ARHealthLINK - Arkansas Go Local is a directory of health services in Arkansas. The site can be searched by zip code, county, facility or type of service, and disease or health issue. ARHealthLINK - Arkansas Go Local works in tandem with MedlinePlus: users of the ARHealthLINK – Arkansas Go Local site are linked to MedlinePlus health topics, and MedlinePlus users are directed to health services in Arkansas. Visit the site at http://www.arhealthlink.org
Tox Town is now available in both English, http://toxtown.nlm.nih.gov and en español, http://toxtown.nlm.nih.gov/espanol. Visitors can learn in English or in Spanish about environmental health concerns and over 30 toxic chemicals in these imaginary neighborhoods: a City, Farm, Town, US-Mexico Border, and Port.
In either language, Tox Town uses neighborhood scenes along with color, graphics, sounds, and animation to add interest to learning about connections between chemicals, the environment, and the public’s health. Tox Town’s target audience is high school, college and graduate students, educators, and the interested public.
Tox Town en español identifies Spanish-language information in a subject area – environmental health and toxicology – that currently has few Web resources. To supplement the limited Web resources in Spanish, nearly 100 pages of background information describing environmental health concerns were translated and reviewed by a team of bilingual health information specialists.
Tox Town® is a project of the Specialized Information Services Division of the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
