Praxeon (www.praxeon.com), a leader in healthcare and life science semantic searching platforms, announced today that it is providing its award winning platform, MyDailyApple, to the Nicholas Conor Institute (www.thenicholasconorinstitute.org). MyDailyApple brings together medical news, research, communities, blogs, and stories from all over the web and personalizes all this health information to the healthcare consumer’s needs.
“We are delighted to join Praxeon’s Health Advocacy Platform Initiative (H.A.P.I.) and provide our members with a very powerful tool. By having MyDailyApple on our website and accessible to our members, parents with children afflicted with pediatric cancer can now have the latest healthcare information and scientific developments at their fingertips. Having gone through the trauma of having a child diagnosed with pediatric cancer, I know how much access to the most current information means,” stated Beth Anne Baber, founder and CEO of The Nicholas Conor Institute for Pediatric Cancer Research.
Dr. Dennis Underwood, CEO, CSO and co-founder of Praxeon, said “We are very happy to provide our technology to the Nicholas Conor Institute. Beth Anne has worked tirelessly in creating the Institute and we are happy to have the opportunity to help her in her efforts of educating and bringing together parents, researchers and scientists worldwide in order to share information and find cures for childhood cancer. Our Health Advocacy Platform Initiative was launched in 2007 as a way for us to “give back” to the community. By delivering MyDailyApple to the many members of HAPI, we allow them to have access to the latest information related to their specific ailment through an easy-to-access web-portal contained within their homepage. It will help institute members in finding out more of their specific disease by conducting searches on a breadth of information related to pediatric cancer.”
