REVIEW:
As part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Web site, the "Snapshots of Medicine and Health" deals with health issues. However, this portion of the site focuses on current health topics, research, and technology. The site uses interactive learning to teach about the latest technologies. Users can find information about the people involved in biomedical sciences as well as current research. The site provides access to outside resources. Some of the site is under construction so users should check back frequently for new information. Health and science teachers will find information to supplement a number of different lessons. The site can also be coordinated with the history or current events curriculum.
