May 17, 2005
 

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM) have developed the NIHSeniorHealth Website http://nihseniorhealth.gov. This interactive site was designed with the needs of older adults in mind, and includes large-print materials, relevant information, and features that are easy to use. To increase awareness among older Americans about low vision and the benefits of vision rehabilitation, NIHSeniorHealth includes user-friendly information, frequently asked questions, and other resources to help seniors with low vision learn more about maintaining an active and independent lifestyle. Go to the NIHSeniorHealth Website and find health information that older Americans need to know. http://nihseniorhealth.gov
