Videos on MayoClinic.com
The Mayo Clinic provides consumer health information at http://www.mayoclinic.com/.
In addition to health information, this site features short instructional videos. The videos run an average of 30 seconds to under two minutes.
The information is easy to understand for the layperson. For example, view this video that describes how antidepressants help relieve depression. Each video also has a transcript listed next to the video.
There are collections of videos pertaining to exercise:
There are also videos on how to prepare healthy recipes, such as this one for honey crusted chicken.
The videos are archived as well in alphabetical order. It would be nice if they were sorted by categories, but it's good to at least have a full listing of their videos. These videos are ideal for referral to patients as well as for personal education.
