With over 1 million health-related Web sites, it is very difficult to know if the information you find is accurate. I have reviewed these Web sites and found them to be excellent sources for credible and useful medical information. Of course, everybody is different, and no Web site will be able to address your particular health condition exactly, so don't hesitate to contact the Student Health Service to arrange to see one of our health professionals. --Robert J.
