Are you looking to find information on a particular health topic? The Gale Health and Wellness database, available via the Grafton Public Library’s website or directly at, is a great start to doing just that. You can find information on hundreds of different areas of health. This includes serious disease, common physical conditions, and practices for improving your physical and mental wellness.

When you are in the database, you will see a search bar where you can type in the topic, a description of the topic, or symptoms. If you aren’t sure exactly what you want, you can click on “Browse Topics” and you will find over 300 health areas to choose from.

For instance, I typed in “Food Allergies and Intolerances.” Below is an example of the available links:




Once you locate what you’re looking for, you will find extensive and comprehensive information, with links to related articles and subjects. You also have the option to pick the content type for the material you are looking for. You can choose reference materials, audio, video, magazines, the news, academic journals and imagery.

If you want specific information on your topic, or wish to find information on a related subject, a certain publication, or document type, you can choose to narrow your search by going to “Filter Your Results”. There are also other additional options available to help you locate the information you want.

After looking through this database, I highly recommend it as a great tool for parents, students, teachers, or anyone else searching for comprehensive Health and Wellness information.

The Gale Collection of Databases is provided by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
