    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,

    Watch Dr. Beckerman on the Dr. Oz Show!

    Want to see our own Dr. Beckerman on Dr. Oz's show? Tune in this Friday, March 25th to see his segment.

    You can use the Dr. Oz Locator to find your local station's air time (This is not a WebMD link and we cannot guarantee content).

    Let us know what you thought of it once you've had a chance to watch it. I know I'm planning on it.

    I just watched the program last evening. My wife TiVo'd it. Bless her heart. :-)

    Excellent show (Preventing the Hidden Threats of Monday Morning), especially the segment about ant-thrombotic (anti-blood clotting) spices.

    Great job Dr. Oz and Dr. Beckerman.

    Thanks so much for checking it out!
    Byroney_WebMD_Staff responded:
    Like CardioStar, I had a chance to see it too and very much enjoyed it! I hope you'll let us know when you have future appearances.

    For anyone who is interested, you can see some of Dr. Beckerman's videos on his FlexDiet YouTube page (this is not a WebMD site and we cannot guarantee content). My favorite is the New Year's Resolution-a-Month one.

    CardioStar, I knew it had been too long since I last checked in with you. Congratulations on your marriage!

    Last time I asked, the engagement had been extended, and I am delighted you moved forward with the happy event.

    I'm sending you a belated helicopter cake with my best wishes,
