The Best of Highlight HEALTH 2008 – The Year in Review

Reading time: 4 – 6 minutes

As Highlight HEALTH celebrates its second year promoting advances in biomedical research to encourage health literacy, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued readership.

Three websites make up the Highlight HEALTH Network:

Each of these sites has a different purpose. Here at Highlight HEALTH, we focus on evidence-based biomedical research to educate readers and empower patients (if you’re interested in contributing, please let us know). Highlight HEALTH 2.0, a group effort, follows the use of Web 2.0 in health and medicine. Lastly, the Highlight HEALTH Web Directory is an online reference guide for reliable health and medical information.

There are more ways than ever to connect with the Highlight HEALTH Network, including email/RSS, Twitter and Facebook. If you have an internet-enabled cell phone, Highlight HEALTH can be accessed via the mobile web.

If you enjoy the articles here at Highlight HEALTH, I’d like to ask for your continued support.

… and above all, please continue to read and participate.
