  • Coping with Caregiving: Take Care of Yourself While Caring for Others
    It can be a labor of love, and sometimes a job of necessity. A total of about 43 million U.S. adults provide unpaid care for someone with a serious health condition each year. These often-unsung heroes provide hours of assistance to others. Yet the stress and strain of caregiving can take a toll on their own health. NIH-funded researchers are working to understand the risks these caregivers face. And scientists are seeking better ways to protect caregivers’ health.
  • Halting Hypothermia: Cold Can Be Dangerous
    The frosty air of winter can be invigorating. But cold air can also pose threats to your health, whether you’re indoors or outside. If your body temperature drops too low, it can lead to a serious, sometimes deadly condition known as hypothermia. Learn to recognize the signs of this condition, and take steps to keep yourself and your family warm and safe during this chilly season.
  • Training Helps Doctors Spot, Treat At-Risk Teens
    After brief training sessions, pediatricians were more likely to recognize and treat teens for problems like drug and alcohol use. The findings may help improve ways to address mental health and substance abuse issues.
  • Featured Website: NIH Spanish Health Information Portal
    You can now find Spanish-language health information from across NIH in one place. This new site offers a wealth of free, science-based health information, including dozens of NIH News in Health articles. A new feature, called “Ask Carla,” invites your questions and comments about finding health info.

NIH News in Health is available online in both HTML and PDF formats. Additionally, you can get trusted, up-to-date health information from NIH News in Health added directly to your site via NIH content syndication. Print copies are available free of charge for offices, clinics, community centers, and libraries within the U.S. Visit the NIH News in Health Facebook page to suggest topics you’d like to see covered, or share what you find helpful about the newsletter!
