Read or listen to good health information

I was using MedlinePlus to check on information on osteoarthritis of the hip. I have it and am closing in on a total hip replacement. This librarian is researching! Anyway, just ran across MedlinePlus' collection of interactive tutorials on health -- understandable English (and in Spanish) and available with sound plus the graphics and words.

Interactive Health Tutorials : MEDLINEplus
"Using animated graphics each tutorial explains a procedure or condition in easy-to-read language." You can also listen to the tutorial. More than 150 interactive tutorials explain specific medical diseases and conditions, specific medical tests and diagnostic procedures, and specific surgery and treatment procedures.
