The Engaged Patient:
Resources for the Engaged Patient
Patient Education Resource Center at U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center
The web is teeming with resources for patients who would like to take control of their health care. A good place to start your research is with the
University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center's Patient Education Center. Our librarian, Alexandra Sarkozy, can help you find the right
information for you. Also, visit the PERC to receive a Patient Tool Kit to help you stay organized.

as well as the nation.
