Health care specialists and the media can now learn, at one source, from experts to separate the media-enhanced hysteria from the real facts, and researchers have a targeted outlet to share their findings with the world.

Michael J. Hennessy Associates, Inc., a full-service health care communications company offering education, research and medical media, has launched Contagion®, a fully integrated digital news resource for practitioners and specialists working in infectious diseases.

As the all-inclusive resource for infectious disease information, Contagion features the latest news, scientific research studies, original articles and commentary directly from leading experts, as well as conference coverage and video interviews with experts in the field. What sets Contagion apart from other news resources is that Contagion's editorial board provides an active forum for the world’s top infectious disease experts to come together to guide print and website content to impact future infectious disease practices.

“New threats in infectious disease, such as Ebola and the current Zika pandemic, have emerged over the past decade,” explained Dr. Jeff Prescott, SVP of operations and clinical affairs at Michael J. Hennessy Associates, “and continuing research has produced innovations such as insights into the antiviral properties of interferon-induced transmembrane proteins and the role they play in preventing HIV, and breakthrough medications that produce near-total sustained virologic response across Hepatitis C virus genotypes.

“These and other ongoing developments prompted a need for a single resource for health care specialists working in infectious diseases that can help them learn from experts while staying up-to-date on current news and scientific research. Health care specialists and the media can now learn, at one source, from experts to separate the media-enhanced hysteria from the real facts, and researchers have a targeted outlet to share their findings with the world.”
