We're happy to announce the launch of a new tool here at WebMD that we think our members will enjoy -- WebMD Answers .
While community is a place to get to know your fellow members and experts on a deep and supportive level, sometimes folks just want to ask a question and receive an answer. That's what WebMD Answers is all about.
Do you have friends that you've tried to get to join you here in community, but they feel they don't have the time to spend? Maybe Answers is a tool they can use for quick access.
Anyone can ask a question, and anyone can answer a question. Experts, partner organizations, staff and moderators will also be responding to some questions.
We invite you all to go in and check it out today. If you have any questions about this new tool, post them here and we'll try to help you out.
The WebMD Magazine's editors are now collecting nominations for our 2012 winners. Please submit your entry by Friday, August 17. It's easy -- just go to our Health Heroes page (www.webmd.com/healthheroes ) to find the nomination form.
Once there, you can also read about past winners -- we choose about four to six each year, and all receive a check to donate to their favorite health foundation or charity. They also appear in both the November/December 2012 issue of WebMD the Magazine and digitially on WebMD.com and the WebMD the Magazine iPad app.
Who's a hero? He or she can be a doctor, nurse or patient who has in some way dealt with a serious health challenge, then given back to others in an inspiring way.
We look forward to reading your nominations!View Thread
