My Health Minnesota -> Go Local Celebrates Birthday!

My Health Minnesota -> Go Local (http://medlineplus.gov/minnesota), a free database of health services throughout Minnesota, recently celebrated its first birthday! The project is sponsored by the University of Minnesota Health Sciences Libraries, the Mayo Clinic Libraries, and the MINITEX Library Information Network, in collaboration with the National Library of Medicine.

 Minnesota citizens can use Go Local to find more than 5,000 hospitals, nursing homes, physicians, support groups, pharmacists, libraries,

rehabilitation programs, and other health services in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, plus reliable health information about a multitude of diseases and conditions from MedlinePlus (http://medlineplus.gov). The database is searchable by location, diseases/health issues, and providers/facilities/health services. My Health Minnesota -> Go Local continues to grow daily as we add resources throughout the state.

 In its first year, My Health Minnesota -> Go Local has been used by people all over Minnesota, plus across the United States and in other parts of the world.  You’re invited to check out this resource for yourself at: http://medlineplus.gov/minnesota.  Please direct questions and comments or suggest resources to be included by e-mailing golocal@umn.edu
