Final Exam: Wellness Is a School Open to All

Lifelong learning is the goal of education. With all the health information on the internet, how do you sort the good from the bad? How do you know you’re reading accurate, research-based information, as opposed to “urban legends”? (Note: see Wellness Librarian’s recent posts on health hoaxes on the internet.)

“I Saw It on the Internet,” a page at http://www.center4research.org/internet.html is sponsored by the National Research Center for Women & Families, a nonprofit, nonpartisan outfit dedicated to providing health and medical facts. This would be a good place to start if you want to cull through health information and don’t have a lot of time to translate medical jargon or waste time with fake “cures.”
