Redesigned NIHSeniorHealth Now Available
The National Library of Medicine and National Institute on Aging have released their redesigned version of NIHSeniorHealth, the National Institutes of Health website for older adults http://nihseniorhealth.gov. The redesign improves usability and modernizes the appearance throughout the site. Changes incorporate user feedback about the site as well as results from usability testing of proposed designs with seniors.
Buttons in the new banner allow you to link directly to over 50 health topics and 150 videos. Once you click on a health topic, the bar along the left side allows you to to go straight to a particular section of the health topic page (“In this topic”); find quizes and videos (“Learn More”), and go to related topics in NIHSeniorHealth (“Related Topics”) and in the National Institute on Aging’s website.
