VANCOUVER, Aug. 21 /CNW/ – HealthPricer, a leader in comparison shopping for consumer healthcare products, today announced that it received the World Wide Web Health Bronze Award. The awards handed out twice annually are organized by the Health Information Resource Center (HIRC), a national clearinghouse for consumer health information programs and materials.

A nation wide panel of US health information and Internet experts judge entries based on content, format, success in reaching the targeted audience and overall quality. This awards program, the most comprehensive of its kind, recognizes the best consumer health information materials and programs from organizations throughout the United States and the awards are considered the “seal of approval” for health information on the web.
