Digital Health Literacy: How to Find and Understand Health Information on the Internet
There's a lot of health information available online, and it can be difficult to know what's real and important, versus an advertisement to get you to hand over your credit card information. Join Sarah Creech, the Adult Services Librarian at the Belgrade Community Library, for a tour of vetted health resources available online. She'll walk you through some general tips on finding information on the internet (Google is a librarian's friend, too), what sites can be trusted for medical information, and other ways to search for important health information in a safe way.
