72 percent of Internet users say that they’ve looked online for health information within the last year. We understand that doing research on symptoms, prevention, treatment options, and overall wellness is important, but many people don’t realize that much of the health information found online is not reliable. Some websites don’t keep the information updated, while others simply don’t provide the facts. That’s why we’ve partnered with UpToDate to give you the accurate health information you’re looking for.
