    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

    Today I volunteered at a HIV clinic and I loved it! June 13th I walked out of my job after 12 years. I had to take a look at my life and see what is important to me. Hiv/Aids is what is important to me. The clinic and the workers are amazing. Thank you God for putting me where I need to be. I want to help people and let them know that they are not alone. I truely believe with my heart and soul this is where I am meant to be. My heart is full. Can't wait to go back tomorrow! Thank you again God for putting me in the right place.
