Interest Heats Up In BlackDoctor.org, Nation's First Health Portal For African Americans
Chicago, IL (BlackNews.com) - BlackDoctor.org is gearing up for a busy 2006 as African Americans - along with physicians, dentists and others in the healthcare community - discover the health portal for African Americans.
"The buzz has been just phenomenal," says publishing and Internet entrepreneur Reginald Ware, who launched BlackDoctor.org last fall. "It just confirms that there was a dire need for this product. It's fitting that BlackDoctor.org is getting attention as we enter February and celebrate Black History Month. Historically, Blacks have suffered disproportionately from many diseases and conditions. It's a good time to acknowledge that Black health needs specialized attention, which is what we provide. We work to change African-American views on health and healthy living."
Launched November 15, 2005, BlackDoctor.org is already fielding nearly 200,000 visitors per month. A unique presence in the marketplace, the web site is chock full of health information that is of specific interest and concern to African Americans, including articles such as "The Top 10 Killers of African Americans," a diabetes risk test, and the country's first Soul Food Pyramid, which was developed by Roniece Weaver, executive director of Hebni Nutrition Consultants and diet and nutrition editor of BlackDoctor.org
