WebMD:

Web site that provides information on diseases, illnesses, treatments, medications, wellness, and more. This web site is much more interactive and busy than Medline Plus and healthfinder.gov in that it contains a variety of health quizzes, message boards, health blogs, and video clips. The daily features, quizzes, and topic highlights give this web site the feel of a health magazine that has been put on the Internet.

Of particular interest:

  • Symptom Checker - Click on the area of the body where you are experiencing symptoms and the web site will provide explanations of what might be wrong.
  • You can separate health issues and advice, to some extent, by gender and age. At the top of the page there is a place for Men's health, Women's health, and Children's Health.
