New York, NY (PRWEB) October 22, 2008
HealthWorldWeb.com has earned the Merit award from the WWW Health Awards in the Patient Education Information category. The site is also set to launch local communities for every metropolitan city in the United States.
Only two months after the Personalized Recommendation Engine was announced, HealthWorldWeb is again in the news. This time for an award of Merit. The World Wide Web Health Awards (http://www.healthawards.com/wwwha/ss2008winners/pe_web.htm) honors health related sites every year for their exemplary work online. Past and current winners include WebMD and the National Institutes of Health. This year, HealthWorldWeb was honored to be named a Merit award winner in the field of Patient Education Information.
Daniel Kogan, CEO of HealthWorldWeb is humbled by the announcement of the award. "We understand the large pool of online health care websites that compete for the World Wide Web Health Awards each year. To be honored in the same category as WebMD and Healthwise is something we could never have imagined so soon after our launch. This is just the beginning for HealthWorldWeb, we have a whole new experience in store for users who want to integrate social networking with the Health 2.0 experience."
At the same time as the announcement came through about the World Wide Web Health Awards, HealthWorldWeb was gearing up to launch local communities for every Metropolitan city in the United States. The local communities will be a gathering place for people to share their health care experience and review doctors in a local area. This wide scale community launch is aimed at helping people to find connections to health care services and providers in their local area.
Founded in 2006, Health World Web -- http://www.healthworldweb.com/ -- is a health-focused social networking site that serves as an effective interactive medium that allows people impart their versatile knowledge to diverse users who care about their health.
