ShopWell and Kwikee Partner to Help Consumers Make Better Nutrition Decisions

ShopWell and Kwikee Partner to Help Consumers Make Better Nutrition Decisions











Peoria, IL (PRWEB) July 28, 2011

Today’s consumers are striving to eat healthier, but most are time-constrained and confused about the multitude of options available. Additionally, people have different nutrition needs and concerns, so it’s important for consumers to be able to customize their food choices to their specific needs. Now people can make better eating decisions using a website or mobile app that caters to their specific needs and uses a reliable source of nutritional data to ensure the information they get is accurate.

ShopWell, a free food information site and mobile app, lets shoppers create personalized profiles that include their specific health goals, conditions and/or preferences, and then scores products and provides easy-to-read product information. Foods are scored by ShopWell’s team of registered dieticians, Stanford University statisticians and engineers who evaluate foods on an ongoing basis.

“Consumers are increasingly concerned with health issues, but product information can be difficult to obtain and decipher,” said Brian Witlin, Co-Founder and CEO. “ShopWell’s goal is to help people make better food choices—quickly—using reliable information that is customized to their unique situation.”

A key issue for ShopWell and similar industry initiatives is the lack of verifiable product information consumers can trust. ShopWell selected Kwikee, a solution by MultiAd, due to its unique business model where manufacturers such as Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods, Unilever and ConAgra sponsor SKUs for product photography and data collection. All of the content in Kwikee is provided by and approved by consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturers, making it a reliable source for accurate product information. The retail trade has free access to the content in Kwikee, with ShopWell taking the process one step further and employing Kwikee’s XML delivery to receive dynamic updates of product content on a daily basis.

About ShopWell Solutions, Inc.

ShopWell Solutions, Inc. operates shopwell.com, a free, food information and personalized nutrition website that helps consumers make thoughtful choices about the groceries they buy and eat. ShopWell is the only free, personalized nutrition resource online, providing easy-to-understand nutrition information to help make healthy eating simple.

The company was spun out from design consultancy IDEO in 2009. ShopWell is based in Palo Alto, California.

Mental Health America and Psych Central Partner to Create Online Mental Health Social and Information Network – New Site Will Offer Trustworthy Information for Consumers

Mental Health America and Psych Central Partner to Create Online Mental Health Social and Information Network – New Site Will Offer Trustworthy Information for Consumers










Newburyport, Mass. and Alexandria, Va. (PRWEB) June 20, 2007

Mental Health America (http://www.mentalhealthamerica.com), the nation’s leading non-profit mental health organization, and Psych Central® (http://www.psychcentral.com) today announced that the two organizations are partnering to create a comprehensive online mental health social and information network. Planned for launch later this year, the partnership will create the nation’s leading network to provide consumers with the most credible, trustworthy and high-quality mental health information and community on the Internet.

“With an increasing number of people turning to online resources for mental health information, there needs to be reliable content supported by established organizations,” said David L. Shern, Ph.D., president and CEO of Mental Health America. “This partnership will bring quality content to a growing network of people promoting mental wellness and result in additional clarity for those who seek trusted mental health information online,” said Shern.

The partnership will feature content from both organizations, including daily news articles, research briefs, book reviews, interviews with leading experts, online community forums, and more. The portal will also enable consumers to personalize content based on their needs. For example, if someone is interested in depression, he or she will be able to sign up to receive this custom content delivered daily.

“We’re extremely proud to be able to partner with Mental Health America for this effort,” said Dr. John M. Grohol, Psy.D., founder and publisher of Psych Central. “For more than 12 years, Psych Central has been helping to break down the stigma related to mental health issues through its online efforts. This partnership is the next step in support of that cause. Together, we’ll integrate the best mental health information and help grow a community while providing new ways for people to connect with each other,” said Grohol.

According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, more than 25 percent of Internet users search for mental health information online. This increased interest along with the growing number of choices for consumers to receive mental health information, it’s never been so important that sites maintain strong ethical standards and adhere to stringent privacy policies.

Psych Central has been consistently recognized as one of the top resources for mental health and psychology information online serving more than 600,000 visitors each month with more than 10,000 pages of content. Mental Health America, formerly known as the National Mental Health Association, has a network of more than 320 affiliates nationwide that support the awareness and support of mental health issues.

About Psych Central

Psych Central®, located at PsychCentral.com, is a leading mental health portal that features original, peer-reviewed editorial content, news, research briefs, clinical trials, ratings and reviews of medications and treatments, the popular World of Psychology blog, and a thriving online support community. Each month more than 600,000 people visit Psych Central’s independent libraries and communities, contribute to their own blogs, take an interactive screening quiz, and track their progress over time. Founded in 1995, Psych Central is published by John M. Grohol, Psy.D., a pioneer and expert in online mental health. Dr. Grohol’s leadership helped to break down the barriers of stigma often associated with mental health concerns, bringing trusted resources to the Internet.

Psych Central does not provide professional diagnosis or treatment.

About Mental Health America

Mental Health America is the country’s leading nonprofit dedicated to helping all people live mentally healthier lives. With our more than 320 affiliates nationwide, we represent a growing movement of Americans who promote mental wellness for the health and well-being of the nation – everyday and in times of crisis.
