Consumer Health Resources

One of the primary goals of the LHI is to provide consumer health education resources to the community at large. Our physical library in the 5th floor Atrium on the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center campus includes a large library of patient education pamphlets and flyers. Members of the community can also request health information by calling or emailing the library. All health information requests and materials are provided free of charge.

Community Health

The LHI also participates in various community health fairs during the year. With social distancing and other health guidelines in place, we are looking for ways to reach the community through virtual events. We see this as an opportunity to extend our community health education efforts far beyond our usual geographic limitations! Reach out to us if you are having a virtual community health event, and let us know how we can help.
