At SurroundHealth, Members share their knowledge and best practices, resources, and the latest news and events. This helps all of us find new ways to support the individuals and communities we serve.
Health Topics is a great place to start your search for knowledge and connections. You can find articles, resources, discussions, and news and events on a wide range of topics. And you can trust that the information is accurate and credible, because all postings are monitored by our Community Manager, an MPH, CHES.

Prior to launching SurroundHealth in April 2011, we interviewed and surveyed health professionals from varied backgrounds, professions, and geographic areas. We found that regardless of discipline, many of them faced similar challenges when it came to effective education and communication. And with the rise of social media and online sources of information, health professionals found it increasingly difficult to stay in the know. They wanted an online community that made it easy for them to connect with others, gain knowledge, and discover new resources and best practices. Our interdisciplinary community helps us all think in different and innovative ways, and we will continue to evolve based on the feedback and needs of Members.
