Hi

I’d appreciate pointers to websites that do a good job of presenting basic
info about a disease and esp. what you can do about it
(prevention/detection).

I’d especially like to see sites that don’t rely so heavily on text to get
across prevention tips, screening tests, symptoms to watch for, for someone
who just found out they’re at risk for a condition. Looking for sites for
regular people (not healthcare professionals).

I’ve checked the archives but don’t find anything good.

I’ve found some nice examples of showing public health statistics, but
nothing very creative in conveying here’s a disease, here’s steps you can
take (without huge reams of text).

Thanks - Kathleen

The Illustrated Family Health Guide from A.D.A.M. may have the type of
thing you're looking for. Although it is a book, they do have a few
examples you can look at online.
