Better Medicine Using the Internet - All of Us

Nahant, Massachusetts is a small, coastal community with an aging population. One or more chronic conditions are typical to this age group. Nahant Public Library would like to update its aging computers, laptops and e-readers and enhance them with shortcut links to trusted health information portals such as the National Library of Medicine's MedlinePlus and the National Institutes of Health's All of Us Research Program. Combined with public and personal presentations on finding trusted health information, we hope to raise public awareness of good online resources and of the library as a means to access them.
