Looking for a trusted resource for health related issues?  The Mayo Clinic Health Information web site provides comprehensive information offering insight and advice on topics related to all kinds of health issues. This award winning site is edited by medical clinicians and educators at the clinic who are dedicated to providing clear, accurate and relevant information. This web site is well organized and easy to navigate: type your health issue into the search box in the upper left, or find the condition through the alphabetical listing on the page. The straight-forward and factual approach to symptoms and diagnosis helps a worried parent search for details on how to best handle a child’s illness.

The Mayo Clinic staff realize that parents are interested in partnering with the medical community to ensure the health of their children. Their mission statement clearly states this as a reason for creating and maintaining this site:
