Healthwise Offers Free Shareable Coronavirus Resources

New Coronavirus Resource Center provides consumer-friendly health education

BOISE, ID, April 6, 2020—Healthwise, a leader in evidence-based health education, has launched a Coronavirus Resource Center on their website. For over 45 years, Healthwise’s mission has been to help people make better health decisions. Giving people the right information to stay healthy is more important than ever in the face of a global pandemic like COVID-19.

There is still much the medical community does not know about COVID-19, and misinformation can create panic and interfere with public health efforts to manage the outbreak. Healthwise has created English and Spanish versions of several free resources on the symptoms, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19. Once downloaded, these resources can be printed out, emailed, texted, embedded on a website, or posted on social media.

“Our hearts go out to all those impacted by COVID-19. Our focus is, as always, on the health of our employees, clients, and communities,” said Adam Husney, MD, CEO of Healthwise. “We’ll continue to provide free resources to inform people about COVID-19.”

Healthwise is dedicated to helping people stay healthy. Join with them in making our community’s wellness our number one priority.
