“NMJ is a highly reputable journal and website that is a valuable addition to our existing integrative healthcare portfolio,” explains Liz Plizga, Diversified Communications’ Group Vice President. “We are very excited to work together to expand NMJ’s business model while seeking opportunities to share content – increasing the value for all our customers, and to cross promote – expanding the audience for all products.”
