Some events are once-in-a-lifetime and just have to be observed. Here at Highlight HEALTH, we’re coming up on one of those events: our five year anniversary!
To celebrate this milestone and to give something back to our readers, for the next three months we’re holding a prize pack giveaway.
Highlight HEALTH launched back in late December 2006 and from the very beginning focused on the science of health, reporting on research, providing background and analysis, and explaining how research results affect you, the healthcare consumer. To compliment Highlight HEALTH, we launched the Highlight HEALTH Web Directory six months later. By the end of 2007, The Highlight HEALTH Network was born. We’ve been growing and improving ever since (if you’re interested in new ideas impacting health and medicine, check out the recently relaunched Highlight HEALTH 2.0).
To celebrate five years of biomedical research reporting at Highlight HEALTH, from now through the end of February 2012, we will be giving away four prize packs every other Saturday, starting on January 14th.
Five Years of Highlight HEALTH: the Prize Packs
Here at Highlight HEALTH, we promote advances in biomedical research and offer background/analysis on scientific studies so that readers can understand how new treatments and emerging research could affect them. We also encourage health literacy to improve health self-management. We’ve carried these same themes over to our prize packs.
