Resources for Health Information

The following sites offer information about health information and resources as a research and informational service. Neither Simmons College nor the College's Counseling Center endorses these organizations, their services or the professionals who may be affiliated with them. You should not consider these organizations as "approved" by Simmons College or the Counseling Center.

Obtaining information about a medical problem on-line is no substitute for seeking one-on-one advice from a health care provider who can assess your health history, your current condition, and your on-going needs.

If you are experiencing a health problem, the Counseling Center strongly urges you to come and talk with a member of our staff or the Health Center staff for confidential advice and assistance.
