'Spring Into Health' website uses survey questions to personalize medical information

Posted 02/18/02

Spring Into Health focuses on the power of the Internet to improve health and medical care. Unlike other health websites, that are often just informational and difficult to navigate, www.howsyourhealth.com customizes information for users who are really healthy or really sick, very old or very young. Persons who are very young or sick benefit from the assistance of family or friends when using the website.

National and local sponsors hope that community members, aged 2-99, will use www.howsyourhealth.com. This website, was developed at Dartmouth and has been tested across the country and in several languages. It is effective, free, easy-to-use, absolutely private, and contains no advertising. The Spring Into Health Upper Valley Program, sponsored by the Hanover and Lebanon Chambers of Commerce and the Center for the Aging at Dartmouth Medical School, is part of a nationwide approach sponsored by the National Library of Medicine.

For additional information, flyers, or printed copies of web-based output from www.howsyourhealth.com, contact:

As members of the Upper Valley use the website, information about health needs and health care will be made public and used to better design future community programs and services.

Just click on www.howsyourhealth.com and choose NH/VT.

Dartmouth has television (satellite uplink) and radio (ISDN) studios available for domestic and international live and taped interviews. For more information, call 603-646-3661 or see our Radio, Television capability webpage.
