MEDLINEplus is a free database developed by the National Library of Medicine to provide reliable information to the public on various diseases and health conditions. The successful collaborative pilot project is an integral part of the Health Science Center’s outreach project, which seeks to understand the health information needs of the area’s Hispanic population.
