Health and Medical News and Resources

Health and Wellness Information and Tracking Apps

Last month I completed an online medical library class on mobile resources and apps.
The class, Get Mobilized – MLA,  is over. However the content is still online and  free to all.

One week was centered on Mobile Applications and included examples of and links to personal health/wellness apps.

These examples included calorie counters, symptom checkers, and record keepers.

I included these and others in the course at my Web site Health and Medical Resources and News Selected by Janice Flahiff.
Look for them in the Health Apps section.
