A New Issue of the UCONN Health Center Library’s consumer health newsletter is available on the website of Healthnet: Connecticut Consumer Health Information Network.

The issue describes websites that help individuals select health insurance plans,  a website that explains the Health Care Reform Act in Spanish, new medical treatment guidelines in consumer friendly language, health information available in Asian languages, and a parents’ guide to educational terms they may in encounter in planning meetings for their child.

The issue also includes reviews of new consumer health books for public libraries.

The newsletter is published especially for public librarians and others interested in consumer health information services. Please pass along this valuable resource.
