MedlinePlus Covers

Our purpose is to present you with the best in reliable, up-to-date health information. We bring you the latest breakthroughs from NIH-supported research. We feature people from all walks of life talking about how they've handled their health challenges.

Sometimes it's the famous, like CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, television journalist Katie Couric, or cancer survivor Martina Navratilova. But mostly, it's regular people who have turned to NIH for care and want to share their stories. Often, too, NIH scientists will write about their efforts to cure disease. Lastly, the magazine's lively graphics, fun quizzes and practical tips have been designed with your daily health in mind.

We hope NIH MedlinePlus becomes a favorite source of trusted health information for you, whether you read it in your healthcare professional's office, local health center, clinic, or hospital waiting room. Best of all, we hope that you take out a free subscription.

NIH MedlinePlus is produced by NIH, the National Library of Medicine, and the Friends of the National Library of Medicine. Subscriptions are available free of charge.

With the best of good health to you and your family,
