My Southern Health

The Center for Knowledge Management (CKM) information scientists partner with the editorial board of Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s healthy lifestyle website, My Southern Health, to provide evidence-based consumer health information to the general public. Long term provision of consumer health by the CKM staff prepared the CKM team to understand the community’s needs for holistic wellness services and work with the My Southern Health team to provide current and vetted biomedical evidence to support and enrich their publications. The information scientists at CKM receive the list of topics of forthcoming articles in advance of publication, allowing the team sufficient time to prepare thorough evidence based resources for each article. CKM information scientists play an integral role in ensuring the accuracy and currency of My Southern Health content through the use of CKM information scientists' diverse expertise and ability to locate, assess, and synthesize the most up to date and highest level of biomedical information available. While My Southern Health is not intended as medical advice and should not replace medical providers’ recommendations and expert care, the evidence-based resources offer its readership a trustworthy source for health and lifestyle information. Areas of interest in the My Southern Health website include Family, Food, Wellness, Conditions, and Breakthroughs
