Startup PlateJoy sends users personalized meal plans to help them achieve health goals |by Zach Winn | 22 November 2018

Quote from text
“We’re building a new category to bridge the gap between medicine and the modern consumer,” Bognet says. “The PlateJoy approach isn’t to build a sterile, prescriptive health care company. It’s to use cutting-edge research and combine that with a consumer brand that people are really enthusiastic about.”

First mapping of cells in the early human placenta to advance research on problem pregnancies  |  22 November 2018

“The placenta is a profoundly important yet poorly understood organ. It is essential for life and, for our time in the uterus, functions as the lungs, kidney, liver and immune system. Yet, its structure and function are still very much a mystery.”

Quoted from the article and by Zev Williams, chief of reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility at Columbia University Medical Centre

Every morning and evening I was posting several links to a variety of online newspapers and thought that maybe I could post from here via newsletters, our website/blog,  instead.

This is to ensure that all the news and stories go out to everyone that follows us across the social media platforms that we have profiles/accounts.

There’s a few links to my favourite online newspapers for finding a variety of health related news from other Chronic Illness Bloggers & Warriors, for up to date news about health conditions such as latest research papers or people sharing hints and tips about how they cope day-to-day.

Let us help them by showing our support by sharing the news and stories that they share.

If you publish a health related paper.li or other health news magazine/paper that isn’t listed and you would like it to be, please contact me – Carole Sian at fibroflutters@gmail.com or use the form below and let me know, always happy to help 🙂

With a model approach using all the ‘stakeholders’ I’ve designed a patient’s perspective of what patient-centred care, patient-included, patient-involved, patient-centric should look like and involve, that’s everyone by the way! 

You all need to pitch in!!

Please note that I have opted-in to receive all the newsletters that I post from and also please remember to read the privacy policies.

  • Also, due to the excessive amount of newsletters landing in my inbox, and my haphazard sleep cycle, not all will get updated daily!
  • If you like what you read PLEASE remember to share and opt-in
