If you live in Oregon or are a patient at OHSU and...

  • are seeking current information on a health topic of concern to you or your family...
  • want an article to read on an illness or medical treatment written in terms you can understand...


Oregon Health & Science University Health Information by E-Mail service can deliver this information to your home by U.S. mail or e-mail.

We will send you an overview on your topic free of charge. We hope Health Information by Mail or E-Mail will help you take an active part in maintaining your health and well being, and in making decisions with your health care provider. OHSU is an equal opportunity, affirmative action institution. 



The purpose of OHSU's Health Information by Mail services is to provide the Oregon public with access to a wide range of health information. Our aim is to promote individual responsibility for health. We do not provide or offer medical advice. We seek to provide current and authoritative sources of information. However, we do not claim to offer all available references on a topic. Medical information is continually changing and we may not always be able to provide the very latest developments. Materials provided offer the views of individual authors and do not necessarily represent or imply approval or recommendation by OHSU or by your own physician or health care provider.

If you would like to talk to a reference librarian about obtaining information on your health concern, please call 1-503-494-8881.
