Google health exec leaves

Noted programmer Adam Bosworth leaving Google where he had been in charge of health initiatives.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Adam Bosworth, who headed up Google's health-related projects, is leaving the company. The news was first reported on Search Engine Land.

A Google spokesman said Bosworth was on vacation and had "decided to pursue other opportunities after that." He joined Google in 2004 after leaving BEA Systems.

Google and its main rivals have been preparing to expand their health and medical information-related services as more and more people seek out such information online.
