Netwellness 2000 Is Launched

Cincinnati—NetWellness®, the Internet consumer health information site, has a new look called NetWellness 2000. "NetWellness 2000 has been created because the web world moves at warp-speed," says Roger Guard, chairman of the NetWellness Editorial Board. Along with the redesign, NetWellness 2000 offers numerous new features.

The nationally recognized Ask an Expert service, in which 200 health professionals from the University of Cincinnati, Case Western Reserve University, and The Ohio State University answer questions from consumers, has been expanded. "The number of topics will soon top 40, and it will continue to expand," says Stephen Marine, NetWellness Program Director. "Our experts respond quickly to questions, normally within two or three days, and they respond to ALL questions." The 1999 Best Doctors in America included 30 NetWellness Experts.

NetWellness 2000 also features links to nearly 1000 other health web sites, which NetWellness Experts have evaluated using the Criteria for Assessing the Quality of Health Information on the Internet by the Health Summit Working Group. "Our university experts develop state-of-the-art content. They also have evaluated thousands of web sites, selecting only the very best for NetWellness to link to. Our visitors can be assured they are getting reliable information," says Susan Wentz, MD, NetWellness Director at Case Western Reserve University.

These changes don't stop with NetWellness 2000. New content is added daily, and NetWellness listens to its visitors' suggestions. "We're here to fill health information needs. We read every feedback message, and we respond directly to each. Based on these suggestions, we add new features and services continuously," says Susan Kroll, NetWellness Director at The Ohio State University.

 

NetWellness is dedicated to improving the health of Ohioans and people worldwide through scientifically sound, high quality, and unbiased information.
