e-Resource of the Month: Health & Wellness Resource Center



Because the month of May is marked by several national health-related campaigns, including Allergy/Asthma Awareness Month, National Arthritis Month and Women's Health Week (May 12-18), what better time to promote the library's Health and Wellness Resource Center database?

Gale's Health & Wellness Resource Center can help you find health and wellness information as quickly as a Google search, but with the accuracy of library-quality results.
