London-based Future Science Group announced the launch of Diabetes Management, a new title focused on current therapeutics and patient compliance with respect to diabetes types 1 and 2. Jaakko Tuomilehto, MD, one of four associate editors, said in a statement that despite the several other journals covering diabetes, “it's obvious that there is a place and need for a new one, especially one that deals with the management of diabetes.”

Epocrates, a mobile drug reference provider, added Peter Brandt to its board of directors. Brandt is a former Pfizer exec, serving most recently as president of Pfizer's US pharmaceuticals operations. In his new role, Brandt will help to guide the strategic direction of Epocrates' interactive services.

Quadrant HealthCom promoted Dianne Reynolds to publisher of The Women's Health Alliance, which includes QHC titles OBG Management and The Female Patient. Reynolds succeeds Margo Ullmann as publisher; Ullmann was promoted to group publisher of The Women's Health Alliance. Ullmann and Reynolds will continue to cross-sell between the two Alliance titles to provide a “more efficient and effective sales management team,” according to a statement.
