Oregon Health Go Local <http://www.medlineplus.gov/oregon> , a free online directory of health services and facilities throughout Oregon is now live! Please consider linking to this resource www.medlineplus.gov/oregon from your library’s resources page. 


Oregon Health Go Local will help you support your patrons and community when health-related questions arise. There are two ways to get to Oregon Health Go Local. First, if you know about the resource you can link directly to it to find health services and facilities in your county. Browse either by location, service or facility type, or by specific health conditions. 


The other way to access this resource is via MedlinePlus <http://www.medlineplus.gov/> . Users viewing any health topic in MedlinePlus will be able to navigate to “Find Health Services for (health topic) in your area.” When a user selects Oregon from this menu, they will be connected with Oregon Health Go Local.


Please view the two short videos linked below for quick examples of how to use Oregon Health Go Local.
