From the GMR: MedlinePlus - Medical Words Tutorial

Hi all,

If you didn't know already, the Dictionary section of the MedlinePlus has a tutorial titled "Understanding Medical Words" http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/medicalwords.html Now this tutorial talks! There are still a few edits that need to be made to the page but you can get a sneak preview. There are controls on the bottom left of each page to turn sound on or off or adjust the volume.

If you have any questions you can contact Naomi Miller millern@mail.nlm.nih.gov.
