Plain Language Dictionary

A team at the University of Michigan Taubman Health Sciences Library has developed a Plain Language Medical Dictionary Widget.  This tool uses plain language definitions from common medical terms from a little-known PDF that was created by the US government but never widely utilized. This dictionary widget makes that information more available, accessible, and discoverable in support of health literacy initiatives and outreach.
