For the Public

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 on the web, but check the source of the information. Non-profit organizations with a mission to share information (like 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. For more information on evaluating websites, see the MedlinePlus Guide to Healthy Web Surfing.
