    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,

    Dear Readers,

    Here is a link to some information about MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) that you may find helpful.

    MRSA is becoming more and more common and it is important to understand the nature of the illness and what it means so that you can treat it appropriately. While it can be dangerous, it is usually handled with alternative medications and preventing it from spreading.

    Best,

    Dr. Evans.
