Welcome to our Health Resources page. As a reminder, you should never take medical advice online. You can access health information and resources online, but always make sure you speak to your provider about your own treatment or care.
Please consider the following when accessing health information online:
Where is the information coming from? Anyone can buy a website ending in .com and write whatever information they want. If the website ends with .edu, .gov or .org their information is more reliable because it comes from academic institutions (colleges or universities), the government or non-profit groups (respectively).
Who wrote the information? If no one (person or organization) is listed (and you're not on a trusted website), that may be a bad sign. If someone is listed but they aren't a medical professional (like a doctor, nurse, or nutritionist), the information they provide may not be clinically accurate or reliable.
Why was the article/web page created? If there are a lot of ads for medicines or private companies, the page may be selling these products or services which could make them biased.
