Websites for health information

You can’t believe everything you see on the Internet and this is especially true when it comes to health information. However, not all health information on the Internet is bad. You just have to follow a couple few simple rules to ensure you are getting accurate information.

Rule #1: Don’t “Google” or “Wikipedia” your symptoms and read every result. Some of the information may not come from medical professionals or be reliable.

Rule #2: When looking for medical information online, use websites sponsored by the government, medical schools, major research centers and national organizations.

Here is a list of websites that would be good sources for health information:

Plan B available now

Student Health Services now offers Plan B Emergency Contraceptive. No appointment is necessary. Please call 316-978-3620 for more information.
