Curt's Favorite Disease Web Sites

 NAME OF WEBSITE
 DESCRIPTION OF WEBSITE
 MedlinePlus

Fantastic site! Once in a while our government does something right. This website is a service of the U. S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. There are thousands of Adam images (I think they are the best!) in the Medical Encyclopedia section that you can use to illustrate your PowerPoints and reports. Best of all, the images already belong to all of us (supported by our tax dollars), so use them! Once on this website, go to the Health Topics link and just dig in.

 Yahoo

Great page for lists of diseases and related links.  From Yahoo!  You can't give this list of sites a high enough number rating.

 Medem.com

This page on Medem.com will provide an enormous research opportunity for students looking for medical information. Check it out!
