Partners HealthCare and WHDH-TV Channel 7 have launched an interactive "Ask the Doctor" web series with experts in the areas of obstetrics, pediatrics and emergency and primary care medicine. The team of experienced physicians comprises Laura Riley, MD, of the MGH Vincent Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology; Victoria McEvoy, MD, of MassGeneral Hospital for Children; Jeff Collins, MD, of MGH Primary Care; Lisa Owens, MD, of BWH Primary Care; and Christian Arbelaez, MD, MPH, of BWH Emergency Medicine. During live web chats at www.whdh.com/askthedoctor each Wednesday from 12:45 to 1:45 pm, the general public has the opportunity to ask the featured physician a question. The March 9 live chat with Riley drew 200 participants.

"This is a great way for folks to log on to their computers and learn about ways to keep themselves and their families healthy and fit," says McEvoy. "The team of Partners physicians are excited to offer their knowledge and services through these web chats."
