It gives us an exciting new channel to fulfill our mission to provide trusted advice for a healthier life.
Boston, MA (Vocus) October 14, 2010
Harvard Health Publications, a division of Harvard Medical School, announces the launch of its new Harvard Health Blog. The Harvard Health Blog will feature posts from both Harvard Medical School physicians and Harvard Health Publications’ newsletter editors.
“Blogging is an opportunity for us to disseminate credible health information and communicate with the public about important health issues,” says Anthony Komaroff, M.D., editor in chief of Harvard Health Publications. “It gives us an exciting new channel to fulfill our mission to provide trusted advice for a healthier life.” Michael C. Miller, M.D., editor in chief of the Harvard Mental Health Letter and one of the regular bloggers, echoes, “It allows our physicians and editors to comment in a timely fashion on breaking news stories and medical breakthroughs. We’ll be able to provide readers with perspective and analysis they may not find in mainstream media.”
In addition to Dr. Miller, also contributing regular blog postings are P.J. Skerrett, editor of the Harvard Heart Letter; Peter Wehrwein, editor of the Harvard Health Letter; and Ann MacDonald, editor of the Harvard Mental Health Letter. Posts will cover a wide range of topics including heart disease, weight loss, exercise and fitness, mental health, and stress reduction. “What’s exciting for me,” says Ed Coburn, publishing director of Harvard Health Publications,” is the back-and-forth communication with our readers; not only to write for them, but to have them write to us with their comments, questions, and concerns.”
