Trust it or Trash it

Trust or Trash is a tool to help you think critically about the quality of health information. The tool teaches three simple questions to ask yourself:

  • Who said it?
  • When did they say it?
  • How did they know?

The Trust It or Trash It site is also in Spanish. This site is developed by the Genetic Alliance in collaboration with several partners including the CDC and the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities. This site is a great too to teach students how to evaluate health information online and in print. Trust it or Trash it also includes a content, quality and usability scale to help you assess:

  • Is the information complete?
  • Is the information right?
  • Is the information presented in a way that is understandable and accessible?

    A PDF version is available.
