Objective: This outreach program provides older adults in southwestern Pennsylvania with both health notebooks and online searching workshops in order to maintain and manage their health.

2. Provides older adults with health notebooks to organize personal health information and to manage their medical conditions
3. Increases both medical students' and older adults' abilities to access, search, and evaluate quality consumer health information resources using the National Library of Medicine's online database, MedlinePlus.
4. Empowers older adults to communicate effectively with their health care providers.
