    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!

I am part of Professor Ellen Langer's lab (our website: http://www.wjh.harvard.edu/~langer/


    We are trying to reach out to the Cambridge/Boston asthma community in case there are individuals interested in participating. If you would like to join, please contact me at harvardresearchstudy1@gmail.com , and I will forward you further information on the study, which pays $40 for 4 hours of participation.


    Thank you so much and we hope you'll consider joining!


    Warm regards,
