About Go Local

The Go Local links on MedlinePlus health topic pages take you to information about health services in local geographic areas, including hospitals, physicians, nursing homes, support groups, health screening providers and many others. You can link directly from each MedlinePlus health topic to services related to that particular topic. For example, if you choose Go Local from the MedlinePlus Breast Cancer page, you will find links to local services such as Cancer Clinics, Oncologists, Support Groups in the area you select.

Currently there are twenty-seven Go Local participants with many more to be released in the future. Here is a list of current Go Local participants.

The National Library of Medicine is partnering with libraries and library consortia to provide national coverage of health services. You can help by sending comments or suggestions to an individual Go Local site or to MedlinePlus.
