Happy Birthday My Health Minnesota

My Health Minnesota -> Go Local at: 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 at: 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!
