As you may have noticed, Demos Health has a whole new site, and we've become the first trade health publisher to offer an expert-driven, media-rich health and lifestyle website.

The website still offers award-winning books for sale, but is now also a rich portal for easily accessible information and insights on living well with a specific health condition or disability, providing support for a loved one with a health issue, and improving daily life with smart approaches to diet and fitness. Among other topics, the new offers expert information on multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, stroke, epilepsy, spinal cord injury, diabetes, and cancer. Users can browse articles, blog posts, videos, and FAQ boards, among other resources, for information about health conditions, as well as on how to live a fuller, healthier life.

Much of the information on also comes from experts who not only have daily clinical experience with the condition, but have personally had or currently have it themselves. In addition to more general information, they share personal stories and specific, everyday-life advice. One of these experts is Lucinda Porter, the author of Hepatitis C Treatment One Step at a Time, and a hepatitis C advocate, nurse, health educator, and patient. “The new Demos Health website,” Porter commented, “transforms my work into a virtually limitless platform from which to raise awareness about the condition, and offer tips and insights from my book, blog posts, tweets, videos, and website. Through these channels, Demos Health provides a variety of ways to communicate with readers, offer updated news and research, and connect with people who are hungry for facts, support, and hope.”

Julia Pastore, Executive Editor at Demos Health, agrees. “At Demos Health, we’re committed to empowering people to be active participants in their own health and live healthier, more fulfilling lives. This website provides an additional way for us to meet this commitment.”
