November 2007 NEWSLETTER               www.medhelp.org

Over the last few months we have been rolling out a lot of features as well as a new look. We are now ready to upgrade our forums! I'm sure many of you are asking why we need to do this. Well, the single biggest request we get is to better connect all of the different content on our site (Health Glossary, Forums, Member Journals, Member Profiles and even our upcoming Drugs Database). We're doing three things to address this; we've added Tag Pages (see below), we're upgrading our forums, and we will be improving our Search. Our Forums will now include a right hand column that will contain content related to the discussions. You can click here for a preview of what the new forum is going to look like. We’re about this coming change but would love to hear what you think. Below, we’ve included a link to a survey so we can get your feedback and suggestions. Thank you for your help and we appreciate your patience as we make these changes.

Stay healthy.

pounds:

- Eat with your eyes, not with your fingers. Much of the enjoyment of a meal comes from seeing a beautiful spread and the wonderful aroma that wafts from the

table. Try to focus on how much you enjoy the beauty and scent as you eat. Slow down and savor your mouthfuls.
