Finding trustworthy medical information can be a daunting task, but Fort Bend County Libraries has a variety of reliable, authoritative resources for people researching health issues.
Learn more about these free resources when the University Branch Library presents “Library MD: Health Resources @ the Library” on Wednesday, November 28, beginning at 10:30 am, in the Computer Lab of the library, located at 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.
The Adult Services staff will provide an overview of the library’s online databases that provide access to health reference books, health-related articles, and information on medications.
These resources are a great benefit for people researching health issues, but they should not be used as a substitute for professional healthcare advice on personal issues. Always seek the advice of a licensed physician or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions regarding personal medical issues.
The program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required. To register online at the library’s website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), click on “Calendar,” select “University Branch,” and find the program. Participants may also register by calling the library at 281-633-5100, or by visiting the library.
