Some material found in the Center may contain information that is the opinion of the author. Only a health professional (physician, nurse, etc.) can interpret information about a specific person’s condition and situation. Patrons should consult health professionals for their specific medical questions.

The Center staff cannot control the availability of information links that often change rapidly and unpredictably. Not all online sources provide accurate, complete or current information, and some may be offensive. Parents must be responsible for what their children view. Users need to be good information consumers and question the validity of the information.

The Community Health Education Center does not bear any responsibility for any ill effects of the information gathered on its premises or from its staff.
