What is "consumer health information"?  Consumer health information is any information you need to make informed decisions about your health or your family's health.
It can be found in print or eBooks, websites, brochures, online videos and other information sources.

Reliable consumer health information can help you work with your health care professionals to make choices that are right for you.
