Information on Common Illnesses and Diseases

At the SHC, we see over 14,000 visits each year, often addressing a handful of common conditions and diseases.

If you have any questions about common issues from fatigue to rash and bronchitis, but you don’t need to come into the Center, the MedlinePlus website has a wealth of information you can access online.

The site offers extensive information from the National Institutes of Health and the world’s largest medical library, the National Library of Medicine. Patients as well as health professionals use the site, which provides its content in both English and Spanish.

If you’re wondering about a particular condition or disease, feel free to come to the SHC or explore MedlinePlus for more information.
