This isn't a Rad Ref event, but medical librarian Arpita Bose (with an assist from me) will soon be conducting a free Internet research workshop at the Park Slope Food Coop:
Beyond an Apple a Day: Finding Health Information Online
Looking for health information? If you, a friend, or a family member has been diagnosed with an illness, medical terminology can be confusing or scary. Or maybe you want preventive health information to stay fit and well. Or you might want to learn more about physical and mental health during the stages of human development. Where can you find the answers to your health questions?
Come to this workshop to learn about the best online resources for medical conditions, medications, complementary therapies, and wellness. We will help you find accurate, timely information and avoid the bad apples in the bunch.
Links to some of the sites we'll be looking at are at tinyurl.com/pscoophealthinfo.
