Blogger’s community on Health & Wellbeing
Healthivate is a community for people who write about health in their blogs. We brainstorm, support, build friendships, educate, encourage, empower, create and share ideas, engage online and make connections with one another. We all come together with one major focus: HEALTH.
Mission: Healthivate Media Company aims to harness the power of social media to improve, educate and facilitate positive changes in peoples’ behaviors, thoughts and feeling about health and related issues.

Participatory Medicine Movement
Inspired by the growing participatory medicine movement, Healthivate seeks to provide blogger’s, as powerful influencers of their communities, with access to leading thought leaders as we discuss the individuals role in their own health and well-being in a completely different way. At some stage in our lives we are all patients and managing our journey through health – wellness or illness must be a priority in our lives and that of our families. It is about empowerment.
Healthivate gives blogger’s the opportunity to explore these issues by sharing stories, resources and experiencing the latest tools in the realms of fitness, nutrition, beauty, sex, relationships, disease management, and health optimization, all under one roof.
Adopting a holistic approach to health, we also feature a number of social entrepreneurs who work to improve the health of others and to challenge you as blogger’s to take that story to a bigger stage and to join the movement. YOU can make a difference.
The Patient Activist
This societal shift from a paternalistic approach to medicine to a patient-centered one, with greater participation by patients in their care decisions, has exploded globally thanks to greater openness and access provided because of the Internet and online patient communities. Couple this with the rapid convergence of medical discovery, technology including big data, patient movement building and we are witnessing the birth of a new consumer movement at large – the patient activist.
Known as the rise of the e-patient, online advocates help others to join participatory medicine. e-patients are empowered, equipped and engaged.
