National Institutes of Health MedlinePlus Advisory Group

The NIH MedlinePlus Advisory Group fosters collaboration between Institutes to guide the general public to NIH consumer-level content. The group meets formally three times per year, advising NLM on a broad range of issues that arise in developing, maintaining, evaluating and promoting MedlinePlus as the NIH portal to health information. Throughout the year, members communicate with the team as needed to facilitate the integration of subject information and technical features between the various Institute sites and MedlinePlus.
