CHEC Web Site Launches

FALLS CHURCH, VA – Today Viget Labs launched the new web site for Los Angeles-based non-profit Healthy Child Healthy World, available at www.healthychild.org.

Healthy Child Healthy World was founded as Children's Health Environmental Coalition (CHEC) in 1991 by James and Nancy Chuda after their daughter Colette died from Wilm's tumor -- a rare form of non-hereditary cancer. Their mission was to inform parents about the preventable childhood health and developmental problems caused by exposures to toxic substances and to educate them on risk reduction in their homes, schools, and community.

Today, Healthy Child Healthy World's mission has evolved with the broader goal of protecting the health and well being of children from any harmful environmental exposures. To achieve this mission, they educate parents, support protective policies, and engage communities to make responsible decisions, simple everyday choices, and well-informed lifestyle improvements to create healthy environments where children and families can flourish.

"Today's launch is the culmination of Healthy Child Healthy World's entire rebranding effort and represents a significant step in their growth as an organization," said Viget Labs CEO Brian Williams. "I have been impressed from the start with Healthy Child's vision for leveraging the web as their core communications and outreach platform, and it's been a pleasure to work with their passionate staff on such an important mission. We're excited to measure how effective the solution we've built can be in terms of engaging and inspiring Healthy Child's audience."

"The essence of a web site is to deliver memorable content. We chose Viget Labs because we knew this was their expertise. I am extremely pleased with their outstanding work. It's not easy to organize large amounts of information into logical, clear, and easy-to-use experiences. Viget's team is professional, efficient, creative, and pleasurable," said Healthy Child Healthy World's CEO, Christopher Gavigan.

Viget Labs built healthychild.org using the ExpressionEngine content management system to allow for full-featured content publishing during the redesign and to enable the Healthy Child staff to directly maintain the site content post-launch.
