The Breast Cancer Lighthouse web site is designed for women who have been newly diagnosed with breast cancer. This calming, feminine interface contains personal stories of 14 survivors of breast cancer as well as medical facts from health care professionals about diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
- Given the "Medinex Seal of Approval" from Medinex.com, the fastest-growing online health community on the Internet. December 1999.
- Revision funded internally by the Communication Technology Lab.
The original Breast Cancer Lighthouse web site was the first commercial web site that the Communication Technology Lab created back in 1995. While still accumulating lots of traffic, its design and multimedia content had grown out-of-date. During the Summer and Fall of 1999, the Communication Technology Lab upgraded the web site to modern web site standards (at the time), including improved navigation, graphic design, and adding dynamic media elements, including digital audio and video. The upgrade also included minor content revisions. I collaborated with Darcy Greene on the look-and-feel of the revised site and then managed three student interns on the revision of the site. During the revision, I created a program that auto generate the complete site given the database of content and the site design template.
