Helpguide's Harvard Collaboration
Helpguide is collaborating with Harvard Health Publications, the consumer health publishing division of Harvard Medical School. The articles listed below have been adapted from Harvard Health Publications and added to the Helpguide site as free educational supplements.
In addition, smaller excerpts from Harvard Health Publications have been inserted into Helpguide articles to enhance these articles.
The collaboration takes place without an exchange of funds. We are excited about this relationship and it’s benefits to our readers.
