NIHSeniorHealth.gov to be Retired August 2017

Posted by on June 21st, 2017 Posted in: General, National Library of Medicine News, Senior


On August 1, 2017, the NIHSeniorHealth.gov web site will be retired. NIHSeniorHealth.gov, the first government web site designed for older adults, was launched in 2003 by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM). The site provided evidence-based health information to millions of older adults in a format geared to their cognitive and visual needs.

Beginning August 1, 2017, NIHSeniorHealth.gov will redirect visitors to the Health and Aging section of NIA web site. There, visitors will find up-to-date and reliable information on aging research and health and wellness for older adults. Additionally, the NIA Go4Life web site offers exercises, motivational tips, and free resources to help older adults start and continue exercising. Other sources of information for older adults and their families include the NIHSeniorHealth YouTube Channel, which includes more than 110 videos about various health and wellness information, and the NLM consumer health web site, MedlinePlus, which offers three topics Exercise for Seniors, Nutrition for Seniors, and Seniors’ Health.
