Medpedia Project aims to create an online encyclopedia of health information

Los Angeles Times, July 23, 2008
Internet entrepreneurs are teaming with doctors, researchers, and other medical professionals to create the Web's largest body of health information. Modeled on the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, but written and edited only by trained professionals, the Medpedia Project will gather knowledge usually confined to academic circles but make it understandable and available to consumers. The website will be officially launched at year's end.
