Mannatech, Incorporated, a global pioneer in the development of high-quality health, weight and fitness, and skin care solutions based on nutritional science, announced today its educational Web site, MannatechScience.org, has received a merit Web Health Award.
The Web Health Awards program recognizes the best Web-based health-related content for consumers and professionals. The program, held twice a year, reviews Web sites and bestows a seal of quality for those that provide reliable health information. This seal of quality should remind consumers that a panel of international health information and Internet experts have reviewed the site and approved it for accuracy, success in reaching its targeted audience and overall quality.

This Web-based health awards program is an extension of the HIRC's 16-year old National Health Information Awards, the largest program of its kind in the United States. There were nearly 1,000 entries in last year's National Health Information Awards from hundreds of organizations.
