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.

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
