MedlinePlus Spanish-Language Facebook account celebrates 10k followers!

Bixal is excited to announce that MedlinePlus en español recently reached 10,000 followers on its Facebook page and we designed this image to help them celebrate!

The National Library of Medicine’s MedlinePlus en español provides consumer-oriented health information for Spanish-speakers in the United States. As part of a larger initiative with the National Library of Medicine, Bixal provides Spanish-language content creation, editorial services and social media strategy and implementation support.

The Spanish-language Facebook page was launched in January 2016 and has allowed NLM to quickly expand and engage its social media followers and promote the sharing or easy-to-read, science-based health information among Spanish-speakers nationwide.

We believe that this is further evidence that Latinos are extremely inclined to engage online and are thirsty for high-quality information on health and other important issues.

We are grateful for this milestone and hope for many more “Me Gusta” to come!
