Web Resources

Google Search Tip

The open web (the web that is searchable using Google) is an excellent resource for health data. Limiting to .gov sites using the "site:" operator can be particularly helpful. For example,  the following Google search heart disease epidemiology site:gov will bring back results about the epidemiology of heart disease from the CDC; the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; MedlinePlus; as well as state and local public health departments.
