Health Tip of the Day

Toll-Free Numbers for Health Information

The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, offers a free online list of toll-free numbers related to health. The phone numbers are from selected groups that provide health information, education and support. The groups on the list do NOT diagnose or recommend treatment. Some of the groups have recorded messages and others provide counseling and referrals.
