    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,

    New video provides valuable heart information

    Did you know that your heart is the strongest muscle in your body? That it completely circulates your blood every 20 seconds? That your circulatory system is 62,000 miles long?

    We?ve gathered some amazing facts about the heart and put them in a video called A Heartbeat Away to demonstrate what a powerhouse you have in your chest and how important it is to keep it healthy.

    We urge you to watch it, learn from it and share with your friends.

    We encourage you to tell everyone you know about this important video. Let?s make our community heart smart.

    Thank you!
