The Friends of the National Library of Medicine (FNLM) is delighted to bring you another issue of NIH MedlinePlus magazine. As always, we want to offer you and your family good, helpful health information that is based on the very best medical research conducted by and for the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
This issue focuses on several topics in which NIH-funded research continues to make significant improvements to the health and well being of all Americans. Starting on page 10, our special section will bring you up to date on the latest research results about HIV and AIDS. It also offers a sobering look at the continuing growth of HIV among certain segments of the American population, especially those facing health disparities.
Other sections offer useful tips about maintaining a healthy weight, helping our seniors and their caregivers make the best lifestyle choices, and how women can prevent and treat peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.).
We are also pleased to present highlights from FNLM's conference on Electronic Health Records and the Annual Awards Dinner honoring the best medical researchers in the world. We hope you enjoy this issue!
