"Health and lifestyle news are priority topics among the growing number of U.S. Hispanics and Latin Americans around the world, and our daily programming will engage them in their language, be culturally relevant, and offer the latest health findings from world-respected sources. We anticipate a strong reception and significant growth with HealthDay Television en Espanol."

"For the past five years the English-language version of HealthDay TV has been syndicated to health portals such as Everyday Health, Medline Plus, Yahoo!, AOL, and U.S News and World Report," added Dan McKillen, CEO of HealthDay.
