MedLine Plus

Now more than ever, access to factual and reliable health information is critical for Americans. For that reason, we are so happy to have MedLine Plus at our disposal. From the U.S. National Library of Medicine, MedLine Plus is a free resource for anyone—no logins or subscription fees required. And best of all, information on MedLine Plus is meant for the general public and therefore easy for us non-healthcare professionals to understand.

Those seeking information on COVID-19 are directed to https://www.coronavirus.gov/ (from the CDC) and https://www.nih.gov/coronavirus (from the NIH).

MedLine Plus breaks down information by health topic, drugs & supplements, and videos & tools. There is also a database of medical tests to help people understand what the test does and why their doctor ordered it for them, as well as a encyclopedia to help people understand medical terms and conditions.

MedLine Plus also releases a quarterly magazine, and you can read the current issue and past issues on their website. You also have the option to download the magazine as a PDF—perfect for those using an eReader!

    has been conducting a little homework on this.

    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this matter
    here on your web site.

  3. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for
    my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?

  5. We absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s to be just what I’m looking
    for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write regarding here.

    Again, awesome site!
