Consumer Health - Accessing Reliable Trusted Sources

About this Web Site

The MCWCHARTS Web site was created to help consumers and patients access reliable health information on the World Wide Web. It was created as part of a grant project called, "Students as Facilitators for Consumer/Patient Access to Quality Internet Health Information." Funding came from Advancing Healthier Wisconsin (AHW).
