Web Health Awards℠ Winner
Association is Honored in Winter/Spring 2011 Web Health Awards(SM) Competition
website of the Interstitial Cystitis Association (ICA), www.ichelp.org, was selected as a winner in
the 13th annual Web Health Awards(SM) program. This competition
recognizes the nation’s best digital health resources.
“We were delighted to
participate in the 2011 Web Health Awards competition, and were honored to be
selected as a Bronze winner,” said Barbara Gordon, RD and Executive Director of the
Interstitial Cystitis Association. “Given
our modest web development budget and the outstanding team effort that goes
into this resource, it is a real accomplishment to be chosen.” The ICA was
picked from more than 500 entries
judged by a panel of experts in digital health media.
“The ICA website plays a vital role in providing
current health and research information to IC patients, researchers, healthcare
providers and the community at large. We believe that the ICA website is the
most comprehensive source of IC information in the world,” noted Gordon. “The site also includes extensive information
in Spanish, as well as basic IC information in other languages.”
The Web Health Awards
program is organized by the Health Information Resource Center(SM), a
national clearinghouse for professionals who work in consumer health fields.
Other well-known HIRC programs include the National Health Information Awards(SM)
which annually recognizes the nation’s best consumer health programs and
materials (for non-digital resources), the National
Women’s Health & Fitness Day® and the 15th annual Family Health & Fitness Day USA®.
