Health Information Sheets
Sometimes all you need is "just the facts, ma'am."* To help provide increased access to basic health topic information, Alice! has partnered with Columbia Health to provide the information sheets available below. Over time we will continue to add new and updated information sheets to this site. You can also suggest new topics for information sheets using the Comments, Corrections, and Other Feedback form.
The sheets provided here are for information only. Go Ask Alice! provides health information and should not be considered specific medical advice, a diagnosis, treatment, or a second opinion for health conditions. If you have an existing ailment that could be adversely affected by information provided on this site, or if you have an urgent health problem, consult with a health care provider before acting on information contained here. Go Ask Alice! is not an instant reply service and cannot respond directly to individuals.
All information sheets are provided as PDF documents and require Acrobat Reader to view. Please visit the Adobe Reader website to download this free software.
