The NIH Word on Health

Consumer Health Information Based on Research from the National Institutes of Health

Due to confusion with other print or electronic publications named HEALTHWise, the January 1998 issue of NIH's HEALTHWise was its final one. Check out our new consumer health news information service, The NIH Word on Health. It is essentially the same as HEALTHWise, just with a new name.

The NIH Word on Health is a free consumer health information service from the National Institutes of Health. NIH plays a major role in finding better ways to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent diseases. The practical health news you can use in The NIH Word on Health is based on research conducted either by NIH's own scientists or by our grantees at universities and medical schools around the country.

The NIH Word on Health is published several times a year. Because the material in it is not copyrighted, anyone can use it without permission of the NIH. Writers and editors: We would appreciate receiving clips when you use our stories, graphics or photos in your publication. Please fax clips to 301-496-0017.
