Mayo Clinic Launches Publishing Imprint (Does this have anything to do with disappearance of those very helpful Mayo Clinic pages?) : Health

I’m wondering if other have noticed that a few months ago, the Mayo Clinic web pages on many conditions — the ones that had basic diagnostic and treatment info – disappeared. At least, I haven’t been able to find them since last fall. They helped me understand and/or find better treatment frequently in the past.

Now it’s reported, they’re starting their own line of health books for “consumers”. Could this be related to taking down the excellent, free information that Mayo Clinic used to provide?

If so, what they really ought to do, is turn their pages into a subscription service, as books aren’t going to be as helpful as those easily searchable, linked web pages they used to have. Alas!
