- Q & A: Dr. Steve Cole on Loneliness
Excerpts from a conversation with Dr. Cole, who heads the NIH-funded Social Genomics Core Laboratory at the University of California, Los Angeles.
- Health Capsule: Preventing Shingles
Shingles most commonly occurs in adults over 50, but it can appear at any age. There are now two shingles vaccines approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that can help prevent shingles or lower the extent of the effects it may cause.

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!
