Easy Read: Health and Medical Websites

At last: a medical site that speaks layman’s English (or Spanish), with links to information on common illnesses and conditions. The information, which includes some interactive tutorials, is in formats that are easy to reproduce. This is an excellent source of materials for people with limited reading skills. The sites were chosen by health professionals from the staff at the National Library of Medicine. Go to http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/all_easytoread.html.

Bonus: The site also shows how to write Easy-to-Read health materials yourself!
