Date:6/28/2009

Diseases and other medical conditions do not respect fame or fortune. This new web site, produced by a team of doctors and powered by a new medical search engine, satisfies the public's appetite for celebrity news while also meeting their needs for trusted health information in an accessible format that explains the medical meaning behind the headlines.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 28, 2009 -- Did a dangerous combination of prescription painkillers contribute to Michael Jackson's sudden death from cardiac arrest? What does this case have in common with the recent deaths of other celebrities such as David Carradine and Danny Gans?

Curious minds now have a reliable new way to find out, and learn more about their own health in the process. Celebrity Diagnosis (http://www.CelebrityDiagnosis.com) is a new resource of user-friendly medical and health information that combines the power of celebrity with our natural curiosity and concerns about personal health, to increase knowledge and understanding of important health issues. It provides blog-style immediacy with reliable and authoritative information in casebooks provided by a new type of medical search engine.

Celebrity Diagnosis was created by a wife and husband team of physicians, who have trained, taught and practiced at some of the top medical schools in the U.S. including Harvard, Johns Hopkins and Washington University in St. Louis. "Our mission is create a series of Teachable Moments in Medicine" to increase health awareness and health literacy.

Most news about medical conditions lacks sufficient detail and pointers to authoritative and reliable information to genuinely inform the public about causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Celebrity Diagnosis provides that deeper level of knowledge that is becoming increasingly necessary as our healthcare system undergoes fundamental shifts that make consumers ever more responsible for their own health.

Celebrity Diagnosis regularly publishes short articles on diseases and other medical conditions that are currently in the news, taking advantage of the power of celebrity to capture the attention of consumers with opportunistic learning styles. The site features stories about uncommon people from the worlds of art and entertainment, sports, business, government and politics, science and technology who suffer from medical conditions that can affect anyone.

A unique feature of Celebrity Diagnosis stories are casebooks provided by http://www.ResoundingHealth.com. These casebooks contain essential information from authoritative sources in a convenient package that a reader can link to, email to a friend or print out and take to their next doctor's appointment. Celebrity Diagnosis currently features casebooks on stress and heart disease, cardiac arrest, drug abuse and poisoning by demerol, oxycontin and dilaudid, toxicology and domestic violence. Recent stories feature celebrities such as Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, David Carradine, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Walter Cronkite.
