Consumer Health Resources After Sandy

Disaster-related health topics in MedlinePlus and other NLM resources. Please share these resources with your agencies and colleagues.

A reminder that the National Library of Medicine has materials on many disaster-related health topics in MedlinePlus. These may be useful for health messaging to the public and to disaster responders and volunteers. These are the topics most likely to be of use during short and long-term recovery and clean-up. Each topic page is in English and Spanish and the English-language pages also point to materials in other languages. All the MedlinePlus topics below (except Hypothermia and Molds) have some materials in multiple languages.


Information for the general public on over 700 health topics including several on emergencies and disasters. All MedlinePlus resources are also available en español (see below).
