The US Department of Health and Human Services provides the online service MedlinePlus. This tool presents interactive health tutorials allowing users to learn about the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment for a variety of diseases and conditions. Viewers can also learn about surgeries, prevention and wellness. Each tutorial includes animated graphics, audio and easy-to-read language.
While these step by step tutorials are no replacement for personalized healthcare, they can fill in some gaps for individuals seeking detailed, yet easily understandable, healthcare knowledge.
