YourHealthSecurity.org helped push major health care reform in 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

People may share their stories on the website or read hundreds of stories from around the county. The site was built as a team effort. I handled all the graphics and design, building a customized WordPress theme. The homepage features a SlideDeck slideshow on the homepage, and allows users to navigate content either by state or topic according to their interest. The site incorporates Convio-powered components such as Take Action forms and petitions and Share Your Story surveys. Stories are collected with a customized database that was built by another member of our team.
