Posted April 29th, 2009 by webadmin

The Canadian Hemochromatosis Society today relaunched its main informational website, at The relaunch coincides with the start of Hemochromatosis Awareness Month, held each May across Canada. “We’re so happy to have the new website launched in time for Awareness Month,” said Bob Rogers, Executive Director of the Society.”Our national outreach over the next month really ramps up, and the website is without question one of our primary communications tools.”

Designed and developed by Vancouver-area web firm iContext Internet, the new look and feel capitalizes on a recent print material rebranding project. “The redesign is the first step in an overall web strategy we developed with the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society,” said Rob Wilson, iContext’s principal. Plans include the development of information videos on YouTube, strengthening the Society’s Facebook presence, and working with the organization to ramp up its use of blogging and RSS.

Hemochromatosis is the most common genetic disorder affecting Canadians. Its complications, caused by iron overload, are crippling and potentially fatal. These complications are easily preventable by early diagnosis and treatment. For more information, visit
