About us

Bakesalebetty.com has created an organization that we believe fulfills the promise of health information on the Internet. We provide credible information, supportive communities, and in-depth reference material about health subjects that matter to you. We are a source for original and timely health information as well as material from well known content providers.

The bakesalebetty.com content staff blends award-winning expertise in journalism, content creation, community services, expert commentary, and medical review to give our users a variety of ways to find what they are looking for.

And that, we believe, requires dedicated, full-time staff professionals with state-of-the-art expertise in:

  • Health news for the public
  • Creating and maintaining up-to-date medical reference content databases
  • Medical imagery, graphics, and animation
  • Communities
  • Live web events
  • User experience
  • Interactive tools

Our board-certified physicians, award-winning journalists, and trained community moderators are solely dedicated to your daily information experience on bakesalebetty.com. Our content staff includes individuals who hold advanced degrees in journalism, medical illustration, health communications, clinical informatics, nursing, and medicine. Bakesalebetty.com verifies the qualifications of all medical professionals on the site; including health professionals, experts, editorial professionals and contributors with a specialty license. Health Professionals, including those who write, review and edit our editorial content as well as Community Experts, undergo credential verification by a third party.

 

Most of us at bakesalebetty.com Health have spent our entire careers dedicated to helping people find the health and medical information, support, and services they need — even before there was an Internet! We are dedicated to providing quality health information and to upholding the integrity of our editorial process.

As serious as we are about credibility, we also know that at times, health information can and should be engaging, exciting, and entertaining.

We pride ourselves in knowing our audience’s needs and delivering the most appropriate experience. We know that there is a difference between using a health site for health “performance” issues (e.g., flat abs) vs. health research needs (e.g., “What is type 2 diabetes?”) vs. community support (e.g., “Does anyone else feel like me?”) vs. e-commerce. Our mission is to fulfill all these needs in the most appropriate ways possible.

We are committed to improving our site. We will continue to publish even more content, communities, and services to help make your life better, to help you find your way when faced with healthcare decisions, and to help you feel better about your health and that of your family.
