    Hello Sandy,

    The Patient Education Resource Center has reference books, consumer health books and a large collection of pamphlets and DVD’s developed here for Mayo patients and visitors. We also offer classes for Mayo patients on many health topics. There are more than 7000 items in our database, covering general wellness, specific diseases and conditions, and preparation for tests and procedures. There is a Cancer Education Center here as well, their webpage may be of interest to you. See the Stephen and Barbara Slaggie Family Cancer Education Center here: http://www.mayoclinic.org/cancer-education-rst/
