HealthLine Names BoneSmart.org “Best of the Web”
Earlier this month FARM’s patient outreach website, BoneSmart.org, received yet another bit of recognition – this time from one of the web’s largest medical publishers (HealthLine.com) – which named the site one of the Top 11 Best Total Knee Replacement Blogs. We are grateful for the recognition, and proud to say BoneSmart® has experienced seven straight years of growth. Millions of visitors each year help nurture the web’s most active joint replacement patient forum (with a current archive of more than 300,000 patient “posts”). See the award >
