Online Content
 "We know that up to 97% of Spanish-dominant Hispanics say they worry about their overall health but there have been obstacles – including language, education, misinformation and distrust -- to receiving quality health care for years," commented Alberto Oliva, editor of Ser Padres. "Growing our relationship with Dr. Lifshitz on the web will help Hispanic patients, because it combines two names that have been trusted and tested sources for health information in an easily-accessible way."
Ser Padres publisher Enedina Vega said: "Now, Hispanic parents can find
us in print and online -- in partnership with one of the most influential
and recognized doctors in our market. This is an example of true brand
synergies for the greater consumer good."
