    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

    Need A Health Hero?
    Emma_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Who is your health hero? Each year, WebMD the Magazine honors four Americans who have an extraordinary, true-life health story to tell. Past winners faced a serious health challenge, then gave back to others in an inspiring way. Do you know someone like this? Who is a candidate? Patients, doctors, nurses, and family members who met a medical diagnosis or condition with courage, underwent or gave treatment, and then helped others in similar situations will be given top consideration. To make a nomination, write up a brief summary of his or her true story and submit to us no later than Friday, August 14, 2009. Read about our past Health Heroes winners make a nomination. We look forward to reading about your candidates!
