Health Research: General Health Information

General Health Websites

But Is It True?

Always evaluate the health information you find online. 

According to How to Evaluate Health Information on the Internet, every health-related website should: 

  • State who is responsible for the site and its content
  • Provide staff medical credentials 
  • Explain what the site will and won't do with your personal information (if you are asked for it)
