Patient Health Information

As we head into the holiday season, many of us may eat too much food and have health related questions.  The Library wants to help!  When your great aunt has a question about her indigestion, check out our Consumer/Patient Health Guide which highlights resources such as:

  • MedlinePlus for health topics, drug and supplement information, and even tutorials and videos
  • KidsHealth for pediatric information about everything from diseases & conditions to growth and development
  • The Merck Manual for pill identifiers, news, procedures and more

And finally, don’t forget UpToDate! The patient information sections are written at varying levels depending on the audience.
