I wanted to pop in and thank you all for the welcome. I realize I have been quiet, but I have been checking in, I promise. Now what I'd like to do is get to know those of you on the board.
Can you post to this thread and tell me a little bit about you, how far along you are, boy/girl, and if you have other kids? (If you don't feel comfortable sharing too much, it's totally fine.)
Here's some info about me:
* Working in online community for 13 years. * Working for WebMD for 10 years. * Mom of three -- daughters, 20 & 18 and a son, 14. * Married to an avid fisherman. So...fishing widow. ha * Love to garden. * Love to SCUBA and just be on the water. * Have a dog, two cats, two rabbits and a hedgehog (see profile picture) living at my house. * Live in Florida * Just finished decorating my house for the holidays and it's two days before the big day.
We are excited to announce that WebMD and Sanford Health are creating web destinations designed to educate kids on the importance of being fit, living a healthy lifestyle, and how to go about making real healthy changes.
These new entertaining and educational resources are being designed with guidance from experts in child health, education and entertainment with a goal to involve kids themselves in the creation!
Your child and other kids you know can be part of the creation of these innovative new resources while we're still in our design phase by taking this survey within the next 7 days!
The survey is designed to get the opinions of kids (8- 18 years old) on the interface, language and concepts in development. It also provides opportunities for the kids to give their own free-form comments.
We encourage you to ask the children you know to participate in this survey. Parents are welcome to take the survey too, and their feedback will be evaluated separately from the kids.
Just go to the web address provided below and submit the group password provided.
