GE Healthcare has launched a global competition on multiple social media platforms to raise public awareness about cancer prevention. Over the next few weeks, GE Healthcare’s “#GetFit” campaign will encourage people to share their own stories and information through  Twitter, Facebook, and Sina Weibo.

S&P Dow Jones Indices has added health insurer United Healthcare to the Dow Jones industrial average, replacing Kraft Foods. The change is a sign of the growing importance of healthcare to the economy. The U.S. spent 17.9 percent of its gross domestic product on healthcare in 2010, more than double what other wealthy nations spend on a per-person basis.

Aegerion Pharmaceuticals joined in support of the first National Familial Hypercholesterolemia Awareness Day, held last week. The National FH Day was sponsored by the FH Foundation to raise awareness of FH through education, advocacy, and research. Aegerion is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing drugs to treat debilitating, often fatal diseases.
