General Health Information

For sites of special interest to physical therapy assistants, mouseover the tab for Finding Web Sites above.

Finding information about health topics like cancer, obesity, diabetes, nutrition, etc. is easy. Finding reliable information, however, is more difficult. You can avoid a lot of the garbage that's out there by using this Google custom search engine, which only searches reputable sites like the National Library of Medicine.

It's easy. Just type your search terms in and click the Search button.

You can also explore each site yourself by clicking on one of the links below:

Centers for Disease Control National Institutes of Health
HealthFinder National Library of Medicine
Mayo Clinic PDRhealth
MedlinePlus Women's Health.Gov
