Press Release for January 18, 2013 - Download

Temecula, CA - IG Living! the only magazine dedicated to patients who use immune globulin (IG) products and to their care providers, has announced the debut of its newest web page, IGL Teen. IGL Teen features helpful links, tools and tips, inspiring videos, blogs, book reviews, playlists, plus a host of teen-targeted resources that connect visitors with articles, advice and information specifically geared toward a younger audience.

The site is filled with inspiration, motivation and opportunities for readers to connect with other teens in the IG community. “Being a young adult is tough enough; having a chronic illness doesn’t make it any easier,” says IG Living reader Callie Hines, 17. “The resources on this website are really helpful and can be used in our everyday lives. I’m super excited!”

“Even healthy, well-adjusted kids struggle with the emotional hurdles of adolescence, but for a teen living with chronic illness, these issues are compounded,” says Ronale Tucker-Rhodes, editor-in-chief, IG Living magazine. “Our mission is to support our audience through education, communication and advocacy, and one of the ways we’ve been able to do this is through our online presence. Our resources are designed to help patients navigate the challenges of living with chronic disease – whether they are 15 or over 50.”

The website launch will be celebrated with a week-long promotion that includes contests, quizzes and daily prizes on the IG Living Facebook and Teen Group pages. IG Living reaches 30,000 readers with each issue, including more than 19,000 physicians, nurses, case managers and other healthcare professionals involved in treating patients with IG products.
