Revolution Health Lauches College Health website

September 10, 2007

Last week, Revolution Health launched a unique offering targeted to the college age demographic. The site includes information on mental health, STDs, birthcontrol, and healthy eating and sleeping. There is even a section for parents who may worry about their child’s health more than the student.

Special features seem to have an emphasis on mental health, such as, a mental health fair and crisis hotline. There is also an email newsletter on romance which appears to focus on young women and a safe drinking calculator.

The site covers the major concerns of college students.  In the past, most surveys showed an older demographic using health information websites. But Revolution Health, with its Web 2.0 interface, may successfully attract this hard to reach group.
