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 Sienna Branch Library presents “Health Resources @ the Library” on Thursday, August 29, beginning at 10:00 am, in the Computer Lab of the library, located at 8411 Sienna Springs Blvd in Missouri City.
The Adult Services staff will provide an overview of the library’s online databases that provide information on health-related issues. Learn how to research topics such as general health, evidence-based health data, medications and supplements, and alternative medicine, by using the library’s resources and medical journals.
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 “Sienna Branch,” and find the program. Participants may also register by calling the library at 281-238-2952, or by visiting the library.
