January #CarnivalOfHealth Blog Carnival: Hosted by the Healthcare Marketing Network

We have another exciting opportunity for the members of the Healthcare Marketing Network Facebook Group! Just like last month, we are hosting another Blog Carnival: The #CarnivalofHealth


January Topic: Fitness – How to use this topic within your Writing or Blogging Niche

When we hit January, we know that everyone wants to create a #NewYou for the New Year.

Therefore, we wanted to create an opportunity for members to showcase their expertise and experiences by giving the general public information to help them in their journey to get fit and healthy.  Health – related content created by healthcare subject matter experts themselves!  Nurses, Doctors, Social Workers, Pharmacists, Care Managers, Patients and Advocates.
