    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

    What do you think? Please take a moment to vote in our poll: Does Prayer Help Others Heal?

    Not many Members are aware of our Spirituality: Path to Healing Community , but it is a great place to share your prayers and support with those who need it and receive that gift in return.

    I hope you'll take a minute to stop in and say hello. I'll be looking for you since I moderate that community too!

    Don't forget to vote in the poll while you're there!
