    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Try Wellapets beta, a new asthma education mobile game!

    LifeGuard Games has just launched their first app, Wellapets, in beta! Wellapets teaches asthma management to kids age 6-11 through a little fire-breathing dragon who wants to blow fire like its friends but can't because it has asthma. It's up to kids to care for the dragon in much the same way they care for themselves, ultimately teaching their pet to blow fire, unlocking new rooms and minigames. Our game is somewhat similar to Club Penguin or Moshi Monsters, and will be for all iOS and Android phones and tablets. Finally, our design features input from pediatric asthma specialist physicians in Boston.


    We currently seek beta testers to try a prototype of our game on their tablets or phones and provide feedback. To sign up, go to: http://tflig.ht/15MjeM6
    then, visit www.testflightapp.com from your mobile device and you'll be set for when our beta is posted early in January.

    Please send any questions or comments to co-founder Alex Ryu at alex@lifeguardgames.com
