Jay Harold’s goal is to provide relevant and practical information for your health. The National Institutes of Health is an excellent source of reliable health information and a healthcare organization you need to know.
The largest biomedical research agency in the world, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has 27 institutes and centers that support 2,500 universities and research institutions throughout the United States. The institutes include the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), and National Institute on Aging (NIA).
Learn what tax dollars are doing to improve your health in numerous areas. Major areas of interest include Infectious and Chronic Diseases and Innovations in Healthcare. Maintaining good health at all ages is a primary goal of the NIH. A website on Senior Health provides health and wellness information in an easy to read format for older adults.
The National Eye Institute (NEI) works to help the approximately 9 million people in the United States have age-related macular degeneration, with 1.75 million having significant vision loss from the advanced form of the disease. To make women more aware of the danger of heart disease, NIH’s National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and partner organizations are sponsoring a national campaign called The Heart Truth®.
There are many valuable services provided by the other Institutes of the NIH. Here’s a link to the 27 Institutes, Centers, and Offices of the National Institutes of Health.
