New Health Newsletter Debuts

NIH News in Health, a new consumer newsletter providing practical health news and tips based on research conducted or funded by NIH, debuted Apr. 4. The free publication will be distributed around the country to community health clinics, libraries and anywhere else people seek reliable information about their health. Produced by the Office of Communications and Public Liaison, NIH NiH replaces the NIH Word on Health with a friendlier, more accessible approach and a more frequent publication schedule.

Each issue of the 4-page newsletter will contain one or two feature stories along with two or three "Health Capsules," short items describing recent advances in health and medicine and a web site spotlight. The publication debuts with a cover story about NIEHS's Sister Study on breast cancer and a feature story on pain and endometriosis. Upcoming issues will explore lower back pain, the promise of personalized medicine and why people often eat more than they think they're eating.

Visit the new web site at to browse stories or download printer-friendly copies of the latest issue. Get email updates when new issues are posted online by sending an email to with the words "subscribe nihnewsinhealth-L" in the message body.
