Introducing the 2012 update of Health E-News, the e-newsletter of Bastyr Center for Natural Health.
In summer of 2011, many of you responded to our reader survey and told us what you enjoy about Health E-News and where we had room to improve. We appreciate your honest input. Based on your feedback, we have made some changes to the layout and content of Health E-News. The major updates are explained below. Thank you for reading!
Direct Links Every issue now includes a menu bar along the top and bottom to give you quick access to relevant information on the Bastyr Center website.
Prominent Health Tips You asked for additional natural health tips, so now you will find quick, take-away tips in every issue.
"What's New in Natural Medicine?" The field of natural medicine continues to grow by leaps and bounds, and you let us know that you prefer more frequent news and information. Each issue will now include at least one article highlighting recent research and/or advancement in natural medicine.
Hot Topics Every issue can't answer all of your questions about natural medicine, so now there is a dedicated space in each issue for "Hot Topics." Here you'll find links to additional articles about health topics that are currently trending in the Bastyr community, in the news or across the internet.
New, Cleaner Layout By now you have undoubtedly noticed the new layout. The new design aims to sharpen Health E-News by using bold, solid colors arranged in a straightforward grid. The articles are stacked vertically to make the information more visually appealing and easily accessible.
Improved Mobile Viewing Many of you reported that you view Health E-News on your phone, so we made the newsletter easier to read and navigate on smaller screens.
Our goal is continued improvement and evolution. If you have further suggestions, please let us know by emailing
