Fruit Street Health to Feature Harvard Health Publishing Content on its Diabetes Prevention & COVID-19 Portals

NEW YORK, June 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fruit Street Health, a leading telehealth company funded and guided by physicians, is pleased to announce that its newly created education portal, CovidMD(TM) will feature articles, Q&As, and video content from Harvard Health Publishing (HHP), the consumer-health publishing division of Harvard Medical School. HHP develops evidence-based and accessible health information for lay audiences.

Fruit Street Health offers two telemedicine services to patients - a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program and CovidMD, a comprehensive risk assessment, triage, and telemedicine platform built to assist the healthcare system as they navigate the nuances of the COVID-19 pandemic. Both telemedicine products are utilized by self-insured employers and health plans that want to reduce their healthcare costs through telemedicine.

Harvard Health Publishing will provide educational articles, Q&As, podcasts, and video content related to COVID-19, in addition to providing content serving Fruit Street Health's diabetes prevention program. It will be available to members on the Fruit Street Health and CovidMD mobile applications and websites.

"We are dedicated to providing people with high-caliber educational tools to adopt and sustain healthy lives," said Laurence Girard, CEO and Founder of Fruit Street Health. "Our mission aligns with that of Harvard Health Publishing, making the relationship an obvious fit. This new content will be a great complement to our telemedicine services."

Harvard Health Publishing's health experts and experienced writers work closely with faculty at Harvard Medical School faculty and the Harvard-affiliated hospitals to develop timely, accessible, and evidence-based content on the health and wellness issues that matter most.
