AboutKidsHealth partners with Canwest to provide trusted health information

By Beata Rydyger

AboutKidsHealth.ca, a world-leading family education website developed by The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), is set to feature a weekly series of articles written by SickKids’ child health experts on Canwest’s national network of websites. The network includes well-known news sources including canada.com and websites for the network’s 10 major newspapers such as vancouversun.com, calgaryherald.com and montrealgazette.com.

“The goal of AboutKidsHealth is to provide families with reliable, current information about all areas influencing child health and family quality of life in a format that is easy to understand,” says Dr. Ross Hetherington, Director of AboutKidsHealth. “Our new partnership will extend the reach of this important information to millions of readers through Canwest’s distribution network.”

The first articles will feature the topic that is on everyone’s mind – H1N1. You’ll find in-depth, family-friendly articles about the virus, developed by AboutKidsHealth and Dr. Upton Allen, Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases and senior scientist at SickKids.

The series can be found at www.canada.com/sickkids.
