Date:11/30/2009

Sponsored by Merck, the unique online and mobile tool empowers patients to be active participants in their HIV treatment decisions

ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- TheBody (www.thebody.com), the #1 HIV/AIDS resource online, today launched My Health Tracker, an online and mobile tool offering HIV/AIDS-infected patients the ability to save, track and analyze their medical data. The tool, created with sponsorship from Merck, is available at www.thebody.com/tracker and is able to be updated through text messaging.
