    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Health Nuts Media is developing a wonderful pediatric asthma education app. They need some help to get this into your hands

    Here is more info:

    Between HNM and Blausen, we've already created much of the content that will be featured in this first app, including hours of video, hundreds of illustrations, tons of interactive 3D models, and loads of other cool stuff.
    Health Nuts Media makes complex health issues easy to understand — and fun! — with the combined efforts of its Emmy Award-winning writers, directors, animators, actors and designers with some of the brightest and most tech-savvy doctors, nurses and educators in the world. Blausen Medical creates award-winning 3D animations which combine stunning visual drama with unwavering scientific accuracy.
    The money we raise for this app will go to create this chocolate/peanut butter powerhouse combo for health learning that is actually fun for audiences of all ages. We will be using lots of our great content and are creating three (3) BRAND NEW GAMES to help people better understand asthma, anatomy, and how to take care of themselves.
    These games are fun with a purpose!
