New health database is free to all Minnesotans
My Health Minnesota → Go Local, a new, free, web-based resource, makes it possible for every Minnesotan to connect with health services—hospitals, care providers, nursing homes, support groups, and more—within their local communities.
There's a lot of health information on the internet, but not all of it's good. For years, consumers have been able to access trustworthy information about health conditions through websites like the MedlinePlus consumer website of the National Library of Medicine. But access to local health resources and treatment options has been hard to find online. My Health Minnesota → Go Local builds on the MedlinePlus site by providing information on health services in consumers' local communities.

My Health Minnesota → Go Local is a joint project of the University of Minnesota Health Sciences Libraries, the Mayo Clinic Libraries, the MINITEX Library Information Network, the Minnesota Department of Health, and United Way 2-1-1. It is made possible with funding from the Minnesota Department of Education; State Library Services, through a Library Services and Technology Act grant and with the support of Health Science Libraries of Minnesota.
The launch event is cosponsored by the Friends of the University of Minnesota Libraries.
