Welcome to the Consumer Health Guide!

This is a guide for the general public to help you find health information that is reliable and understandable. 

You do not need to be a doctor, nurse, or other health professional to understand these resources.


Before you get started, you may want to look at this tutorial from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) about understanding medical words and communicating with your doctor.
