People are seeking Health+Wellness solutions
More than 80% of Americans have turned to the internet to seek answers to their Health+Wellness questions, resulting in over 1 Billion health searches each day on Google.
But web browser searches only yield results based on who has the best SEO strategy, and in recent years search engines have come under scrutiny for contributing to the spread of misinformation, making it increasingly difficult for consumers and quality health resources to connect.

This Month's Featured Synapse Resource...
We're celebrating Cervical Cancer Awareness Month with one of our trusted resources.
According to the CDC, in 2019 (the latest year for which incidence data are available) in the United States, 12,795 new cases of Cervical cancer were reported among women, and 4,152 women died of this cancer. For every 100,000 women, 8 new Cervical cancer cases were reported and 2 women died of this cancer. Yet cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers today. In most cases cervical cancer can be prevented through early detection and treatment of abnormal cell changes that occur in the cervix years before cervical cancer develops.
The National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC) was founded in 1996 as a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to serving women with, or at risk for, cervical cancer and HPV disease. In 2011, NCCC merged with American Sexual Health Association (ASHA), a nonprofit with a long history of educating and raising awareness on sexual health issues. NCCC now has thousands of members around the world, and chapters across the U.S.
Free materials that educate about HPV and cervical health, including cervical cancer.
Tools for prevention, detection and screening awareness.
Quilt project – Quilts that travel the country and help to place a personal face on the battle against cervical cancer.
