Harvard Health Publications Launches New Consumer Website

Harvard Health Publications, a publishing division of Harvard Medical School, announces the launch of its redesigned and enhanced website to serve the needs of health-conscious consumers in search of trusted health care information.  The new health.harvard.edu offers easy accessibility to the current practical, authoritative health information, drawing on the expertise of the 8,000 faculty physicians at the Harvard Medical School and its world-famous affiliated hospitals.

“When I became a doctor,” said Dr. Anthony Komaroff, Editor in Chief and a 35-year Harvard veteran, “most patients wanted the doc to tell them what do.  They didn’t ask ‘What are my options?’  Today, there’s an appetite for information and a desire to be partners with the doctor in decision-making.  That’s why it’s important that patients get their health information from credible, trusted sources.  Our mission at Harvard Health Publications is to offer the consumers access to information that will help them make better health choices,” said Komaroff.

The new website offers the latest health news from Harvard Medical School, and excerpts from its monthly health newsletters.
