Dowden Health Media: 20 Years and Growing
Date:11/13/2008

MONTVALE, N.J., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Dowden Health Media's beginnings were reflected in an article written by Janelle Yates that appeared in Issue number 1 of the Dowden Dispatch an employee newsletter, which published in the winter of 2005. Following are excerpts:

According to Mark Dowden, one of the founders of Dowden Health Media, the inspiration for the company originated one morning in 1988, as he stood in his parents' kitchen chatting with his father, Carroll V. Dowden.

Carroll suddenly said, "Here's an idea: What would you think of quitting what we're doing and starting a publishing company together?" At the time, Carroll headed several groups of publications at Cahners.

Although Mark asked the usual questions about timing, financing and other logistics, he was far from uncertain: "I had already made up my mind the moment he asked the question: Yes, let's do it!"

And so a star is born! The birth of OBG MANAGEMENT, Dowden Health Media's first journal. More from Ms. Yate's article:

With encouragement and financial backing from Lew Miller, who had once been Carroll's boss, father and son set up shop in Spring Valley, New York, and launched OBG Management, a journal for obstetrician-gynecologists. Miller is a principal of WentzMiller and Associates, consultants in global and US Continuing Medical Education.

Father and son wrote most of the first issue of OBG Management. The journal was well received (as it continues to be), the financial picture was promising, and the team envisioned a "family" of journals for different physician specialties.

Family nurtures growth, development and change, Ms. Yates explains:

The emphasis on family was no coincidence. In addition to Mark and Carroll Dowden and Lew Miller, other principals in the venture included Amy and Laura Dowden, Carroll's daughters, who joined the company in 1990.

In 1992, the company became profitable and launched HealthWords for W
