Wellness Links

This is a very partial listing of health and wellness links on the Internet. It is not intended to be complete but rather send you in some interesting directions concerning issues of health and wellness. A major problem with health information on the Net is determining whether the information is accurate. One thing you might look for is the "HONcode" emblem. "HONcode" sites require that medical and health information be published by qualified professionals, unless otherwise stated. As an Internet consumer of information you must beware and be careful. We pass on these links for information and remind you that we are not responsible for their content.
