One of the keys to Wellsphere’s success is the breadth of knowledge across its network of experts and experienced health writers, and within its caring community. Wellsphere’s network of writers and bloggers includes almost 1,500 of the leading medical minds from Stanford, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Yale and other top Medical Schools, as well as patients facing difficult diseases who bravely share their stories of survival. Wellsphere is extremely selective in admitting writers into its network, ensuring that they are highly credible, eloquent, and caring. By creating such an extensive writer network, Wellsphere is able to connect users with a variety of personal and medical perspectives on any health issue.
In addition to expert and patient articles, WellPages present a holistic view, including relevant news, articles, videos and pictures from reliable sources ranging from the FDA and Harvard Medical School to leading health and fitness magazines. Instead of having to spend hours visiting many different websites to get a complete answer to their health concerns, users can instantly get a complete picture within seconds.
*Harvard, Stanford...and little old me-lol*
Let me just say that they are using not only one of the most intelligent marketing strategies I have ever seen by continuously motivating their bloggers with things all bloggers love-badges, pins, awards, but they have truly created a powerhouse of an informative site on gazillions of topics in health care, including a Hearing Loss community. Rachel, Drew's Dad, Tiffani-Riley's Mom and Abbie are a few of the other bloggers picked up by their site.
So...when I received this little email, I was very excited:
We are excited to recognize you in our new YES, WE CARE! Campaign that honors everyday heroes, like you, who put themselves on the front lines in the quest for a healthier, happier world by spending their time and putting their hearts and souls into helping others in need. We’re particularly excited to have this chance to honor you, for dedicating your time and writing to help people improve their health and well-being. We've nominated YOU as one of our Everyday Heroes!
They requested that I send them a video...(thanks to Val, I was able to do this-my very own first attempt at closed-captioning-Rachel will be proud)
Note: When I asked my husband what it felt like to sleep with a hero...he just rolled his eyes. ROTFL.
