Heart This Resource

It’s that time of year. Roses abound, Cupid’s bow is drawn, and hundreds of pounds of chocolates will be consumed.

But nothing says love more like heart health, am I right?

Thankfully, there is a great resource for all things health related in Gale’s Health and Wellness Resource Center (which we will call HWRC – because who doesn’t love more acronyms?). With information on diseases, drugs, diagnostics, therapies and more, this database is a one-stop-shop for your health-related questions.

Searching for information in the HWRC is straight forward. There is a basic search bar at the top, which can automatically propagate suggested search topics.

There is also an advanced search feature that lets your search get wild! You can search by subject guide, publication, or even use the topic finder to break down different subject areas into further categories. This feature is exceptionally helpful if your knowledge of a specific health topic is limited – offering other search areas you may want to explore.

Furthermore, results include reference materials, academic journals, videos/pictures, audio, and news/magazine articles – with easy to use filters to limit results to relevant information.
