The Internet contains a wealth of information to help you to live a long time and to die healthy.  Not all of it is good information.  Whenever you seek answers to questions or concerns on the “Net” be sure to check on the source of that information.  Many sites use the promise of answers to your questions merely as a way of selling you a product or service.

The following are just a few of the sites which provide excellent information and services.  I have used each resource extensively and can testify to their integrity. Also, I am an employee of Bellin Health in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  It is an outstanding organization with a long and unique commitment to health and wellness, in addition to being a fine acute care hospital.  When I refer to it, I do so with the conviction that it offers the highest quality of care and services.

For Individuals:

  • A medical information card can prove invaluable in an emergency, especially if you are unable to communicate.
  • To get answers to all of your health and wellness questions see:
  • To learn about wellness and how to achieve it, see:
  • If you want to quit smoking, see:  (American Lung Association)
  • Health information for those who live in the Northeast Wisconsin area, see:
  • Learn about former Green Bay Packers President, John Jones, and his amazing message on men’s healthcare, visit:

For Businesses and Business Leaders:

  • To learn about the benefits of having healthy employees, see:
  • To learn how to keep your employees healthy and well see:
  • If your business is in northeast Wisconsin, see and in the “services” section, check out  “Occupational Health Solutions.”

Each of these sites contains a multitude of references to other related Internet sites.  Check them out.  Always exercise caution.

Finally, feel free to address questions or concerns to me, thatguynurse, and I will do my best to provide prompt and accurate answers.  Often you will be referred to your own primary physician; a person in whom, if you have confidence, will be your best partner in the task of living long and dying healthy.
