From the NIH Office of Communications & Public Liaison –
We’d like to hear from you. Tell the National Institutes of Health (NIH) how you find and use health information by responding to the questions at http://nihhealthinfoRFI.nih.gov
Your responses will help NIH understand which health topics you’re interested in, so we can prepare more effective health information and get it to the people who need it.
The questions — called the Consumer Health Information Request for Information (RFI) — can be completed online in English or downloaded from the Web site in Spanish.
The RFI was developed through a partnership between NIH’s Office of Communication and Public Liaison and the NIH Director’s Council of Public Representatives.
The RFI closes Wednesday, December 30th. For more information, please visit http://nihhealthinfoRFI.nih.gov.
