Evaluating Health Information on the Internet
This database, a component of the CDC site, contains some agricultural first aid concerns as well as basic first aid information. There is also a Spanish language section.
The goal of the HealthLink Plus Web site is to facilitate access to consumer health information in an effort to develop and enhance public knowledge of important health and fitness issues. Instead of wading through thousands of health related Internet Web sites, HealthLink Plus users will find reliable, recent, and authoritative information from sites selected by PLCMC’s professional Information Services staff.
The Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County has held a strong reputation in providing and disseminating accurate information since its founding in 1903. The library’s staff of Information Specialists is pleased to continue this legacy of service for you through the HealthLink Plus Web site.
