Decisions about health, whether they involve treating an illness or evaluating the benefits of a lifestyle change, should be made with the most accurate and up-to-date information available. Today’s healthcare consumers can find advice on healthcare topics in a variety of places, including the Internet, print publications, television programs and advertising promotions. But with so much information out there, it can be difficult to know what to trust.
Northwestern Memorial Hospital offers up-to-date and trusted healthcare information that can help you make the best healthcare decisions. Our Health Learning Centers are state-of-the-art health information libraries that offer resources for patients, their families and members of the community seeking the most reliable answers to healthcare questions. Our resources include books, journals, cookbooks, memoirs, medical references, multimedia options such as medical models of body systems, DVDs and computer programs, Internet information, classes, programs and cancer resources.
