As we age, we are at greater risk for chronic disease. To manage our health, it is helpful to learn as much as we can about our disease. The internet is loaded with information about all the different diseases and potential treatments. The challenge is figuring out which of those sources is reliable. To help you out, SDSU Extension has compiled a list of websites to help you learn more.
- National Institute of Health: Health Information
- National Institute on Aging: Health Information
- Evaluating Health Information
- Finding Reliable Health Information Online
Perhaps the most important thing to know is that being diagnosed with a disease it not hopeless. With practice and support, we can manage our disease and enjoy a high quality of life. SDSU Extension has a program to help you learn those skills called, Better Choices. Better Health. Please consider signing up for a workshop near you.
