Consumer Health Resources

These are the top medical health information websites geared for the layperson. The Consumer and Patient Health Information Section (CAPHIS) of MLA evaluates websites based on the following criteria: credibility, sponsorship/authorship, content, audience, currency, disclosure, purpose, links, design, interactivity, and disclaimers. The following websites have been deemed particularly useful (in each area, sites are listed in alphabetical, NOT ranked, order).

No direct recommendation or sponsorship by Holy Name Medical Center or CAPHIS or MLA of these listed web resources is implied. The resources referenced here are intended to provide general information for you. Some resources will contain information that is the opinion of the author and not necessarily that of your physician. Please consult your healthcare provider for individual information on your specific condition.
