We were driven by a desire to give people access to more resources to combat mental health issues that have become more apparent in the past year as well as helping them self-diagnose physical ailments to reduce potential exposure at the doctor's office.
What it does
It gives people resources to help cope with stress and loneliness, and learn what physical illnesses they might have based off of the symptoms that they input. The site also has information pages to learn more about the different illnesses, their symptoms, and how to treat it at home if possible, or if they need to seek immediate medical attention.

What's next for MedSearch
The database will be expanded to contain even more information and potential diseases to give the best diagnosis possible for the users. Due to time constraints, the design is on the simple side but we'll add to it later on. We started working on an Android app, but didn't manage to finish it in time. The app will be completed sometime during winter quarter.
