New NIH Radio Features Available

Three new 60-second “Health Matters” radio spots from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) encourage using family reunions to review family health history. Learning about the health history of siblings, parents, and other blood relatives can provide clues to one’s risk for developing serious diseases such as type 2 diabetes and kidney disease.

Visit www.nih.gov/news/radio/healthmatters to hear the new spots or read their transcripts. A longer NIH radio audio report on this subject is also available at www.nih.gov/news/radio/jun2011/20110623NIDDKfamilyreunions.htm.
