Give your coverage a shot in the arm with turnkey health and wellness news from HealthDay and TownNews

Health news is having a moment (a bit more than just one moment, unfortunately). But even pre-pandemic, health and wellness content was a reliable driver of traffic and engagement for local new organizations. The problem for most newsrooms is a lack of resources and expertise to satisfy this consumer demand.

To address this, TownNews has teamed up with HealthDay—the world's largest health news service—to provide news organizations using TownNews' industry-leading digital publishing platforms with high-quality health and wellness content.

As part of the new agreement, HealthDay will deliver 15+ research-based stories into the TownNews Content Exchange Network every business day. Physician's Briefing, a news service for medical professionals consisting of brief article summaries from hundreds of peer-reviewed medical journals, and Spanish-language health content will also be provided.

HealthDay will deliver 15+ stories into the TownNews Content Exchange Network every business day.

Participating news organizations will have the option to hand-pick stories to import and share on their sites, or automatically pull in all articles to create engaging, low-maintenance health news hubs.

"Many newsrooms have on-staff expertise in areas like local news, politics, and sports," said Jeff Carney, senior director of content programs at TownNews. "Having a health and wellness editor is often unrealistic. This new partnership with HealthDay gives users of the TownNews Content Exchange Network easy access to top-shelf health news."

HealthDay content will be available via the TownNews Content Exchange starting December 13th, 2021.
