"This is an exciting time for EmpowHER," says Michelle King Robson, Founder, Chair and CEO of EmpowHER Media. "Our growth has been driven by the explosive demand among women for our engaging peer health community and gender-specific health information and advocacy resources. Thom and Jamie have helped prepare EmpowHER to capitalize on new market opportunities. By aligning their responsibilities and internal resources, we are prepared to execute our long-term strategic plans and do more to help HER."

In addition to oversight for the company's Board of Advisors and management of its leadership team, Ms. Robson will continue advancing women's health advocacy as a media personality through broadcast television and radio partnerships; original programming on EmpowHER's own, soon-to-be-launched branded Web TV platform -- EmpowHER TV, and patient advocacy education.

Brodeur will focus on strategy, product, content and community, and corporate development. In this capacity, Brodeur will work with the CEO on EmpowHER's corporate strategy and capital development efforts, while overseeing the Company's shift from a health information publisher to a comprehensive social health platform for women with offerings in Web, mobile, social and gaming for women's health, wellness and lifestyle.
