Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) February 15, 2009
KC Healthcare Communications (http://www.kc-health.com) announces the launch of a social media community and radio show, RealWomen on Health! (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/realwomenonhealth) to support and connect women to become their own best wellness advocates. The first 30-minute show, themed "Myths & Misperceptions: Take Charge of Your Sexual Health and Well-Being" features conversation and commentary between RealWomen on Health! blogger and wellness consultant, Kelley Connors, MPH, and Lisa Martinez, Executive Director, The Women's Sexual Health Foundation (http://www.twshf.org). The social media radio show provides women with the real facts behind the misunderstandings that keep women from taking charge of sexual health, a topic that is frequently hyped in the media, especially around Valentine's Day. The first show launched on Saturday, February 14th is currently available for downloading via iTunes.
The web-based women's wellness radio show goes beyond information delivery to provide women with on-line chat and real time support from women's health researchers, experts in women's health and healthcare professionals. "Our mission is to support and encourage women to take charge of their wellness, become their own advocates, and support others in the process. Industry research shows that rising numbers of women are using social media much more than men, and in their efforts to connect socially, we want to make sure that credible health experts are inserted into their community conversations", says Ms. Connors.
According to research, over 34% of women use social media to obtain health information. With hundreds of new medicines and products in development for women, KC Healthcare Communications welcomes support from consumer packaged goods companies, health publishers, educational facilities, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and women's wellness centers for high quality content that is leveraged widely on the web to directly connect with women.
