Below is a quick compilation of some helpful women's health sites:

  • (American Heart Association)—A site dedicated in large part to consumer education with abstracts on articles appearing in the association's scientific journal (subscribers can access full-text versions).  
  • (American Medical Association)—The Journal of the American Medical Association's Women's Health Information Center includes daily news items and an index of full-text articles from JAMA and the association's specialty journals.
