Further, Health Power is now recognized by #Google as the leading source of health information for minorities worldwide. It is primarily focusing on four major health issues that are called “The Big 4”- diabetes,obesity, hypertension, and heart disease, because each condition often has a positive or negative effect on one or more of the other three conditions. Related health and wellness lifestyles and health practices are an associated focus.

The easily accessible online Resource Directory provides key information on more than 80 other organizations, and our #blog posts, which promote sharing of health information, experiences and opinions,are organized in alpha order for easy selection.In addition, the site has 25 well-recognized and culturally competent contributing editors and advisors with expertise in health, medicine and minority/multicultural health. Further, there are 20 cross-linked organizational web partners with more health information for minorities.The site now also provides easily readable and understandable information on the #Affordable Care Act, or #Obamacare.
