NetWellness on "Best" List by Forbes.com

Cincinnati--Estimates place the total number of health Web sites between 20,000 and 30,000. NetWellness was among the 30 "best" consumer health-information Web sites chosen by the online publication Forbes.com.

The Forbes review said the following about NetWellness:
"This is the most reliable type of online resource for consumers: a nonprofit site put together by health care faculty at three Ohio institutions: the University of Cincinnati, Case Western Reserve University and Ohio State University. From the easy-to-use home page you can look up basic information on 75 conditions and diseases and browse recent stories from newspapers and other lay sources. The Library offers an illustrated encyclopedia and access to the Merck manuals. The Clinical Trials section has the most thorough patient-rights information we've seen in one place. Best of all, the Ask an Expert feature lets you e-mail questions. A doctor, nurse or other health pro from one of three sponsoring medical schools will give a detailed and easy-to-understand response within three days. Before submitting the question, you can browse pages of other Question & Answers."

NetWellness has answered more than 17,000 questions since 1995. Find answers to your medical questions online at NetWellness.org.
