Here is a list of the top 10 Twitter feeds for health news that I follow. I really like Men’s Health and  Woman’s Health magazines as a starting point for current trends in fitness and sports medicine. The CDC is a great feed to follow for news about any outbreaks of illness or other health concerns. WebMD and the Mayo Clinic tend to have pretty comprehensive coverage of most medical complaints and illnesses. Greythinking is a great mental health resource and I round out the lists with Daily health tips, a Discovery health feed and a New York Times health tweeter.  Check them out!
