Who are we?
Osborne Designs was created as a result of our extensive work on the web running health communities. Our flag ship, the Interstitial Cystitis Network, was established in 1994 and remains one of the largest, most active and recognized medical communities on the web today. The recipient of numerous awards, the ICN has been honored by the Sunnybrook and Womens Health College (Canada), is a four star MentalHealthNet web site and received the highest rating possible from the Medical Resource Reviews Database.
The web site features a variety of interactive programs and special events, including: live guest lectures, weekly web based patient meetings, 24 hour patient support for more than 10,000 patients in a VBulletin Forum system, CME opportunities, clinical trial referrals, web based surveys and an extensive e-commerce mail order system.
The IC Network also publishes a number of newsletters and reports that are distributed, economically, via the web. The IC Optimist is our basic patient education newsletter, a full color quarterly publication. (Copies are available upon request.)
The ICN bridges the gap between the patient and provider by creating rich, timely educational and support opportunities. We're very proud of the fact that the ICN gathers essential data for a number of research teams and/or universities around the world. We are conducting concurrent studies on treatments, the impact of IC on quality of life, sexuality studies and more!
Our second niche is the arts & craft community. The Ren Brown Collection is the largest Japanese Art Gallery on the West Coast. The Unique Spool and Eastwind Art are small, boutique companies with a strong web presence. If you're a home winemaker, check out Tzabaco Rancho Vineyards, which provides award winning cabernet, merlot and zinfandel grapes to vintners around the country. As you can tell, our emphasis is on clean, elegant designs.
