WEGO Health: expert-supported health communities
I’m working as a community moderator for a new expert-supported health website, WEGO Health (http://www.wegohealth.com). My user name is “Julia”, and I’m the host for the Women’s Health and Sleep Disorders areas. I also help out with the Depression & Anxiety and Mental Health areas, and anywhere else I’m needed.
WEGO Health was created by Jack Barrette, a former Yahoo! executive focused on lifestyles, health and medicine. At Yahoo!, and throughout his career in healthcare, Jack has seen millions of people struggle to find credible, useful health information online. WEGO Health was born as a result of these experiences.
We are working hard developing the WEGO Health website. We recently launched our message boards and I wanted to invite you to join in the community. The boards were launched in advance of the corresponding content areas of WEGO Health, which are under development. You’re among the first to see the message boards, so we would very much appreciate your feedback and participation.
