Health and Wellness Resources

Finding health information online can be really difficult.  How do you know what sites to trust?  Is the information up to date?  Is it Canadian or American?  The good news is that you don't need to filter through all of those results.  Instead you can use one of the Health and Wellness databases that you have FREE access to with your library card. 

My favourite database for getting information to get basic information in an understandable format is the Gale Health and Wellness Resource Centre.  It provides basic information including: definition, description, causes and symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, alternative treatment and more! You can search using the search box or browse topics by clicking on the green tab "Diseases and Conditions" and an alphabetical list will appear. 

If you are looking for specific health information and need a hand with finding great articles, or get in touch with us online.
