NLM Announces New Look for NIHSeniorHealth

In March, the National Library of Medicine and the National Institute on Aging (NIA) released a redesigned version of NIHSeniorHealth, the National Institutes of Health consumer health Web site for older adults, launched in 2002. 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.

The redesign includes:

  • New NIHSeniorHealth Banner makes it easier to find information on the website
  • New left-side navigation to make searching for topics easier
  • New search feature that shows top ten results for a search topic
