Men's Health Delivered
Overwhelming medical terms can make some health sites hard to handle, so university health professionals are working together to provide men with their own online "health center."

Somewhere within that World Wide Web on our Internet sits a Web site solely dedicated to Ohioans' health.


Net Wellness: Consumer Health Information provides health information and education to people searching for answers to health problems or general health information. Faculty of the University of Cincinnati, The Ohio State University and Case Western Reserve University solely create the site information.


This year, in honor of Father's Day, Cincy Chic explores the Men's Health Center section on the Net Wellness site and focuses on some of its features.


The men's center site is divided into pages ranging from simple health topics and health centers to a reference library and a really interesting aspect, the "ask an expert" section on the site, which involves a question-and-answer format to the health professionals, which range from physicians and nurses to psychologists and social workers. They all volunteer their time to answer the questions as a service to the community, and they cover a wide range of specialties.


On the site, The Ohio State University Medical Center's "Healthcare Guidelines for Men" give daily, monthly, yearly and every "x" amount of years guidelines on what men should do in order to guarantee that they stay in good health.


Along with having articles and links to university created materials, the site also connects to other resources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) information. In their "Tips For a Safe and Healthy Life", the CDC site (linked on the Net Wellness Web site) offers five specific health tips. These five tips include eating healthy, staying active, protecting yourself, managing stress and getting check-ups.


More specific articles, like "'Tis the Season for Grilling", offer everyday activity tips toward good health. From marinating to preventing flare-ups, this particular article discusses preventative measures to take to make your delicious grilled foods just as great for your body as they are for your taste buds.
