Health Information Social Net DailyStrength Closes First Round Financing

There seems to be a lot of health-related website news lately. This morning, for example, we reported that Meredith Corp (NYSE: MDP). had purchased health-information search engine Healia. And last week, we reported on a $2 million angel funding for wellness site PeerWisdom (which Seattle PI noted has just changed its name to Trusera). Now, as Venturebeat reports on a first round funding from social net that connects people based health problems called DailyStrength. The funding is estimated between $5- and $7 million. Redpoint Ventures participated in the round. The Santa Cruz-based company, which also raised an undisclosed amount of seed funding from Redpoint last November, plans to use the funds for new hires, find partners and develop features like personalized news functionality and widgets.
