Iraqi Health Outreach Project: Evaluating Web-based Health Information

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This six-panel brochure in English and Arabic educates Iraqi Americans about how to find accurate and valuable health information on the Internet, and avoid bad information. It discusses ways to evaluate websites, and explains how websites published by the U.S. government (.gov), nonprofit organizations (.org), or a college or university (.edu) may be more reliable sources of health information, and suggests that people also look to how current the health information is. The document clarifies that the best resource for answers to questions about a person's health is with their doctor. Links for more information are provided.
