Going on-line is the new “in” way to communicate quickly with others as well as research the latest information available.
From sending messages via electronic mail (e-mail) or surfing the Internet and World Wide Web for cancer resources, cyberspace is where it’s at.
If you don’t have Internet access at work, check with your local public library. Many libraries now provide computers for the public to access the Internet.
Here are some on-line cancer information resources and addresses:
Centers for Disease Control: http://www.cdc.gov
Cancer Information Service: firstname.lastname@example.org
National Cancer Institute: http:/ /www.nci.nih.gov/. CancerNet also can be accessed through e-mail. To get the CancerNet contents list from e-mail, send an e-mail message that says “help” in the body of the message to email@example.com/. To get the list via the National Institute of Health gopher, the address is gopher.nih.gov and look for CancerNet under “Health and Clinical Information.”
