Patients & Families

Lake Health Resource Center/Library

Get answers to your health questions! We want you to be an informed partner in your own care. Accurate, reliable information is vital for making good health care decisions.

Finding Credible Information Online

While there is a wealth of health-related information available online, not all material is credible or up-to-date. If you would like to research health topics on your own, start with these trusted health information websites. We invite you to explore Dictionaries and Encyclopedias, Drugs and Supplements information and Interactive Health Tools

Lake Health's blog also offers great information for local experts.
