BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – MyMedWall.com has announced that “Smoke/Tobacco Free Brevard,” will be their first 2013 health and wellness campaign in Brevard County.
“Our goal is to achieve at least 50 ex-tobacco users this year in Brevard alone,” said MyMedWall.com co-founder Dr. Geetha Priyanka.
Statistics show 27.8 percent of the population in Brevard smoke, which is four percent above the national average.
“The tobacco companies spend $936 million on marketing in Florida,” said Dr. Priyanka. “And the statistics also show one out of every five deaths currently in the U.S. is related to smoking – and it is the leading preventable disease in the America.”
MyMedWall.com – likened to a “medical facebook” – is a complete medical “home” for patients, allowing them and their providers to combine social networking with the exchange of vital healthcare information.
Using a unique implementation of social networking concepts to actively engage a patient to maintain their personal health record, MyMedWall securely connects and shares health data with their medical service providers, participates in support groups and reviews educational medical information specific to their health needs.
