Some readers may be wondering aloud: "Who is Alice, and why do I want to ask her anything?ï¿½ Well, "Alice" is in fact a team of Columbia University health educators, health care providers, and specialists from health-related organizations worldwide. "Alice" was created in 1993 at Columbia, and is one of the longest-running health question and answer websites. As one might surmise, the site provides intelligent, informed, and lively answers to a number of pressing health issues, such as drug use, body image, and various aspects of emotional health. Visitors can search the archive of answered questions, and also look through topical sections that cover subjects such as alcohol use and relationships. The site also includes a weekly poll and an area where visitors can sign up to receive each week's question (and response) in their email inbox.
