Date:2/12/2008

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As health care continues to be a crucial issue in the upcoming election, The HealthCentral Network, Inc.'s (http://www.HealthCentral.com) interactive health issues tool -- HealthCare08 -- has been a credible tool for voters to determine which candidate aligns with their personal views on several health care issues. Now, washingtonpost.com has chosen the tool for its online Health section, adding to the site's comprehensive political coverage.

HealthCare08 (http://www.healthcare08central.com) is a groundbreaking interactive tool that shows how users' views compare to those of the 2008 presidential candidates, offering information about key health care issues and explaining why the issues matter. Controversy behind stem cell research and the nuances of universal health care are a few of the issues explored by health policy experts and those living with life-changing conditions such as diabetes and migraine.

"HealthCentral has created an incredibly useful interactive tool detailing candidates' healthcare positions that we are delighted to share with our readers," said Jim Brady, Executive Editor at washingtonpost.com.

"We are excited to be recognized by washingtonpost.com," said Chris Schroeder, CEO and President of The HealthCentral Network. "The Web site's interest shows the credibility and usefulness that this tool provides to voters concerned about health care."
