Feb. 8, 2011 - PRLog -- PatientsVille.com, the leading on-line health portal, announced today a
collaboration effort with the research group from Rutgers and Thomas Jefferson
University aimed to help identify unmet needs for users of medically-related social
media sites. "PatientsVille is pleased to provide support which will benefit
patient and research communities and gives PatientsVille users additional ways to
express their opinions." said Tanya Miroff, Chief Executive, PatientsVille.com

Dr. Irene Wang, a post-doctoral fellow from Rutgers University and one of the four
creators of the research project, states:  "We are striving to determine the needs
of various end-users who visit  medically-related social media sites, in hopes of
not only increasing awareness, but potentially providing substantial value to
improving this new generation of web-based healthcare."
