McLean, Virginia (PRWEB) August 09, 2011

NavigationArts, a strategic web consultancy, is pleased to announce the launch of a dynamic medical education portal for the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). MedEdPORTAL is a free, open education resource and was designed to promote educational scholarship and collaboration by facilitating the open exchange of peer-reviewed health education teaching and assessment resources. Currently, more than 10,000 health education institutions are utilizing MedEdPORTAL resources – representing over 190 countries around the globe.

NavigationArts was specifically engaged to redesign and rearchitect the existing site, which was not leveraging the full capabilities of a content management system and provided no opportunity for content reuse. The new information architecture delivers an optimized user experience, creates opportunities to reuse and share content, and lays a foundation for a suite of products that change the traditional way of accessing and utilizing health education materials. MedEdPORTAL’s flexibility provides extraordinary possibilities to customize and promote content through a multi-faceted, socially enabled learning experience.

AAMC Chief Academic Officer, John E. Prescott, MD, notes, “MedEdPORTAL has played an increasingly prominent role in the education of the healthcare provider of tomorrow. I have no doubt that these new enhancements will result in significant benefits to students and educators, and ultimately improve the health of the public.”

In addition, MedEdPORTAL has partnered with the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) in order to peer review and publish oral health content. The website redesign allows for interface customization while maintaining the full capabilities and accessibility of the MedEdPORTAL website and repository. The ADEA-customized MedEdPORTAL will launch in August. This new structure aims to accommodate partnerships with the remaining allied health professions to further drive inter-professionalism and innovation in health education.

C.K. Foods Inc. and CK Nutritional Ingredients Announce The Launch of Re-designed Corporate Website

C.K. Foods Inc. and CK Nutritional Ingredients Announce The Launch of Re-designed Corporate Website











Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) September 30, 2009

Canadian consumers of dietary supplements and natural health products are entitled to have access to products that are proven safe and effective in human clinical trials. This can be a challenge, as there are various products and brands on store shelves that utilize ingredients that are of inferior quality and that lack good science. Toronto-based raw material supplier CK Nutritional Ingredients (http://www.ckfoods.com/nutrition.html) is looking to change this and it has recently updated its corporate website to reflect new products that are based on extensive scientifc substantiation.

“There is no question that the majority of the public would prefer to take natural supplements to treat various ailments and to boost their overall health,” says Michael Chernyak, Managing Director of CK Nutritional Ingredients. “If the natural products industry is to survive and even thrive, it absolutely must produce supplements that are proven safe and effective. From a commercial standpoint, the temptation to formulate products with unsubstantiated low-cost raw materials can be significant, but in the long-term it will undoubtedly cause considerable harm to the industry as a whole.”

CK Nutritional Ingredients has taken great care in seeking out and selecting vendors who are focused on quality, science and innovation. Preference is given to proprietary ingredients that have been the subject of at least one well-designed human clinical study, and that deliver benefits that consumers can feel. “Supplement users want products that are experiential,” states Jim Bornhold, Director of Sales for the company. “Whether it’s a formulation that boosts energy, reduces stress, enhances mental clarity or alleviates joint discomfort, it’s critical that the product deliver a benefit users can feel. This will go a long way toward ensuring repeat purchase and ongoing loyalty to natural health products.”

CK Nutritional Ingredients’ business model is centered on the representation of branded, evidence-based nutraceutical raw materials in the Canadian market. It partners with U.S. and international ingredient developers who wish to maximize their penetration of the Canadian market without having to dedicate significant resources do to so. It is a model that is proving to be effective – four leading non-Canadian vendors have come aboard, and negotiations are in progress with several more. “We are always on the lookout for innovative suppliers who are committed to good science and who want to establish a strong presence in Canada,” added Chernyak.

This is all good news for Canadian supplement users. Expect to see an increase in the number of products on the market that improve health and wellbeing, and have the science to back them.
