Consumer Health RESOURCE Centre

Welcome to the Consumer Health Resource Centre.

Consumer health information is any information that you need to make informed decisions about your own or your family’s health. Access to this information helps you to work with health-care professionals to make choices that are right for you. 

For your health information needs, the University of Manitoba Health Sciences Libraries and the Winnipeg Public Library offer services for anyone seeking information on health and wellness issues.

If you are looking for health services in your area, the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority maintains a searchable listing of health services, programs and organizations in Manitoba, search the Health Services Directory.
