Two Custom Search Engines for Health Promotion and Prevention

Overwhelmed by getting way too much when searching?
The people who bring web searching to more desktops than any other now

information sources. Using a current list compiled from our own
experience of the past twenty years in health promotion, current
consultations, and others, we quickly created  this 
customized search engine.  Next, we created another custom search
engine focusing on Chronic Disease Prevention programs in Ontario. This
one searches through more than 1500 web sources. Try them out:
