This is a resource for trainers - an Internet training program to help older adults find answers to their health questions. It's a free, downloadable Toolkit for Trainers that lets you accomplish two valuable goals -- introduce older adults to high-quality online health information (eg Health topics, drugs and supplements, the medical encyclopedia) and help them build Internet skills at the same time. The toolkit comes with a set of teaching materials that will work with beginning and intermediate students of the web, including easy-to-use lesson plans, student handouts, web searching exercises, illustrated glossaries and screen shots of web pages visited in class.
