HHS announced a nine-month pilot project to disseminate consumer health information produced by its agencies through a channel on WebMD. The information, from HHS agencies such as the CMS and the Food and Drug Administration, also will be available through WebMD partner sites. HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson said the collaboration will "greatly expand our ability to empower Americans through the Web to improve their health and prevent disease."
