CBS HealthWatch

This new health portal from CBS and Medscape offers a large number of health care resources for consumers. These include general health news, 22 "channels" with features and related resources, and a library containing a medical dictionary, drug directory, a collection of articles on topics A to Z, a guide to self-care and first aid, and related sites. Also at the site, My Health Manager (registration required) is a free service that allows users to create and monitor a personal health profile, access an enhanced library of relevant texts and articles, consult with experts, and correspond with other registered members. Please note that the registration process includes some required questions that users may not wish to answer (such as the name of their health insurance company) and that, upon logging on, the user-selected "health channels" provide targeted advertisements as well as targeted news and articles.
