We’re excited to share the news that the American sister site to healthtalk.org, healthexperiencesusa.org, has re-launched with a new design and two new resources or ‘modules’. The Dipex Charity team has been working closely with our colleagues across the pond to give the site a new design and the functionality to expand as the number of modules on their site continues to grow.
The site now includes:
These are the 2nd and 3rd additions to the website and sit alongside ‘Young adults’ experiences of depression’, a resource previously hosted on healthtalk.org and maintained by us.
The website is run by The Health Experiences Research Network (HERN). Launched in 2014, HERN is a partnership between researchers at University of Wisconsin-Madison, Johns Hopkins University, Oregon Health & Science University, Yale University, University of New Mexico, University of Utah-Salt Lake City, and the Veterans Administration.
Like us, HERN are members of DIPEx International (DI). DI is an association of expert researchers and non-profits, from all over the world, conducting qualitative research into people’s personal experiences of health and illness.
HERN approached the Dipex Charity in 2018 to give advice and help them migrate and redesign their website. Our years of experience running healthtalk.org and disseminating qualitative research to the public made us an obvious choice. We advised them on a website platform, design and developed their ideas into a reality.
The Dipex Charity team really enjoyed working on the redesign of the site and liaising with the team in the States across time zones and we are all really pleased with the result. We look forward to the many future projects currently in the pipeline: Breast cancer, Childhood cancer, Adolescent and Young Adult cancer, Gulf War veterans’ health experiences, Gulf War illness, Opioid use disorder, Clinical trial experiences, and Firearm injuries among veterans.
