Health and Medical News and Resources

General interest items edited by Janice Flahiff


This blog presents a sampling of health and medical news and resources for all. Selected articles and resources will hopefully be of general interest but will also encourage further reading through posted references and other links. Currently I am focusing on public health, basic and applied research and very broadly on disease and healthy lifestyle topics.

Several times a month I will post items on international and global health issues. My Peace Corps Liberia experience (1980-81) has formed me as a global citizen in many ways and has challenged me to think of health and other topics in a more holistic manner.

Do you have an informational question in the health/medical area?
Email me at
I will reply within 48 hours.

This blog is a companion site to my Health and Medical News and Resources Web site with…

My professional work experience and education includes over 15 years experience as a medical librarian and a Master’s in Library Science. In my most recent position I enjoyed contributing to our library’s blog, performing in depth literature searches, and collaborating with faculty, staff, students, and the general public.

While I will never be be able to keep up with the universe of current health/medical news, I subscribe to the following to glean entries for this blog.


  1. Excellent website! So many great resources for health-minded individuals, whether professionally or personally.
