New York, NY--(HISPANIC PR WIRE)--February 26, 2007--The Spanish-language health monthly “Médico de Familia” launched today its website (http://www.medicodefamilia.org) in order to offer online users the same unique health editorial being delivered to over 20,000 Hispanic doctors’ offices and waiting rooms throughout the country. These physicians also write many of the articles featured in the magazine, which features a bright, modern design, easy-to-understand Spanish and is based on the physicians’ experience in the frontline of community healthcare.
Beyond providing a digital outlet for the magazine’s monthly content, the new interactive venue will allow the magazine’s editorial staff to feature breaking news that affects the quality and scope of healthcare available to the Hispanic community. The free site, a collaboration between Medico de Familia and Hispanic Digital Network—the leading provider of Hispanic newspapers online—provides state-of-the-art hosting, advertising infrastructure and third-party reporting to assure online marketing that is efficient and verifiable.
According to “Médico de Familia” Publisher Neil Porter, other features being developed include physician blogs, live Q&A chat with doctors, and a semimonthly e-newsletter. “We are also planning to post an English-language version of the site. Since our magazine is written for the entire family, we want to make it possible for everyone in the family, be they English or Spanish-speakers, to access this important health information.”
