The first module, "Do You Know Your Rights as a Patient?" by Gisele Edgerly, details the personal and financial rights of hospital patients.

The third module, "The Importance of Women Receiving Regular Pap Smears" by Jane Green, describes pap smear procedures, identifies the facilities where women may receive tests, and discusses the attitudinal problems which often prevent women from obtaining pap tests. The fourth module, "Don't Stick Me with That Needle!" was designed by Linda L. Kundert to ameliorate children's fears of having their blood drawn by a phlebotomist. The fifth module, "Alcohol and You" by Michele D. Sandro, describes the physiological effects of alcoholic beverages.
