Health Education Resource Center

For the past decade the MHealthy Health Education Resource Center (HERC) has helped UMHS patients, U-M staff, and the community get the health information they need. The HERC offers programs and health materials to meet your health needs throughout your lifetime.

UMHS patients and health care providers, employees, as well as the community can use this website to search our health information library. To request additional information or check-out materials from the HERC, register on-line, email your requests, or call our library at 734-647-5645 or toll free at 1-800-433-6348.

The Health Education Resource Center is now part of the UMHS Resource Center Network catalog.

This enables HERC patrons to check out materials from other UMHS resource centers: the Mardigian Wellness Resource Center, the Patient Education Resource Center and the Women's Health Resource Center. Patrons may also return materials at any location in the network. Follow this link to our catalog.
