Georgia Health – Go Local

Georgia Health Go Local, is a new website designed to help Georgians find local health information and resources in their area.

Georgia Health – Go Local provides information and links to hospitals, doctors, clinics, support groups, immunization programs, home health care, and other programs and services people can use to find help for themselves and their loved ones.

Some of the topics include:
Where can I find a weight loss program?
Is there an adult daycare center in my area?
Are there support groups for parents of children with disabilities?
Where can I take a first aid course?

Search for resources by county or zip code, type of service or topic. Georgia Health – Go Local offers additional information and convenience because it is connected to MedlinePlus.gov, the health Web site of the world’s largest medical library, the National Library of Medicine.

Georgia Health – Go Local is produced by the libraries of Mercer University School of Medicine, Georgia State University, Emory University, the Medical College of Georgia, and Morehouse School of Medicine, in partnership with the Georgia Public Library Service, GALILEO, HODAC, Inc., GRID (Georgia Rural Health Interactive Directory) and many other organizations around the state.

Georgia Health – Go Local is supported by The National Library of Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health. For more information see the full press release available at http://gain.mercer.edu/golocal.
