Online studies
The project -- OnlineSchools.org -- is a general information website with many resources useful to prospective students interested in advancing their education. Among the many subjects covered on our site, we discuss the offline and online educational paths one can follow to obtain a degree in public health or a related field.
As a valuable resource to anyone interested in a career in public health, I thought the project could be of interest to yourself and others who frequently visit the AeGU site.

This site has a new and improved search tool for accredited college degree programs. It is so critical that folks attend accredited programs to ensure they receive transferable credits and qualify for financial aid.

This organization has created a location based search tool for universities, online colleges, and community colleges across the nation (with a nice Google maps interface). The site also provides some very relevant college statistics and information.

AffordableCollegesOnline.org is dedicated to providing free higher education tools and information for current and future college students and their families.

I wanted to say thank you for offering such a great health and wellness resource library to your readers. Sites like yours encourage the US Health Corps team to keep an open conversation about what we can all be doing to take better care of ourselves, so thank you for being a source of inspiration for us!

I found a few other resources I thought you might like to update your page with, so I encourage you to share any of these you think your audience will find helpful on your site:
