April 21, 2017 -- If you've sometimes wondered if the medical website you just visited is trustworthy, you may find some answers at a presentation next month at the Santa Monica Library.

On Thursday, May 11, 2017, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., UCLA consumer health librarian Kelli Ham will offer "tips and tricks for finding quality health information on just about any topic," health officials said.

Titled "Beyond Dr. Google: Finding Reliable Health Information Online," The presentation includes recommendations on the best websites for "learning about symptoms, treatments, medications and "what the doctor said'"

Ham also will discuss the red flags and warning signs that help weed out questionable websites and provide a list of the best, easiest-to-use health information resources.

The session includes a demonstration of '"what the science says" about the effectiveness of complementary and alternative treatments," officials said.

The presentation at the Main Library's Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium is free and open to all ages.

Seating is limited and on a first arrival basis.

The Santa Monica Public Library is wheelchair accessible. For special disabled services, call Library Administration at (310) 458-8606 at least one week before the event.

The Main Library is served by Big Blue Bus routes 1, 7, R7, R10 and 18 and
provides bicycle parking racks.

For more information, visit or contact the Santa Monica Public Library at (310) 458-8600.
