From Healia (Medical Students to Answer Your Online Health Questions for Free)
April 3, 2009
Healia and the American Medical Student Association (AMSA), the nation’s oldest and largest independent association for more than 67,000 physicians-in-training, announced this morning that AMSA medical students and interns/residents are answering the public’s online health questions for free on Healia Communities. Trained medical students will answer common health questions anytime and at no cost to consumers.
According to the Pew Internet&American Life Project, between 75% and 80% of American Internet users have looked for health information online.
There are many online Q&A websites but very few of them are appropriate for answering health questions because their members are seldom qualified health professionals. In contrast, the health Q&A service on Healia Communities shows the profiles of those who have posted answers to questions; all medical students or interns/residents have been verified by AMSA.
The free online health Q&A service is available immediately. Sign up and submit your health questions at Healia Communities.
