We are aware that students are eager to play an active role in their health care and that the Internet is often a place that students turn to gain valuable advice or information. Since there is no regulatory agency that reviews the validity or accuracy of the claims on the Internet, we at the Student Health Center are concerned that you as the patient obtain information from reliable sources when “surfing the web.” Our physicians and nurse practitioners can provide you directly with any advice or educational materials you need to manage your health, but in the event that you use the Internet to augment our resources, we recommend the following as reliable sources for health or nutrition information.
