Consumer Health Resources:

Below are some helpful consumer health resources. The College of DuPage and the C.O.D. Library do not create or control any of the external resources, and they will not be held responsible for misuse of information or any adverse effects of recommendations stated in these resources. Health Information should always be discussed with your health care provider, who can interpret it for you and apply it to your individual case.


The College of Dupage Library's Consumer Health Resource Guide

My "Consumer Health Book Talk" describes the types of health resources available in reference and general collections.
