Community Health Resource Center
Searching the Web for information about a medical condition is convenient -- if you have a computer hooked up to the Internet. But you have to wonder how accurate some of that information is, and where it's coming from. Enter the Platte Valley Medical Center and the Adams County Library, which spent years preparing the fully staffed, regularly updated Community Health Resource Center. Not only can anyone with a library card discover a wealth of objective health and medical information in both English and Spanish, but local physicians can give patients a special "information prescription" that the library staff will fill with the appropriate pamphlet, book, videotape or computer printout.
