for Wellsphere, an online health site. Wellsphere’s mission is to help millions of people live healthier, happier lives by connecting them with the knowledge, people and tools they need to manage and improve their health.
A key feature of Wellsphere is their WellPages. After extensive research and development, Wellsphere created WellPages, which enable people to quickly and efficiently find comprehensive, personal answers and support for their specific health needs — all on one personalized webpage. In addition to expert and patient articles, WellPages present a holistic view, including relevant news, articles, videos and pictures from reliable sources ranging from the FDA and Harvard Medical School to leading health and fitness magazines. Instead of having to spend hours visiting many different websites to get a complete answer to their health concerns, people can instantly get a comprehensive picture within seconds. Powered by Wellsphere’s Health Knowledge EngineTM, WellPages provide the unique ability to quickly and efficiently answer people’s specific health needs, and has made Wellsphere.com one of the leading consumer health websites in the world.
Another key to Wellsphere’s success is the breadth of knowledge across its network of experts and experienced health writers, and within its caring community.
Wellsphere’s HealthBlogger Network consists of over 3,000 writers and bloggers and includes leading medical minds from Stanford, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Yale and other top Medical Schools, as well as patients facing difficult diseases, who bravely share their stories of survival. Wellsphere is extremely selective in admitting writers into its network, ensuring that they are highly credible, eloquent, and caring. By creating such an extensive writer network, Wellsphere is able to connect people with a variety of personal and medical perspectives on any health issue.
I recommend browsing their site and perhaps joining the online community, you can even search for writers or professionals in your immediate area. You can find the communities you are interested in, subscribe to writers that interest you and connect with others who have similar interests. I write for the "Healthy Living" community.
The other day I watched a video presented by Wellsphere, it is rather lengthy but I found it interesting to hear the presenter state many of the same facts and recommendations that I make throughout my blog.
We all learn differently, some of us can comprehend facts better when presented by a speaking person than just a written document. I do recommend taking the time to listen to this.
The speaker is Lisa Brisse, founder and owner of State of the Heart Fitness in Santa Monica, California.
