How can we help you?

A lot of health information is out there but it can be hard to know where to look and what you can trust.

At the PFRC you can meet with a librarian who will help you find the most up-to-date and relaible health information to answer your question. The librarian will do the search with you, guide you to the best resources to meet your specific needs, and print out the information you need to take home.



Here are some examples of the types of questions we can help you with:
My doctor has suggested that I take antidepressant medication but I would like to read more about them before I decide.
• My doctor just ordered blood tests for me and I would like to know more about what I am being tested for.
• A news article I just read in the Gazette mentioned research published in the New England Journal of Medicine. I would like to read the full study. » I have been diagnosed with cancer and would like to know more about treatment options, drug information, chemotherapy, clinical trials etc…
• My father only speaks Greek. Can I have some information about diabetes for him in Greek?
• My son broke his ankle and refuses to take pain medication. What are some alternative ways to manage his pain?
