Happy 1st Birthday to My Health Minnesota -> Go Local

http://medlineplus.gov/minnesota

My Health Minnesota -> Go Local (http://medlineplus.gov), a free
database of health services throughout Minnesota, recently celebrated its
first birthday! The project is sponsored by the University of Minnesota
Health Sciences Libraries, the Mayo Clinic Libraries, and the MINITEX
Library and Information Network, in collaboration with the National Library
of Medicine. This project joined others across the country to link the
trusted health information from MedlinePlus (http://medlineplus.gov) with
information about local health services. People can use Go Local to find
hospitals, nursing homes, physicians, support groups, pharmacists,
libraries, rehabilitation programs, and other health services in the Land
of 10,000 Lakes, plus reliable health information about a multitude of
diseases and conditions. My Health Minnesota -> Go Local continues to
grow daily as we add resources throughout the state.

In its first year, My Health Minnesota -> Go Local has been used by
people all over Minnesota, plus across the United States and in other parts
of the world. You’re invited to check out this resource for yourself
(http://medlineplus.gov), and to submit feedback or suggest resources to be
included. The database is searchable by location, diseases/health issues,
and providers/facilities/health services. Give it a try and let us know
what you think!
