  • Dealing with Dementia: When Thinking and Behavior Decline
    Forgetfulness, confusion, or having trouble remembering a name or word can be a normal part of life. But when thinking problems or unusual behavior starts to interfere with everyday activities—such as working, preparing meals, or handling finances—it’s time to see a doctor. These could be signs of a condition known as dementia.
  • Avoiding Anemia: Boost Your Red Blood Cells
    If you’re feeling constantly exhausted and sluggish, you might have a condition called anemia. Anemia is a common blood disorder that many people develop at some point in their lives.
  • Insights into Brain Injury
    Scientists have uncovered new details about what happens in the brain after a concussion. The findings point to possible ways to reduce the harmful effects of these injuries.
  • Who Needs a Knee Replacement?
    If you or someone you know is considering knee replacement, a new resource can help you understand how it works, how to prepare for surgery, and what to expect in recovery.
  • Featured Website: 2014 Multicultural Health Planners
    Let NIH help you get healthier in 2014. These free multicultural planners, called A Year of Health, provide information about staying healthy and managing conditions of the bones, joints, muscles, and skin. Planners are targeted to African American, Hispanic, Asian American, and Native American populations.
