Leading Women's Health and Wellness Site Declares April as Prevention and Wellness Month

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - April 5, 2010) -, a health media company for women, is providing its visitors with a healthy new dose of breaking news and helpful articles on prevention and wellness topics that will help women get well and stay well. In recognition of its new, expanded range of content, the company has declared April Prevention & Wellness Month on

EmpowHER's prevention and wellness content is free to all visitors via a special prevention and wellness resource page. The articles featured cover topics such as: quick and fit meals on the go, ways to naturally treat anxiety, exercise tips that can speed up weight loss and tips and tricks on how to avoid pain from sports injuries.

Prevention and wellness in the U.S. is also a concern for government. In fact, the U.S. Recovery Act provides $1 billion for prevention and wellness to improve America's health and help to reduce health care costs.

EmpowHER users began requesting more prevention and wellness content late last year prompting the company to expand beyond its original 'health condition' content focus in order to meet user demand. 

"EmpowHER has one of the largest woman to woman communities dedicated to health and wellness on the Web. When our users tell us they need more, or less of something... we listen," said Kevin Gralen, vice president, Operations for EmpowHER. "The launch of this new content is just the beginning. By the end of this year, our goal is to have more than 50% of the content on our site pertain to prevention and wellness. EmpowHER serves healthy women looking to stay that way as well as women who have health challenges they need help with," confirms Gralen.

"April is the first full month of spring, a season of rebirth and renewal; so, it also seemed fitting to launch this new prevention and wellness content on EmpowHER in April," says Michelle King Robson, Founder and Chairman of EmpowHER. "Women are eagerly looking for ways to prevent illnesses they are concerned about and stay well, and we are so pleased to present them with these exceptional new resources to help them do just that. I hope that women can use this information to help them to not only live but thrive."
