The digital age has made it easy for consumers to research their own health but also easy to get lost in the flood of information—and misinformation—that the Internet provides. Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Medicine came together to cut through this noise by collaborating on a new consumer-driven magazine called Johns Hopkins Health Review. The first issue was published in fall 2014.
The magazine guides readers in 100,000 households through an informed and intelligent conversation about health from not just the traditional physical perspective but also the health of your brain, your family, and the planet. Since its launch, the twice-yearly magazine has explored the mechanics of the common itch, offered suggestions about how parents can have honest and proactive conversations with their children about sex, and has provided a handy user’s guide to the common cold.
