Evaluating Health Information

Primary NN/LM MAR Contact: Lydia N. Collins / Consumer Health Coordinator / lydia@pitt.edu

Your health care provider is your best source of information about your personal health. The consumer who wants to find further health information has many options, but check the source of the information.

  • Non-profit organizations with a mission to share information (such as the American Cancer Society) usually have good quality websites
  • Universities often have excellent websites
  • Be aware that websites which advertise products should be read with great care
