Health Information Sessions
A series of workshops on how to find health information on the Internet is scheduled at a number of library locations through June.
The workshops will provide instruction on how to evaluate the quality and relevance of health information available through the Internet. The sessions will focus on using quality Internet-based health resources reviewed by health care professionals with particular emphasis on resources available through the National Library of Medicine.
Using iPads, participants will navigate through health information on the Internet and learn about apps that provide assistance with answering health questions. Please call to register.
