Spanish Health Information on the Internet: An Exploratory Study

by White, Mary W.

Abstract (Summary)
Consumers are increasingly turning to the Internet as their source of health information. One segment of this consumer population, the Hispanic community, is one of the fastest growing minority groups in the United States. This paper will give an overview of issues related to consumer health information and the Hispanic population. Using selected Hispanic health topics, the paper will also examine the accessibility of online Spanish health information using basic and advanced search techniques and the extent to which criteria that indicate the quality of the site can easily be found by the searcher.
