October is medical literacy month! The library cares about all kinds of literacy, and health literacy is one of the most important. Merck Manuals are here to help! Want to know what all of the side effects of a prescription are? Merck has all of the frequently asked questions about a wide variety of drugs. Want to know how to put what you’re feeling into words? Merck has a dictionary of common symptoms, and suggests things to discuss with your doctor. Unsure about medical advice from friends or social media? Merck has expert facts and opinions on current medical topics.
Danville Public Library staff are not doctors and are unable to offer medical advice. We provide information from medical experts, but if you have concerns about your specific health needs only your doctor can diagnose and treat.
