The collaboration that comprises Tribal Connections Four Corners proposes to develop a Go Local resource for the communities in the Four Corners region and promote its use in a year long project. From Tribal Health Connections we have learned that locating needed health services is difficult for the Four Corners communities. This information will be accessible when NLM expands Go Local nationwide and links can be made from MEDLINEplus to the identified services. The combination of reliable health information written at the lay level linked to local resources is a powerful tool. The geocoding that will be built into the Go Local system will allow users to locate health services that are close but across state boundaries, especially appropriate for reservations whose boundaries are not contained by a state. This is will be a valuable resource where health care services are scarce.
