Genesys offers free online Health & Wellness information

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Today, people surf the Internet more for health information than sports scores, stock quotes or online shopping. To ensure the community receives credible health information online, Genesys has introduced a new Health & Wellness section on its website - www.genesys.org.
The new Health & Wellness area is part of the organization’s commitment to keep members of the community well informed so they can take better care of their own health.

The Health & Wellness section features health libraries that include information on a wide range of health topics, such as:
  • Common surgeries and procedures
  • Diseases and conditions
  • Nutrition and healthy eating, including an online cookbook
  • A drug reference guide that allows users to search for information by “pill identifiers” such as shape, marking, color and taste
  • Interactive quizzes, calculators and risk assessments that engage consumers in their own health management – examples include body mass index (BMI) calculator, a calorie burn rate calculator and a heart quiz for women
  • Daily features including the latest health news and a “health tip of the day”
  • Health content directed specifically to men, women, parents and older adults
  • Health management information covering blood pressure, smoking, stress, weight and mental health
  • Tactics for managing health conditions including asthma, healthy pregnancy, heart disease, cancer, diabetes and chronic pulmonary disease

“We are committed to providing community members with the health information they need to make good decisions for themselves and their families,” says Chris Gleason, Genesys Marketing director. “Our new Health & Wellness content will provide them with information they want in a form they can retrieve at any hour of the day or night.”

In addition, Genesys also has launched a new version of their email newsletter - E-WellBeing. The newsletter, which is free, is available to anyone who has an email address.

E-WellBeing offers a variety of articles on various procedures and services at Genesys - backed by patient testimonials. The email newsletter also provides information on educational programs and events at Genesys. Genesys distributes E-WellBeing on a bimonthly basis to those who sign up. To subscribe to the email newsletter, visit the Genesys website at www.genesys.org and click the “free monthly e-newsletter” button.
